| CROSBY RAVENSWORTH, a parish in West ward, Westmoreland, 3½ miles from Appleby, and 275 from London; containing 151 houses and 789 inhabitants. A number of swine are bred in this parish, and the hams cured here, as well as in other parts of the country, are of a peculiarly fine flavour; yet there is nothing particular in their cure, except their being dryed over peat. In this parish are three good grammar schools. The church is a gothic building, with a square tower and three bells. The living is a vicarage, value 7
d. in the patronage of Mary viscountess Andover.
