  • 1. St Mary looks like an error for St Marg(aret).
  • 2. All the Hundreds and Candidates together with their abbreviations are to be found on the main 1734 Poll Book page.
  • 3. Probably Barton Bendish but could be Barton Turf?
  • 4. 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.

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