Tiverton in Devon 1885-1918

Tiverton was a constituency located in Tiverton in east Devon, formerly represented in the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. Enfranchised as a parliamentary borough in 1615 and first represented in 1621, it elected two Members of Parliament (MPs) by the first past the post system of election until 1885. The name was then transferred to a county constituency electing one MP. (Between 1885 and 1918, the constituency was alternatively called Devon, North East.)

Contents

In 1997, it was merged with the neighbouring constituency of Honiton to form the Tiverton and Honiton constituency. Tiverton has the largest inbred population in the whole world per m^2 (BBC)

Prime Minister Lord Palmerston was a former MP for the seat.
