This site has been developed following contact with people world-wide who share my interest in family history, and want to learn more about the place their ancestors called home. In these pages can be found descriptions of Cumberland parishes from a directory dated 1847, photographs from across the county, both modern and from bygone days, stories of Cumbrian life, maps, biographies of Cumbria's famous and infamous sons, and other material from various sources. Where I have quoted from another source (the directory for example), I have done so in the belief that it is out of copyright.

I'd like to include more old photographs of Cumbrian life, not only showing buildings and landscape, but also of people going about their daily lives. If you have any photographs of this nature, and would be willing to share them, contact me via the e-mail address given below.

The copyright of all photographs remains with the photographer. If anyone wants to use one of the images for any purpose whatsoever, they should contact me first at the address given below, and I will attempt to put you in touch with the copyright owner.
