Millom Parish, 1848


MILLOM (Holy Trinity), a parish, in the union of Bootle, Allerdale ward above Derwent, W. division of Cumberland; comprising the chapelries of Thwaites and Ulpha, and the townships of Birker with Austhwaite, Chapel-Sucken, and the Farm of Stainton; and containing 1,979 inhabitants, of whom 411 are in the township of Lower Millom, and 511 in that of Upper Millom, 12 miles (S.E. by S.) from Ravenglass. The parish is bounded on the west and south by the Irish Sea, and on the east by the river Duddon, which forms a bay, famous for cockles and muscles, and abounding with salmon and sand-eels. The mineral productions are limestone, slate, and iron and copper ore; the limestone is found in quantities sufficient to be worked with advantage. The Whitehaven and Furness railway runs through the parish, and crosses the Duddon sands by an embankment and timber viaduct. A market and a fair were granted in the reign of Henry III., but they have been long disused. The living is a discharged vicarage, valued in the king's books at £8. 5. 8., and in the patronage of the Crown, in right of the duchy of Lancaster; net income, £189; impropriator, the Earl of Lonsdale. The church, an ancient structure, contains a tablet to the memory of the Huddlestone family. At Thwaites and Ulpha are separate incumbencies. Here are the remains of Millom Castle, the ancient seat of the lords of Millom. In Upper Millom are several springs, called Holy wells, impregnated with purgative salt.
