    3. Saturday 15 Jun 1811 (p. 3, col. 3-5) In the afternoon of Saturday last, this city and its vicinity were again visited by a severe thunder storm.-At Blackwall, about two miles distant, the lightning struck an oak tree, the bark of which, for about half a foot in breadth, it tore off from the top to the bottom, at the same time splintering part of the timber. The inhabitants of some cottages, about 20 yards distant from the tree, were much alarmed, as the whole intervening ground appeared in one continued and vivid blaze; and the peals of thunder which succeeded the flashes literally shook the whole village. Yesterday arrived in this city, to join the 55th regiment, 43 more fine young men, volunteers from the Berwickshire, Dumfrieshire, and North Devon militias. On the morning of Tuesday, the body of Joseph DAVIDSON, a person employed in Mr. FERGUSON's manufactory, at Warwick-bridge, aged 63 years, was found in the dam that carries the machinery. It appears that he had never sank, as the hair on the upper part of his head was perfectly dry. From this circumstance, and his not having been missed for much more than half an hour, it is believed he was not quite dead when first discovered by two boys going to a blacksmith's shop.-The neighbourhood was immediately alarmed, but it is to be regretted that no means were used for restoring animation. The old man had been subject of late to a giddiness in his head, which may account for the accident. On Wednesday, a Coroner's inquest was held on the body.-Verdict, accidental death. An Association is formed at Cockermouth, with the laudable view of putting a stop to the abuse of the Lord's Day. MELANCHOLY ACCIDENT.-A few days ago, a poor woman at Ellenborough, near Maryport, who had gone up the waggon-way to gather coal, laid down her child, not seeing the loaden machine approaching; which, passing over the infant, crushed it to death. An unfortunate accident happened in the harbour of Whitehaven on Sunday evening. A child of the name of GOBSON, about 8 years of age, who was playing in a boat with his companions, fell into the river Derwent and was drowned, notwithstanding every assistance that could be afforded. CHARLTON, who was convicted at last Northumberland Assizes of a burglary at Kirkley Hall, and whose sentence of death was afterwards commuted to transportation for life; has confessed his guilt. On Saturday last, Edward ATHWARDY, mate of a sloop from Spalding, then lying at Sunderland, cut his throat in so dreadful a manner as nearly to sever his head from the body.-Verdict of Coroner's Inquest, Felo de se. The valuable living of Simonburn, in Northumberland, in the patronage of Greenwich Hospital, now dividing under the sanction of Parliament, will, upon the decease of the present incumbent, Dr. SCOTT, afford six rectories of 550l. each to that number of senior chaplains of the Royal Navy. Major-General HOUGHTON, who fell in the late battle near Badajoz, was the second son of the late Sir Henry HOUGHTON, Bart. of Houghton Tower and Walton Hall, in Lancashire, formerly Member of Parliament for Preston, and brother to the present Baronet. On Tuesday last, as the second battalion 82d foot were on their march from Tynemouth to Sunderland, four hundred embarked on board the large flat decked boat, near Clifford's Fort, to cross the Tyne. When near the middle of the river, the tide making, several small light ships began to come up the Narrows, one of which struck the starboard bow stanchion of the boat, and forced one of the planks near the bottom out. The hold began to fill. More ships were coming in. In the confusion, some men who could swim jumped into the river. Boats got alongside, but, too many getting into them, they sunk. However, in the end, some in boats, and the major part getting into ships, all were saved, though several ware bruised. Many firelocks, caps, hats, &c. were lost. The Lady Cremorne, BROWN, and Hawk, BUCHANAN, of Maryport, are arrived at Lisbon, all well. Notwithstanding the number of fine vessels which have been lately launched at Whitehaven, there are at present eleven others upon the stocks.

    3. Saturday 08 Jun 1811 (p. 2, col. 5 – p. 3, col. 1 + p. 3, col. 4) Our venerable sovereign entered into his 74th year on Tuesday last. The occasion was celebrated here in the usual manner. The Mayor, the other members of the Corporate Body, the Officers of the 55th Regt. viz. Capt. HOG, Lieut. NICHOLSON, Ensign WISHART; Staff-Col. GOSSELIN, Adj. MOSS, Dr. LOWRIE; Col. BIRKETT, and the Officers of the Loyal Carlisle Local Militia, and a respectable party of Gentlemen, met in the afternoon at the Bush Inn, where his Majesty's health, that of the Prince Regent, and various other loyal toasts, were drank.—The several mail coaches, decorated with flags, paraded the streets. The occasion was likewise celebrated in other places throughout the county—at Whitehaven, Maryport, Workington, &c.—At the latter place, the members of the Honourable Society of Workington, 164 in number, kept their 19th anniversary. In the forenoon, they went in procession to church, where an excellent and appropriate sermon was delivered by the Rev. Peter HOW, rector, from 1. Thess. v. 9.—They afterwards dined at the Assembly Room. J. C. CURWEN, Esq. and a number of other gentlemen honoured them their company [sic].—It is perhaps needless to add, that the evening was spent in appropriate festivity. Since our last, have arrived here 42 very fine volunteers, for the 55th regiment, from the Royal Cumberland and Westmorland Militias,—3 from the Royal Stafford, 1 from the North York, 1 from the Argyle, 3 from the Royal Perthshire, and 8 from the East York regiment of Militia,—making altogether 58 fine fellows. Another party, 44 in number, is soon expected, from the Dumfries and Berwickshire, and 3 from the North Devon, also 6 from the Aberdeenshire Militias. BENEFIT SOCIETIES.—We are happy to observe, that these Societies, which have been productive of so much moral and physical good to the middling and lower orders of society, have within these few years considerably increased their numbers, and consequently the quantity of benefit.—The several Societies in Carlisle held their annual festivals this week; and improved the occasion by a reciprocity of social affection, mutual good will, and temperate conviviality.—And on Tuesday last, the Bowness Friendly Society held their 16th anniversary meeting. A very appropriate sermon was preached to them on the occasion, by the Rev. Mr. WILSON, from Galatians, 31 chap. v. 13.—The Society afterwards dined at the King's Arms, and spent the day with an harmony agreeable to the occasion of their meeting. Among the other improvements of which our City is susceptible, a common sewer is not the least, and the want of which in the principal streets has been loudly complained of.—We have, however, the prospect of seeing such a convenience being speedily and generally adopted; as the proprietors of houses in Scotch-street, from the Scotch gate half way up the said street, have entered into an agreement equally to contribute toward the undertaking; and we have no doubt that all the other proprietors will enter into the same view. Two boys, named John DOWLEY and Wm. JACKSON, have been committed to our gaol, charged with stealing out of the dwelling house of Edward EDGAR, a bag containing 3s. 11d. in copper money:—also, Wm. POWELL, charged with stealing 1½lb. of butter from John WATSON, of Castle-Carrock. The Royal Westmorland Militia, under the command of Major SCOTT, now quartered at Weedon Royal, Northamptonshire, were reviewed on Wednesday, the 22d ultimo, by Major General DYOTT, commanding the Inland District, and who was pleased to pass the highest encomiums on the soldier like appearance and discipline of the regiment.—After which, the entire corps unanimously volunteered to serve in Ireland, or any other part of the United Kingdom, in which his Majesty's Government might think proper to employ them. Yesterday week, the Whitehaven Regiment of Local Militia were reviewed there by Major General the Earl of Dalhousie; who, in General Orders, expressed his approbation of the state of discipline to which the battalion had arrived, which conferred the highest credit upon both officers and privates.—At a meeting of the officers, on Saturday last, a piece of plate (of the value of not less than one hundred and twenty guineas) was unanimously voted to Lieut. Colonel HARTLEY, as a small token of personal esteem and gratitude for his great and unremitting attention to his corps, since their being first enrolled as Volunteers. The term of service expired on Sunday. Phænomenon.—On Friday evening the 31st ult. about six o'clock, after the tide had ebbed a few minutes, in the ordinary course, it flowed again into Whitehaven harbour, at the rate of from three to four knots an hour; rising a foot and a half perpendicular at the Old Quay end,—and instantly receding at the same rate. This irregular flux and reflux were repeated four or five times, and in the space of a few minutes, with such violence as to cause some vessels to break from their moorings.—The wind, at the time, was S.E. and blowing very moderately. Considerable quantities of remarkably fine herrings have been caught near the mouth of this harbour within these few days.—In general, they measure 15 inches in length, and 5 in girth; and weigh about a quarter of a pound each. In the night between Saturday and Sunday week, the corn mill, at Gisburne, in Craven, belonging to the Right Hon. Lord Ribblesdale, was destroyed by fire. A considerable quantity of grain was consumed; and we believe the insurance did not near approach the loss. A fine new vessel, of 224 tons, called the Wellington, was, yesterday, launched from Mr. COWAN's yard, Whitehaven. The Julius Cæsar, M. IVER, of Whitehaven, for Jamaica, passed Antigua on the 26th of April; all well. The Harriet, PEARSON, of Whitehaven, from Jamaica to London, having lost her rudder, was abandoned at sea. The crew was picked up by an American vessel, and landed at Cork. The Captain is since dead.

