What is this parish in Cumberland?
« on: Wednesday 15 November 17 14:23 GMT (UK) »
Hi All,

Can anyone tell me what this parish is in Cumberland? It is from a will dated 1684.

To me it looks like:

Abbelandercost!

Thanks in advance

Yes - Lanercost Abbey, now known as Lanercost Priory.

Try Newton Arlosh. It would be better if you showed more of the document so that the formation of letters can be cross referenced

The original reads Abbelandercost, which must be Lanercost Abbey  :)

Heard of the Lannercost Chronicle, so that's where it is!

Absolutely 100 percent Abbelandercost which is the ancient name for Lanercost parish. Every letter is there exactly as spelt out. This form of the parish name continued in legal documents as Abbeylanercost into the 20th century.
