  • 1. This looks like it should just say "Lod(don) H."?
  • 2. This may be CARNELL?
  • 3. This surname is also seen as "BEATNIFFE" in "A List of Norfolk Benefices" 1847 by Dawson Turner.
  • 4. Bitcham W. could be Beecham Weld (Beechamwell)?
  • 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. All the Hundreds and Candidates together with their abbreviations are to be found on the main 1734 Poll Book page.
  • 7. "Old Lynn" is marked on old maps on the west bank of the river.
  • 8. This "S." may mean "South Lynn"?

Places with no voters

The following places :-   Lynford and Lynn, North (North Lynn) 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 M.