    3. Thanks, Nick, for your thoughts. I think I'll let the dust settle for a while. Most probably I shall just post to the Cumbria CFHS list (as well as the Cumbria Googlies list) after Rootsweb closes down. I note that my postings again today have not made it to the Rootsweb lists (nothing unusual - happens all the time).

    3. Hello all Petra, I agree that sending your transcriptions to multiple lists is unnecessary duplication and must be exhausting! Please send a message to all of the lists to which you post indicating to which list you'll be limiting your posts. Since the transcriptions can be viewed via the Cumbria FHS' website at <https://cumbriafhs.com/smfmsgbrd/index.php>, I would recommend choosing that. Although there are discussions about it behind the scenes, the future of this list has not yet been decided. When it has, I'll let you know. Until that time, please keep messages to this list on the topic of Westmorland family and local history. If anyone has questions or comments about the future of this list or any other posts of an administrative nature, please write to me privately off-list. With thank and best wishes, Lynne list owner

    3. Petra, I agree with your idea to consolidate Cumbria, Cumberland, and Westmorland into one mailing list Cumbria. Possibly if a query/response on the list only applies to only Westmorland or Cumberland, that can be highlighted in the Subject line with a possible hashtag #, e.g., #Westmorland or #Cumberland or other indicator.

    3. Saturday 01 Jun 1811 (p. 3, col. 2 + 4) The Lord Bishop of this Diocese will hold an Ordination at Rose Castle on the 7th July next. See Adv. As a proof of the mildness of the season, a hive of bees, in the garden of Capt. John SLUIT, of Workington, swarmed on Saturday last-being the first known to have cast this season, in Cumberland. Mr. James HARLING, of Kirkland, Kendal, has a crop of winter barley, at Little Lound, containing near three acres; one of the ears of which was shot on the 26th inst. and produced 84 corns, besides others that were not formed at the time. Additional tolls of one penny on carriages, and one half penny on horses, will be levied at all turnpikes on and after the 2d June inst. The valuable gold watch, snuff box, and pocket-book, which we mentioned in a former paper to have been missing, when the body of Mr. M'GREGOR was found in the Canal, near Preston, were discovered in a pillow, on Saturday last. This circumstance, we trust, will exculpate all who have been suspected of having robbed and murdered the unfortunate man. It is not, we believe, generally known, that by the last Militia Act it is provided, that the family of no militia man serving as a substitute, hired man, or volunteer, shall be entitled to the allowances; and that such allowances shall only extend to the wives and families of ballotted men. The Harriet of Whitehaven, from Jamaica to London, having lost her rudder, it is supposed has been abandoned at sea.

    3. Saturday 25 May 1811 (p. 3, col. 3) BIRTH. On the 17th curt. Mrs. EADIE, wife of Mr. John EADIE, teacher, Little Dowhill, Glasgow, was safely delivered of a son and two daughters, who, together with the mother, are likely to do well. She has had eight children at five accouchments, all now alive. MARRIED. The 20th inst. in this city, Mr. Thomas STRONG, to Miss Jane BELL. Same day, Mr. Henry BAILIFF, to Miss Mary HAYTON.

Wednesday week, at Durham, John ARMSTRONG, M. D. of Bishopwearmouth, to Miss SPEARMAN, daughter of Charles SPEARMAN, Esq. one of the Justices of the Peace for the County of Durham. On Thursday week, in London, Mr. JONES, of the India House, to Mrs. TOPPING, late of Carlisle. DIED. Thursday se'nnight, in Caldewgate, much respected, Mrs. HODSON, relict of the late Mr. George HODSON, who first established the cotton manufacture at Dalston.

