Preliminary and Cautionary Notes:

The Cumbria Database has been constructed with the use of genealogical programs. Presently, the database is contained in a program entitled "The Master Genealogist". Using that program, a descendency chart has been produced in HTML format, which appears in the : Strong of Carlisle Diocese, Cumberlandshire, HTML SPECULATIVE Descendency Chart. Researchers will please note all of the Preliminary and Cautionary Notes set out at the beginning of the Chart.

The following is a List of the Parishes of the Diocese of Carlisle, which happens to be nearly co-extensive with the English County of Cumberland. This presentation is from a List published in the 1987 Cumbria Family History Society's Directory of Members' Interests, and is presented here to assist the researcher in finding the various parishes mentioned in the Chart:
