Norfolk Voting Registers - 1734 Poll


Towns & Parishes beginning with H

A copy of the poll for the Knights of the Shire for the county of Norfolk, taken at Norwich, May 22, 1734 taken before William Woodley Esq., High Sheriff

The Towns are set in an alphabetical Order; and so are all the Freeholders under each Town.

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.


This contains the following parishes where property was held. The names in brackets "()" are alternative spellings as used in the original poll book.

  • 1. Brand is most likely to be Brandon Parva but could also be Brandiston etc.?
  • 2. "Hellington Freb. L. H." is Hillington. This was printed as "Hellington Freb. Lod. H." which looks like a printers error for "Hellington Freb. Lynn. H."?
  • 3. The word "Honing" was written in ink in the original poll book.
  • 4. Holt crossed out and "Happ" written in ink.
  • 5. In the transcription of the Poll Book the modern spelling of place names has been added in brackets "()" to many of the entries so that a search will find them.
  • 6. Entries marked "**" had no votes printed against them.
  • 7. All the Hundreds and Candidates together with their abbreviations are to be found on the main 1734 Poll Book page.
  • 8. Denham could be Bradenham/Hedenham/Quidenham/Tuddenham or elsewhere?
  • 9. "M." is probably "Market Harling" = "East Harling".
  • 10. Dillington (in Launditch Hundred) is a hamlet of East Dereham parish (in Mitford Hundred), next to the village of Hoe in Launditch Hundred. Howe is a village in Clavering Hundred.

Places with no voters

The following places :-
    Heckingham, Helhoughton and Holverston 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 I.

Towns and Parishes

The book contains the following (where "A" is Acle to Aylsham etc.):-