Same day and place, Mr. Richard BROOKS. At her seat at Henbury, Dorset, the Countess of Stafford, widow of the late Earl, and since of Horace CHURCHILL, Esq. Friday week, a few days after his arrival in London from the Isle of France, Mr. John CLARKE, late surgeon of the Ceylon frigate, son of Mr. Robert CLARKE, Brigbank, near Wigton; a young man of the most promising abilities. On Saturday was buried at Portsmouth, with the most distinguished funeral honours, General RUFIN. This General bore a distinguished part in the hard-fought battle of Barrosa. He received a wound in the neck which paralysed his arms. He continued very cheerful, and seemed to suffer but little from his wound till about nine minutes before his death. After having ate a hearty dinner, he was suddenly seized with pain, which terminated in his death; it proved the wound had affected the spinal marrow. The deceased was a great favourite with BONAPARTE; he possessed upwards of 4,000l. per annum, landed property in the neighbourhood of Havre-de-Grace. He was a Member of the Legion of Honour, of a Saxon Order, and a Count of BONAPARTE's Empire. He was a stout man, and 39 years of age. After he was taken prisoner, he considered the treatment he received from our officers so kind and generous, that he represented it to Marshal VICTOR, who, in consequence, suffered a number of our wounded men to be taken off, which it was in his power to prevent. On Monday the 6th, Rear-Admiral GRAVES, of Penrice House, Cornwall. It is with the deepest regret that we announce the sudden death of the Right Honourable Robert BLAIR, Lord President of the Court of Session. His Lordship, we understand, was in his usual health on Monday at breakfast, and took his forenoon's walk in the Meadows, Edinburgh. On his return home, he was seized with the cramp in his stomach, which, unfortunately for his country, proved fatal in a few hours. On the 8th instant, at Tauloght, near Tralee, at the advanced age of 103, Lucius BOLTON, Esq. Lately, at the Isle of Man, Nelson SCOTT, M. D.

In the morning the flags of the seven guilds, or brotherhoods, were suspended from the guild-hall; and a large party of gentlemen partook of an elegant breakfast with Mr. Mayor. The whole party, after their entertainment, proceeded to Kingmoor, according to ancient custom, on horseback and in carriages, to witness the annual sports of horse-racing, &c. They were attended as far as the freelidge of the city by the standards of the respective trades and band of music, and in like manner on their return. Four horses started for the saddle, which was won by Mr. BOWMAN's, of Warwick-bridge. A cup was run for by asses, which afforded much amusement. Five donkies started, and the prize was won by Mr. John MARTINDALE's, of Sowerby Row. The whole afforded very much sport. J. C. CURWEN, Esq. M. P. entertained at the Pack Horse inn a number of select friends; with whom he after visited the guilds to pay his respects to his constituents, by whom he was received with much applause, and whom he addressed in a neat speech; wherein he professed his independence, that he was an enemy to the abuses and corruption which existed; was friendly to Parliamentary Reform; and trusted that the young freemen he then saw, would imitate the conduct of their fathers and espouse the cause of freedom and the independence of the city.-The afternoon was spent with that conviviality which always distinguishes this annual festival. On Tuesday, the Duke of Devonshire gave a sumptuous entertainment to the Gentlemen in the neighbourhood, and most of the principal inhabitants and others connected with his Grace; in honour of the Marquis of Hartington, his eldest son, having attained the age of 21 years.-Not less than 120 persons sat down to dinner at Mrs. IRVING's, the Crown and Mitre, and 37 at Mr. JOHNSTON's, the Lion and Lamb inn. The toasts were appropriate to the occasion; and the day was spent with that harmony and conviviality which the occasion demanded. A cause tried at our last assizes, wherein Doe on the demise of John STEWART was plaintiff, and G. SHEFFIELD defendant, came on to be agreed on Tuesday last, in the Court of King's Bench upon the special case reserved; when judgment was given for the defendant. We are happy to hear, that the venerable and highly respected Bishop of Landaff is much recovered from his indisposition; and that there is a prospect of his valuable life being yet serviceable to his country. [Richard WATSON, Bishop of Llandaff, and his wife Dorothy WILSON, were both born in Westmorland.] PEDESTRIANISM.-A person of the name of Thomas DRYDEN, a resident of Alston, in this county, started on the 18th October last, as foot-post, with parcels, &c. between that place and Penrith. He goes three times a week, and completed his 100th journey on Monday last,-having walked 4000 miles, or 40 miles a day. On Monday next commences the period for taking the population of the kingdom, according to an Act passed this session of Parliament. A greater degree of accuracy, we trust, will be observed than in the year 1801. The subscription in Whitehaven (mentioned in our last), for the relief of British Prisoners in France, amounts at present to upwards of 230l. Saturday last, a fine new ship, called the Prince Regent, was launched from the building yard of Messrs. William BOWES and Co. Whitehaven.-She is 134 tons, register admeasurement;-coppered, and pierced for 22 guns. The following is the number of vessels which have arrived at, and sailed from Whitehaven, from the commencement of the present year to the 19th inst. inclusive, viz. Arrived - - - 737 } Sailed - - - 711 } 1448.

