C = Conservative Party

 

L = Liberal Party. The party only adopted this title in 1868; for 1837 many referred to the MP’s in the party as Whigs though there were those who preferred to be called Liberals even in the 1830’s because the word ‘Whig’ was seen to have aristocratic conotations.

 

Ch = Chartists
