CANVASS BOOK
1841 BOROUGH ELECTION


This is a 'Canvass Book' for the town of Carnarvon in the Carnarvon Borough Election of 1841, when William Bulkeley Hughes defeated Captain Charles Paget by 405 votes to 385. The canvasser was clearly campaigning on behalf of Bulkeley Hughes and some of his remarks - made after the polling - are interesting and, at times, piquant.

At the bottom of each page there are notes. In the "Remarks" column of the canvass book, some entries have extra remarks written in pencil, which have been written over in ink. These are recorded in the notes.
