Census details

Some aspects of Jane Cannell's life. Now here's a turn up I did not expect. I have always believed that women did not have a vote until the women's sufferage movement forced change (begining 1873 in NZ). Looks like I was wrong, as Jane (now a widow) was enrolled as a 'citizen in 1880, in St Peter per Mountergate, Norwich. Her husband was previously on the roll for the same qualifying property, so it appears that Jane took over his rights. She is not on her own, as all but 2 of the 26 people listed in the page A-F) are all women. The books are printed, and appear to have been published every year, so this may have been only for local govenment elections?6
