I'm not the expert here (Henry?), but the turn of the century was a period of change in the governing process, although the big change came in the 1830s with the first Reform Act. I will point you in the direction of the bibliography board, where a book called Reader's Guide to 19th Century English Literature is referenced. It is an excellent, concise and readable guide to life in England at this time and it answered many of my questions about money, government, military, etc. The section on government is very good and as clear a guide as you'll find to what has to have been one of the world's most confounding electoral systems.
