Polterkened Location
« on: Monday 19 March 18 08:11 GMT (UK) »
I gather there was a place called Polterkened in ancient Cumberland. I gather it was in the Gilsland Barony. Can anyone tell me exactly where Polterkened was, please?
Cheers,

Searching on Google Books I found

 "Cumbric Stream names that later acquired English forms: Polterkened (Peglands Beck), Polternan (Castle Beck), Polkedith (Carling Gill) (Lanercost Cartulary nos. 1, 24)."

I hope this is a map that shows the Peglands Beck near Walton http://maps.nls.uk/view/101089354#zoom=4&lat=3220&lon=1999&layers=BT
