Register of Electors in the Burgh of Forres, 1873 (surnames S - Z)

An alphabetical list of those eligible to vote in the Burgh of Forres in 1873 with surnames beginning with S - Z. This copy was used by canvassers during the General Election campaign of 1874 in the Inverness Burghs.

In addition to the electors' name each entry includes their place of abode, occupation, nature of qualification (reason for eligibility) and address. It has been used to canvas the way each elector voted, or stated they had voted with an 'R' marked for Eneas MacKintosh of Raigmore, an 'F' for Charles Fraser MacKintosh. Also, some are marked 'absent' and some are marked 'dead'. The total figures are noted at the end of the page.

The result of the election for the Inverness Burghs seat (comprising Inverness, Nairn, Forres, and Fortrose) was:
Fraser MacKintosh (independent Liberal) 1134
MacKintosh of Raigmore (Liberal) 879
MacKintosh of Holme (Conservative) 16.

In the election as a whole the Liberals, led by William Gladstone, won a majority of the votes cast, but Benjamin Disraeli's Conservatives secured a majority of seats in the House of Commons, largely because they won a number of uncontested seats
