In 1837 from the constituency of either Salford or Eccles (not sure whether they were one or separate constituency then) England near Manchester in Lancashire?

Thanks!

If you don't mind me asking, what are you studying/researching? I am very interested in this time period, area and topic

Thanks again for your help and for asking why!

I've writing a series of books on an Englishman who travels to India in 1836 to serve in the Bombay Artillery. He was born in Eccles in 1818 and receives mail from his parents and siblings that refers to the happens in that area. His father is not a fan of the MP - so I needed to know who he was. I must say he is perfect for this role I invented for him. A Radical and member of the Manchester and Salford Peace Society while the hero's father is a conservative former Colour Sergeant of the 52nd Regiment and veteran of the Peninsula War and Waterloo - political conflict ensured!
