STANWIX, Cumberland

STANWIX township comprises an area of 495 acres which are assessed to the poor at 5,530. Its name is highly suggestive whilst the surrounding villages were composed of clay dabins, a mode of building as we have already seen but recently discontinued, there was here on the banks of the Eden a town of small dwellings, Stanwic A.S. 'stone town', and therefore one of considerable consequence at an early period."
