" I have heard that in former days," wrote a town-clerk of Bristol, " the prospect of an election would bring hesitating or lagging swains to a sense of the desirability of prompt action." There were honorary freemen and non-resident freemen, both having votes. The tendency of parliamentary action was to restrict the class of freemen, for the representation of a borough with numerous freemen was an expensive luxury. On the other hand, it might be convenient to swamp the existing body of electors. At Bristol, in 1812, 1,720 freemen were admitted with a view to an election in the autumn of that year.
Under the electoral system as it worked before 1832 a small number of powerful and wealthy men controlled all the elections. Not that the house of commons was uninfluenced by public opinion. Any great wave of feeling or opinion was sure to reach the house and to produce effects there. The counties were more independent than the boroughs, and the larger boroughs sometimes had views of their own as to the way in which their members should vote. But the number of pocket boroughs, whose members were expected to vote as their patrons told them, was very large. John Wilson
