This site, and the Webmaster, cannot offer any direct help to those seeking information on ancestors, and neither can the Priory priest and his colleagues as all the registers, apart from the current ones, are held by the Records Office.

Local records can be found here (this is all the information held locally).

A few links which may be of help are listed below.

St Bees Registers

The old St Bees Parish Registers cover the period from 1538 to 1837 and are available as printed transcripts for baptisms, marriages and burials both at the office below and at St Bees Library.

An additional resource, covering a larger area is the Cumbria Archive Service

A recent addition you may not have seen but those on the forum recommend is the Cumbrian Manorial Records site –

Finally, the 1901 UK Census is available at Census Online

Happy hunting!
