The beautiful county of Cumberland has been of great interest to us in researching our own family. Our ancestors come from the towns of Cockermouth and Whitehaven, as well as from the far north in the parish of Arthuret and from the southern reaches of the old county in Millom.
On the following pages are images of just a few of the places we have explored and some of the people, not necessarily all related, who were found along the way.
We have transcribed a large number of Cumbrian wills. To see if your ancestor was one of those testators, click here. (Opens in a new window)
