Marylebone was a parliamentary constituency in Middlesex, England from 1832 to 1885. The parliamentary borough formed part of the built up area of London, and returned two members to the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. The constituency was created under the Reform Act 1832 and divided under the Redistribution of Seats Act, 1885 into eight single member divisions (see below for details).
The commissioners appointed to fix parliamentary boundaries recommended that the part of St Pancras parish north of the Regent's Canal should not form part of the constituency and should remain in the parliamentary county of Middlesex as this was still a largely rural area. The inhabitants of St. Pancras, however, petitioned parliament for the inclusion of the entire parish, and this was accepted.
In 1885 the parliamentary borough was split into eight new single-member divisions. These were Marylebone East, Marylebone West, Paddington North, Paddington South, St. Pancras East, St. Pancras North, St. Pancras South and St. Pancras West.
Members of Parliament
- 1 Election of Whalley in 1837 declared void on petition, as he could not prove his eligibility.
- 2 A peer of Ireland.
Turnout, in multi-member elections, is estimated by dividing the number of votes by two. To the extent that electors did not use both their votes, the figure given will be an underestimate.
Change is calculated for individual candidates, when a party had more than one candidate in an election or the previous one. When a party had only one candidate in an election and the previous one change is calculated for the party vote.
