The Political Inclinations of Common Council, 1716
The list of common councilmen printed below appeared in The Post Boy
for 19-21 April 1716 (No. 4170) on the occasion of the installation of the
Common Council elected the previous December. The list was organised
by wards, with 132 names (those of the Tories) printed in roman, 95 names
(those of the Whigs) in italic, and seven names (those of the doubtful) in a
combination of roman and italic. In addition, newly-elected members'
names were distinguished with an asterisk. Here, the asterisk has been retained to indicate new members, and the designations 'Tory', 'Whig' and
'doubtful' have been employed for the sake of clarity in place of the printing distinctions of the original.
