Borough of Newport 1855/56 Voters Lists
These records show those people entitled to vote for members of the Borough of Newport in the years 1855 and 1856. The majority of those listed appear in both lists, but both are given as there are some slight variations which may be of interest.
The abode and parish of the individuals is given together with details of the properties which give them the entitlement.
Freemen of the Borough were also entitled to vote.
The original records are held by the Isle of Wight County Record Office, and have been transcribed by Shani Watts.
