The town of Stamford, Lincolnshire has been part of a variety of parliamentary constituencies down the years, as a result of boundary changes.

Stamfordian property owners who were eligible to vote - men who met the forty shillings requirement (Forty Shilling Freeholder Act) also had the franchise for the county MPs.

Those who owned property in other places might have had additional votes, as would graduates of the universities.
