|>||Links to Cumberland parish
descriptions, transcribed from Mannix and Whellan (1847), and Westmorland
parish descriptions, from Mannex & Co. (1851) are available in the Parish Index.
Cumberland parish descriptions are also available from
Bulmer (1901). The parish descriptions can also be reached via
the Cumberland Place-names Index.
My new website,
Images of Northumberland, is progressing well - why not visit?
Jollie's Guide, from 1811, contains descriptive passages of tours through Cumberland, lists of the principal inhabitants for the larger towns and villages. Also shipping working out of Cumberland ports (see Shipping, below).
Because the parish descriptions often refer to "the
4th Edward I", the fourth year of the reign of Edward I, for example, I've
included a list of the English and Scottish monarchs.
Index to articles, which have been transcribed from a variety of sources. These cover scandals, crime, leisure activities, travel, industry, geography, longer biographies, and other material.
Short Biographical sketches
of noteworthy (and infamous) sons and daughters of Cumbria.
Index of ballads and poems.
A bibliography, which gives
references to books referred to in the parish descriptions, and also to books which may be
useful to researchers into all things Cumbrian.
