Secondary circumstances

Census details

Some aspects of Walter George B Chugg's life. Walter was in the 'Revision Court' in 1909. He did not turn 21 until after the election in 1909, but he was down to vote. His vote for the Radical Party was disallowed. It is interesting to note that the Oversee-er of the election was P CHUGG, and he said Walter's father 'told him that Walter was over 21'. Mr Hendy, who was one of the solicitors who represented the Unionists, proved Water's age with a birth certificate.4
