Norfolk: Great Yarmouth


Voting Registers - Poll 1826

The poll for two members to serve in Parliament for the Borough of Great Yarmouth, taken on the 9th and 10th of June, 1826 and published by J. Barnes & W. Meggy. The transcription includes :- Voters names, Occupations, Residences & some relationships.

The original had entries of the form :- "Surname, Christian-name(s), Occupation, Residence" separated by commas but all in the one column.

The poll book comprises 2 sections :-

  • 1. Pages 3 to 23 contain voters residing in Yarmouth (where residence field is blank) or Southtown.
  • 2. Pages 24 to 30 contain "Non-Resident Voters".
    • Most of these 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 last two columns ie. "Occupation" and "Residence" have been separated from the peoples names to create three columns here.
