Hi Gillian,
We've also met on GR.

I see  on one of your replies there is a reference to an Index of 'Appleby at Work' 1784 - 1905. Does any one know where to obtain a copy?

I have also had difficulty in accessing the 1851 Census for the Hilton and Brackenber area through Ancestry.co.uk. I have just posted a new message on this site about it as I have had a very frustrating time with Ancestry trying to get an explanation. Has any one had a successful answer?

I bought my copy of "Appleby at Work" from the Tourist Information Office in Appleby.

Hello All,

If someone's place of birth was given as Bongate in 1807, would this mean he was born in Appleby or in the parish of St Michael's which would include Hilton for example?

Thanks,

Gillian

The easy way to remember is that Appleby (St. Lawrence) is on the West bank of the Eden.  Bongate (where the castle bondsmen lived - St Michael) is on the East bank.  Today it's all Appleby.
