History, Gazetteer and Directory of Cumberland

£17.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

This history, gazetteer and directory comprising a general survey of the county and Diocese of Carlisle was originally published in 1847. It is the first major work of its type devoted exclusively to Cumberland. It was published at a time of great social change in England. The effects of the Industrial Revolution were starting to be felt and the dawn of a new Railway Age was beginning to reshape the county. This book is far more than a history, it is an important statistical record of all the communities both large and small, and is particularly relevant now that changes to the old county boundaries are taking place. It is an invaluable tool to both historian and genealogist alike.
