CROSBY ON EDEN, Cumberland

"This parish, as the name indicates, lies along the banks of the Eden, and is bounded on the other sides by Scaleby, Stanwix, and Irthington. It is divided into four townships, viz., High Crosby, Low Crosby, Brunstock, and Walby, whose united area is, according to the latest returns, 2,855 acres, which are assessed at £4,060. The only employment of the inhabitants, who number 593, is agriculture, for which the soil of the parish is generally well adapted."
