Notes: This is the complete register of qualified Bosbury voters in December 1851. Entries in red are the 23 individuals who did not vote in the 1852 Parliamentary election. In the 1851 census there were 306 men aged 21 and over so the 83 eligible men amounted to 27% of the village men. This would not change until the acts of 1918 and 1928 allowed all men and women aged 21 and over to vote.
