Thank you for this Lynda - I found two references to my Martin DEWING of
Cawston - in Polls for 1714 and 1734. (They may be father and son).

Can anyone give me some background on these Polls and what they were for?
Are they actually for electing members to Parliament? The title on the one I
found is "A copy of the poll for the Knights of the Shire for the County of
Norfolk, taken at Norwich May 22 1734. "
and then there's a list of candidates.

Regards,
Jeanette (NZ).
