A term applied to the Members of Parliament who sat for the County of Berkshire as opposed to those members representing boroughs or other places privileged to select their own MPs. In Berkshire there were two MPs for the Shire, two each for Windsor, Reading and Wallingford and one for Abingdon. The elections in the boroughs are not detailed in the poll book transcription on this site, although many residents of the above boroughs were entitled to vote for the Shire MPs and hence are listed.
