Discover your ancestor in this index from the women’s suffrage petition of 1866 obtained through www.parliament.uk. Additional information about these records can be found on the source’s website.
The suffrage petition of 1866 was the first Votes for Women mass petition put before Parliament. It was presented on 7 June 1866 by John Stuart Mill, a Member of Parliament. The original document with the individuals’ signatures no longer exists. However, the list of signatories was printed in a pamphlet for circulation in 1866. Today, only two copies of this list exist, and it was from this document that this index was created.
