Cornwall's Rotten MPs

Before 1832 Cornwall was famous for its 'rotten boroughs' - - parliamentary constituencies with few voters where a seat in parliament could be bought. London with a population of 1.5 million had 6 MPs; Cornwall with a population of 300,000 had 42.

This book includes brief biographies of some of the more interesting Cornish MPs prior to 1832, many of who, poor chaps, never even visited Cornwall.
