"MORESBY, a parish in the ward of Allerdale-above-Derwent, county Cumberland, 2½ miles N.E. of Whitehaven, its post town. It is situated on the coast of the Irish Sea, and contains the townships of Moresby and Parton. It was the site of the Roman station Arbeia, where foundations of buildings, coins, &c., have been found. The substratum is very productive of coal, and freestone. The village is of small extent and chiefly agricultural. There is an iron foundry within the parish."

You can also perform a more selective search for
churches in the Moresby area
that are recorded in the GENUKI church database. This will also help
identify other churches in nearby townships and/or parishes. You also have the option to see the
of the churches marked on a map.
Ask for a calculation of the distance from Moresby to another place.