    2. Petra Mitchinson
    3. Saturday 18 May 1811 (p. 3, col. 1) THUNDER STORM. The most tremendous Thunder Storm ever remembered in this neighbourhood, occurred here on the evening of Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday last, nearly at the same hour each day,-viz. a little before five, and accompanied with torrents of hail and rain, which deluged the streets, and rendered them, in some places, impassable. In consequence of these heavy rains, and some smart showers which had fallen on the Saturday; the rivers Eden and Caldew overflowed their banks to a great extent, forming a most romantic expanse of water. In Caldewgate, many of the houses were flooded. The thunder was extremely loud, and the electric fluid remarkably vivid and continued. We have not heard of any accident resulting from the storm in this city. It is our melancholy duty, however, to relate the following casualties in the neighbourhood:- About 10 o'clock on the morning of Sunday last, Ralph SMITH, a boy aged about 5 years, son of John SMITH, gardener in Warwick, and who had been playing with his companions on the western banks of the Eden, near the bridge at Warwick, stept into the water for the purpose of amusing himself with wading. Unfortunately, the river being considerably swoln, he was suddenly swept away. The neighbourhood was instantly alarmed; but from the turbid state of the water, all search for him was useless. The body had not been found so late as Thursday last. On the evening of the same day, a fine boy, between the age of three and four years, son to Peter FLEMING, of Cumrew, was drowned in his father's house. The sudden and terrible tempest of rain that had fallen upon Cardunnoth and the neighbouring mountains, descended with such impetuosity as to bear every thing before it. The boy's mother had left the house but a few minutes, to assist in preventing the impetuous flood from damaging the premises: in the interim, the torrent rushed in at the back door, and in a moment laid the floor under water to some depth. Another child, who was in bed, narrowly escaped. When the force of the water had burst open the front door, it discharged itself with such violence, as to sweep the furniture out of the kitchen into the farm-yard. On the same evening, two good cows, the property of Henry DRYDEN, of Cumwhitton, were struck dead in the cow-house by the lightning. The owner was in the place at the time, and for some moments deprived of sight by the vividness of the flash.-On Tuesday evening, a calf, belonging to Edward FISHER, of Piet-Hill, near Cumwhitton, was killed by the electric fluid. One of FISHER's legs was slightly scorched, and the hair of his wife's head a little singed. The storm (which appears to have been universal upon the banks of the Eden) commenced, about five o'clock on Tuesday evening, in the most tremendous manner, in and about the neighbourhood of Armathwaite. The extraordinary heavy fall of rain and hail, collected from the neighbourhood, formed a torrent that in its course swept away every resisting point with which it came in contact, till it reached the river Eden above the mill and bay at Armathwaite; and here it is surprising to see its effects. The quantity of rock, stone, and gravel, forced down by the weight of the torrent, has completely destroyed the mill-course, blocked up the salmon coops, and considerably choaked up the channel of the river. At Humphrey Close, it has done great injury to the road, and nearly swept the bridge away; whereby the road is rendered very dangerous to passengers. Immense injury has been done to individuals. A cotton twist-mill at Dalston, late the property of Mr. ROBINSON, was struck by the lightning, which, penetrating through two separate windows, (the panes of which, where it had entered, were perforated as by musket balls), committed some damage among the machinery. A flash of lightning also penetrated into a room of the Lord Nelson public-house, near Cummersdale, where several men were sitting. They were more or less stunned, but fortunately received no material injury. Another bolt entered another appartment, to which it did no other damage than melt the lead in which the glass of the window was enclosed.
