Candidates:
The Hon. John Stuart Wortley,
Edmund Beckett Denison, Esquire,
The Right Hon. Lord Viscount Morpeth,

The requirement to vote at that time was that you must own or hold a minimum 60
year lease on land to a minimum value of £10 or be paying a rent at £50 per annum

The ballot was a public affair and lists like the one we have transcribed below
were later published.

A 1 in the column indicates which 2 candidates votes were cast for. Wortley and Denison represented the Conservative party (They were elected) and Milton and Morpeth were Whigs.

An * after the elector's name indicates that he is a yearly occupier at a rental of £50.
