1727: Poll Book

The 1727 Yorkshire poll was a bye-election for a representative in Parliament, following the death of the Tory incumbent, Sir Arthur Kaye. The two candidates were Sir John Kaye (Sir Arthur Kaye's nephew), and Cholmley Turner as an 'independent' Whig. Turner won by 7,683 votes to Kaye's 4,264.

The poll book for this poll is not printed, but in manuscript form, and largely unsorted. 

I have made no attempt to correct the spellings of people or places, or to expand abbreviations.
