Notes: Terry was not included in the SMH list of selected National Federal candidates, but was listed as a Bartonite in the Australian Star 26 July. He was shown by the SMH as an Independent in the SMH list of elected MPs on 30 July, at one point was listed as a Ministerialist by the SMH, and at other elections generally contested as an Independent Free Trader. Given the conflict of sources, he has been listed as an Independent Federalist.
