Each Page consists of six Columns. The first contains the Names of the Resident Freeholders in each Town; the second, the Freeholds when different from the Place of Residency. The other four have the initial Letters of the Candidates Names set at Top, and the Black Lines drawn under them shew how every Freeholder voted.

  • 1. All the Hundreds and Candidates together with their abbreviations are to be found on the main 1734 Poll Book page.
  • 2. Castle Rising had NO one who voted for this poll because it elected its own MP's.

Places with no voters

The following places :-
    Choseley, Claxton, Clippesby, Colney and Cranwich
had no one who lived there and voted because of a freehold in the same place.

Note that many people still voted based on a freehold held elsewhere. An example of this is Whinburgh with no freehold entries but with the following :-

  • John Coleman, a Clerk (Clergyman) is under Hardingham (in Mitford Hundred) because he lives there but claims a vote because of a freehold in Whinburgh (Whinborough).

The Poll book continues with Towns and Parishes beginning with the letter D.
