Register of electors, 1835-7

These are the Buckinghamshire electors listed for Winslow, and those with property in adjacent parishes who lived in Winslow. There may have been other Winslow residents with property further away which qualified them to vote. The qualification to vote in county constituencies was being a male householder with freehold property (of which there was still very little in Winslow) worth 40s, copyhold property worth £10, or various sorts of long lease. The people listed below as "occupiers" mainly had leases from the Lowndes estate. Scroll down to see who they voted for.

The few Liberal voters in Winslow seem mainly to have been Congregationalists, but it's interesting to find that they also included the Willises, father and son, who were the town's leading solicitors.
