UPPER DENTON, Cumberland

"Comprises a small district, bounded on the east by Northumberland, on the south-west by a detached part of Lanercost [Ed: Nether Denton], and on the west and north by the river Irthing. The manor belonged in the reign of Edward I. to one Richard Stonland, by whom it was conveyed to the Witheringtons, in which family it remained for several generations. The next possessors were the Tweedales; it was subsequently conveyed to the Howards, and is now [Ed: 1884] held by the Earl of Carlisle."
