Supplemental Notes:-
* 1 Walker (like F. W. S. Craig in his compilations of election results for Great Britain) classifies Tory candidates as Conservatives from 1832. The name Conservative was gradually adopted as a description for the Tories. The party is deemed to be named Conservative from the 1835 general election.
* 2 Smyth was classified by Walker as a Liberal. Stenton however describes him as "a moderate Conservative, in favour of free trade ...".
* 3 Walker (like F. W. S. Craig in his compilations of election results for Great Britain) classifies Whig, Radical and similar candidates as Liberals from 1832. The name Liberal was gradually adopted as a description for the Whigs and politicians allied with them, before the formal creation of the Liberal Party shortly after the 1859 general election.
* 4 Walker suggests J.J. Richardson (elected 1853), was a different person from Jonathan Richardson (elected as a Liberal in 1857 and as a Conservative in 1859). Stenton, whose entry for the MP is mostly based upon the 1862 edition of "Dod's Parliamentary Companion", states that Jonathan Richardson was "First returned for Lisburn Oct. 1853, and sat until he accepted Chiltern Hundreds Feb. 1863".
