Archival history:
The exact provenance of these documents is now unknown. Most of the documents seem to have emanated from the papers of Thomas Hall Esquire and G.P. Jervoise Esquire both of whom were prominent in local affairs. Some of the papers (e.g. those relating to the London and South Western Railway and the Harnham, Blandford and Dorchester turnpike) may have been gathered together because the Jervoise family were interested parties and their property was affected by the undertakings; other papers (e.g. those relating to the Basingstoke Canal) were amassed because the family were shareholders in the Company. It seems likely that those papers relating to undertakings which do not particularly concern the family or its property were amalgamated by G.P. Jervoise in his capacity as Member of Parliament. Other papers may more properly belong in the Quarter Sessions section (see especially nos. 151-152 and 190-191). Some documents, especially the accounts (nos. 184-185) and the coach advertisement cards (no. 187) are probably simply personal papers. Original bundles have been noted wherever this has been obvious.

7-39 17th century parliamentary papers probably kept by Sir Thomas Jervoise (1588-1654)
40-48 17th century papers relating to local politics probably kept by Sir Thomas Jervoise (1588-1654)

416-470 19th century papers relating to local politics probably kept by George Purefoy Jervoise (1770-1847)
471-472 Undated 19th century papers relating to local politics
473-485 Numbers not used
486-538 Additional deposit Dec 1998

The documents in 44M69/G2 (formerly box-listed as 44M69/04-08) concern the political careers of various members of the Jervoise family, from the 17th to the 19th centuries.
In addition there are several rolls concerning the attainder of Sir William Berkeley of Worcestershire 1485-1495.
The papers are arranged in a broadly chronological sequence, century by century under the heading of their most probable creator/keeper, or under a separate, undated heading; and within these headings they are divided into:
1) Papers concerning the daily business of the Houses of Parliament, and national politics, e.g. printed and manuscript copies of petitions to Parliament; lists of MPs in the Commons; printed copies of the Commons' Votes and Proceedings; copies of royal speeches, etc.
2) Papers concerning local politics, especially election campaigns, e.g. poll books and related lists of electors; letters from canvassers and supporters to candidates; election handbills and campaign material; accounts of expenses by candidates etc.
The members of the Jervoise family whose careers are most illuminated by these political papers, are:
Sir Thomas Jervoise (1588-1654); Captain Thomas Jervoise (1615-1693); Thomas Jervoise (1667-1743); Jervoise Clarke Jervoise (1734-1808) and George Purefoy Jervoise (1770-1847).
Please note that there are certain periods, for instance in the 1680s/90s, when more than one of the above individuals was politically active, so the arrangement by headings under these individuals at such times becomes more difficult to determine, and, of necessity, somewhat arbitrary.
