"OUSBY, (or Ulfsby), a parish in the Leath ward, county Cumberland, 9 miles N.E. of Penrith, its post town. It is a small and straggling village, situated on a branch of the river Eden, under Cross-Fell, and near Maiden Way. It is said to have derived its name from Ulff, a Dane, who once held it. The parish, which is of large extent, comprises the hamlets of Ousbyshire, Bradley, Fell-Side, and the Row. From its elevated position among the hills, it is subject to great damage from the Helm Winds, which occur frequently from September to May, and do great injury to the corn."
