I am puzzled by an entry in the Spring 1919 West Dorset register. Robert Long is shown
in the parish of
Whitechurch Canonicorum, residing in the village of that name (the parish embraced
with the word "(Successive)" after his address. So far I have not managed to
find the significance of this.
According to http://www.electoralregisters.org.uk/codes.htm
Where someone had moved house during the last 12 months, the word "successive"
often appears followed by their previous address to show that each was of a sufficient
rateable value to qualify its occupier to vote.
