Transcription of the Members of Parliament for Scarborough, 1298 to 1807.

The Following is a List* of Members sent to Parliament by the Borough of Scarborough, from the 26th Edward 1, 1298 to 47th George 111 1807.

* The list up to the 7th Edward IV 1468 is copied from Prynne's Brevis Parlimentaria, Pt.IV,p.iiii.

Transcribed from The History and Antiquities of Scarborough and the Vicinity written by Thomas Hinderwell. Published 1811.

I have set it out as it is written and have transcribed as such there are some obvious discrepencies such as year of reign nos and there is a note in the book regarding the spelling of names and I quote"Many of the names are evidently the same though differently spelt in the writs".
