Norfolk: Great Yarmouth


Voting Registers - Poll 1812

The poll for two members to serve in Parliament for the Borough of Great Yarmouth, taken on the 6th of October 1812 and published by J. Keymer. The transcription includes :- Voters names, Occupations, Residences & some relationships.

Most of the places of residence are in Norfolk or Suffolk but a number of people are seen to be living elsewhere. The notes section will help to identify the location of some of these.

The original had "Surname, Christian-name(s), Occupation, Residence" separated by commas but all in the one column. The last two columns ie. "Occupation" and "Residence" have been separated from the peoples names to create three columns here. A few entries have "residence,county" and these have been reproduced as printed.
