Notes Published as part of the parliamentary reports concerning the 1832 Reform Act, which introduced wide-ranging changes to the electoral system. The act was designed to "take effectual Measures for correcting diverse Abuses that have long prevailed in the Choice of Members to serve in the Commons House of Parliament." Its chief objective was the reduction of the number of nomination boroughs, thus accurate mapping of the new boroughs was required. The maps produced used the Ordnance Survey and Robert Kearsley Dawson's survey work as their foundation (and bear his signatue), and often show boundaries of proposed boroughs and those of the parishes and townships.
