Members of Parliament

Notes:-
* a William Vesey Fitzgerald (MP for Ennis 1808-1812 and 1813-1818) appears to be the same person as William Vesey-Fitzgerald, the MP from 1831 to 1832, although the biographical article in Wikipedia does not confirm this. Walker includes all three terms as MP for Ennis in one index entry.
* b Stooks Smith classifies O'Brien as a Whig MP, but the Wikipedia biographical article suggests he was a Conservative MP (i.e. a Tory) in 1828-1831.
