Welcome to the Parish of Addingham, in Cumberland (now Cumbria).


My interest in the structure of Hunsonby Chapel, (initially part of the Penrith Wesleyan Methodist Circuit and later of the Kirkoswald Circuit) grew and grew until I became interested in the whole ecclesiastical parish of Addingham and its population.


While investigating the four townships, Hunsonby with Winskill, Gamblesby, Glassonby and Little Salkeld, from about 1800 until the start of the second world war, I trawled through all manner of archives produced by the Anglicans, the Methodists, the census, local government, criminal justice, the education and tax authorities, employers etc and produced a large database. The project then needed defining. I decided to investigate illegitimacy in the parish.
