Source: Maitland Mercury, report of nominations, 11 December 1860, p.2 col.4-6, results showing 375 / 97, including booth details, 15 December p.2 col.3. Totals used here taken from the Empire, 14 December, p.4 col.5, sourcing results from Maitland Mercury, with same totals reported in SMH election summary, 29 December, p.5 col.5. The higher figure for Blake has been presumed to be correct and is presumably the source of the error in the Statistical Register.
Corrections: The Statistical Register reports 396 votes, which does not match the published results but is equal to the total votes of the winning candidate in several reports. The Statistical Register entry has been ignored.
