"KIRK-CAMBECK, (or Kirkcambeck), an ancient parish in county Cumberland, now joined to Lanercost. It was given to the prior and convent of Carlisle, but was almost destroyed and ruined by the Scots. The living was a rectory rated in Pope Nicholas's valor at £8, but nothing in King Edward II.'s. The fabric of the church has long been in ruins. For the rites of baptism and sepulture, the people commonly repair to the church of Lanercost."
