In the publication

"election of knights of the shire for the county of antrim
List of the Poll showing at one view how and when each elector voted. By a member of the Independent Committee- Belfast. Printed by John Hughes, Bookseller and Stationer, Bridge Street. 1790"[/i]

Election held on 15th May 1790 and there were 4 candidates

Honourable Hercuiles Rowley Langford Lodge (Sitting Member)
Right Hon. John O'Neill Shanes Castle (Sitting Member)
James Leslie Esq. Leslie Hill (New Candidate)
Edmund A. McNughton Esq. Beardeville (New Candidate)

I am reading from a transcipt of this publication. I don't know how the franchise worked back then but the transcript concludes the long list of names saying that 3538 freeholders were polled and that the sitting members were elected.

Perhaps of interest to you is that it say that there is an Alderdice on this list of voters

Alderdice James Derriaghy and he voted for James Leslie & Edmund McNaughton

 There is also a Rainey Boomer but not partridge

thank you for that information, Magheragall, I'm sure that will fit in somwhere. Alderdice doesn't seem to be a common name there. I read that the Alderdice family came up with the Huguenots also. Every little bit of information, when put together, makes the story come alive.
Co.Antrim- Boomer (Bulmer), Partridge, Houston, Alderdice,
Co. Down- Leckey (lackey etc), Taylor,

I am part of the Alderdice family that had the travellers rest inn  and have been having trouble getting any information On Edward Alderdice. Jane Alderdice did marry John Partridge but may have been before registration was taken as I cannot find the parents of Edward I know his wife Jane Allen did in 1829 and he was a member of the masons but not much more

Hi there!

Are you saying that Edward's wife Jane Allen died in 1829?

I have a newspaper notice of their marriage, from September 1829, and they had children born after that date.

Feel free to message me here, or e-mail me at (*)  I am descended from the Partridge/Alderdice marriage from about 1849.

Thanks!
Mike
