The "Claims for Enrolment" include lists of names and abode of all people in the whole county who were to be entitled to vote in the 1839 election, plus letters and documents relating to those who were being removed from the previous electoral roles, with reasons for removal, and those being added to the role, again with qualifications for being included.
These 36 documents are of immense value to historians and genealogists with Linlithgowshire interests.
