1780
Inhabitants of the City of London

In August 1780 this loyal petition was made to king George III,
subscribed by 2800 'Liverymen, Freemen, and Others, Inhabitants of the
City of London', expressing grateful thanks 'for that Protection, which,
by the Wisdom, Vigilance, and Activity of your Majesty in Council, was
so seasonably given to us, at a Time when our Lives, Property, and every
Thing dear to us, were in such imminent Danger, from the Violence of the
most outrageous Banditti that ever existed.' This refers to the Gordon
Riots, caused by a bill which Parliament introduced in 1778 to repeal
certain harsh laws against Roman Catholics: in June 1780 a mob
protesting against this repeal assembled in London, forced its way into
the House of Commons, attacked Newgate prison releasing many prisoners,
and destroyed a great deal of property, until dispersed by the military.

1832
Liverpool Poll Book

A poll for the election of Members of Parliament for the Borough of
Liverpool, between William Ewart esquire (E), Lord Viscount Sandon (S),

all voters with full name (surname first), occupation, address, and
initials indicating for whom they voted. The lists are in six sections:
Everton, Kirkdale, the parish of Liverpool, Toxteth Park, West Derby,
and Liverpool burgesses and freemen. All householders of property worth
£10 a year of more were entitled to vote.

1854
British casualties at Inkerman

Sebastopol in the Crimea was the great Russian naval arsenal on the
Black Sea. A combined assault by British, French and Turkish troops
resulted in the reduction of Sebastopol and led to the Treaty of Paris
of 27 April 1856, guaranteeing the independence of the Ottoman Empire.
In the battle of Inkerman, of November 1854, the Russian troops made an
ultimately unsuccessful attack on the allied army. In December the War
Office issued lists of soldiers killed and wounded at Inkerman: there
are separate returns for 2 to 6 November, 7 to 20 November, and 21 to 26
November, as well as one for soldiers missing, and one for members of
the Naval Brigade killed and wounded.

The Journal of Mental Science for 1906 included a full list of members
