Voters' List for the year 1836
Nepean Township, Carleton County, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
February 11, 2012:
A Who's Who of early Nepean
This is an attempt at deciphering the names of the 1836 voters from Nepean
Township. The original document is hand-written and difficult to read in
some cases. The eligibility rules allowed only male property owners to vote.
Some of the voters lived in other townships and held land in Nepean. Some other
names are illegible (to me) and are not included.
The voting took place over a five day period.
The candidates were messrs Malloch, Lyon and Johnson.
