Register of Persons Entitled to Vote - Borough of Nottingham


Cat No.:   GB1170:

Book 1 - 1846

Book 2 - 1848-49

Book 3 - 1849-50

Unlike the normal "Poll Books", which were a record of those actually voting, these books contain the names and addresses of all persons entitled to vote in the election for a Member of Parliament.

To be entitled to vote in the elections, a person must have owned a house or some land. These books state the names of the people, their place of abode, the nature of their qualification to vote, and the place where their property is situated. (The 1846 book is just a list of names and addresses of Freemen entitled to vote).
