Hebden Electors in 1832

This is a list of the Hebden electorate in 1832. This would have been before the effects of the 1832 Reform Act, and the franchise was limited to male freeholders aged at least 21 whose lands were worth more than forty shillings.

The last column gives the qualification for that person's vote, and is headed in the original document as:
