Maryport

I have just bought some books on Maryport and they are amazing to say the least one is    Maryport People and Trades in the 19-20 centuries lists two entire streets of families who they  were gives names and ages its packed with old photos the second one is called  Maryport the Town that refused to die  and once again lists families and loads of old photos if any one has an interest in Maryport and they want me to take a look I think the families are the ones that lived there all their lives

I actually wayched the eclipse in Maryport. A funeral was going on at the church at the time, and the passing bell was tolling. I thought that it was strangely appropriate in one way, but then i though how cross he/she must have been to have missed it, but what a tale to tell their children the mourners must have had.

Loved the place I have to say, where can I get these books by post

Hello Audrey,

I am looking for Fultons and Pooleys in Maryport and wondered if the book has come up with something!  Henry Fulton, my gt grandfather was a stonemason and they seem to be in the Nelson Street/Bells Place area.

I would be really grateful if you could let me know if you find anything.

Hi Audrey,

I'd love to know about any reference to Lowthers - potter/earthenware dealers not the "Sirs".

Some ended up in Maryport but they may not have been the respectable ones lol.

Many thanks for the info. on Pooley,  Audrey.  I will look at the CWGC Website and see if I can find anything on him.

My grandfather was from Maryport and his family had been there for donkey's years. The all seem to have been in mining. Is there any mention of the 'Penn' family in your books?

Thanks
