Electors for Thornton (near Skipton) (1848)
On 14 and 15 December 1848 an election took place for a Knight of the Shire for the West Riding of Yorkshire in the House of Commons. The candidates were Edmund Denison and sir Culling Eardley Eardley, gaining 14,743 and 11,795 votes respectively. The county franchise at this period included freeholders of land worth 40s or more a year; 10 copyholders and long-leaseholders; and 50 short-leaseholders and tenants. This poll book was published in 1849. Former poll books had been compiled from the sheriff's returns; but as these were now transmitted to the Home Office immediately after an election, in this instance the polling was marked from the check-clerk's returns, carefully compared with the registers marked in the poll booths at the time of voting. The votes for the respective candidates are indicated by the numerals 1 (Denison) and 2 (Eardley). The omission of these numerals indicates that the elector did not vote. Many names which appear on the register of particular townships are completely omitted in this poll book: in all these cases, the same name will be found recorded in some other township, the elector having two or more qualifications. In such cases, his name only appears in the poll book in the actual township for which he chose to vote; or, if he did not vote at all, in that township for which he was qualified that lay closest to his actual residence. The townships are arranged alphabetically within polling district; and within each township the names are arranged alphabetically by surname and christian name, and the elector's residence is given. Many of the electors resided outside the township for which they were qualified - some in other counties. Moreover, at the end of each polling district there is a list of persons registered to poll in that district, from townships is other districts.

British Army officers in the annexation of the Punjab (1845-1849)
By 1845 the Sikh state of Lahore was the remaining substantial military power in the Indian sub-continent outside British rule. Its khalsa army was well equipped, disciplined, tenacious and had three European officers among its commanders. The sikhs controlled not only the Punjab, but Pathan tribes as far as the border with Afghanistan, and the whole of Kashmir. The river Sutlej formed the boundary between the Sikh state and British India. In early December 1845 the Sikh army crossed the Sutlej and invested the British garrisons at Ferozepore; 13 December 1845 the British declared war. After defeat in a series of battles, at Moodkee (18-21 December), Ferozeshah (21-22 December); Budhowal and Aliwal (23 December, 28 January); and Sobraon (10 February 1846), the state of Lahore submitted to the Treaty of Lahore, ceding the Punjab between the Sutlej and the Beas, Kashmir, and paying half a crore of rupees. The state of Lahore itself continued under the durbar as a British protectorate during the minority of the young maharajah; and the Sikh army was put under British command. Kashmir was sold by the British to the ruler of Jammu for a crore, and the submission of Kashmir to Jammu was effected by a Sikh force under British officers. British garrisons were placed in the Punjab, but the fort at Multan refused to submit, and had to be besieged. During the siege a Sikh regiment defected to join other khalsa remnants, in defiance of the durbar at Lahore, and raised a rebellion (August 1848 to January 1849). Battles at Chillianwalla (13 January 1849) and Gujerat (21 February 1849) destroyed the Sikh army. The British then annexed the whole of the Punjab, incorporating it into British India. This account of the Annexation of Punjab by Arthur D. Innes and General Charles Gough was published in 1897, but with a poor index; we have remedied that. The account also includes a description of the battles of Maharajapore and Puniar (29 December 1843) by which the army of Gwalior was destroyed.

Bankrupts in England and Wales (1849)
Perry's Bankrupt and Insolvent Gazette, issued monthly, included lists of bankruptcies and stages in the liquidation of the estate, payment of dividends, and discharge. The initial entry in this sequence gives the name of the bankrupt (surname first, in capitals), the date gazetted, address and trade (often with the phrase dlr. and ch., meaning dealer and chapman); the dates and times and courts of the official processes of surrender; the surname of the official commissioner (Com.); the surname of the official assignee; and the names and addresses of the solicitors; the date of the fiat; and whether on the bankrupt's own petition, or at the demand of petitioning creditors, whose names, trades and addresses are given. In subsequent entries the bankrupt is often merely referred to by name and trade. This is the index to the names of the bankrupts, from the issues from January to December 1849, which may or may not include the detailed first entry for any particular individual.

Boys entering Cheltenham College (1849)
Cheltenham College 'was founded in order to provide for the sons of gentlemen a Classical, Mathematical, and General Education of the highest order, on moderate terms, in strict conformity with the principles and doctrines of the Church of England.' Andrew Alexander Hunter, the college registrar, compiled the first edition of the College Register in four parts from 1883 to 1886: these merely listed the boys by term of entry, with their dates of birth and names and addresses of their fathers. Circulars were also sent out to all Old Cheltonians whose addresses were known, requesting additional details. On the basis of the returns from these and Hunter's further researches, this much fuller register was published in 1890. The information after each boy's name is given (where known and applicable) in this format: father's full name and address as of the time the boy entered the college; class and department on entering the college (classes being number from 1 downwards, and these again divided into A and B, some into C and D, others into P (Principal's side) and V. P. (Vice-Principal's side) - 1A was the highest class in each department: besides this, certain others were called Addiscombe, Woolwich, Civil, Direct, Line, Sandhurst, Naval, Special, Preparatory, Latin, and India Civil) and the same on leaving, name of Boarding House (or 'Day Boy'), scholastic and athletic honours attained at the college, and subsequent career (including date and place of death, or present address in 1890, if known).
