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.
