Old Map of Cumberland including a town plan of Carlisle

Cumberland by John Speed c.1610

Cumberland, along with the other border counties has no hundreds[1]. Hills are shown in the South and North and most of the habitation is in the middle of the county. Speed has drawn Hadrian's Wall or "Pict's Wall" as he calls it right along the North and there is a lengthy description of this. The antiquities drawn are Roman altars that had been excavated in the area. The town plan of Carlisle, shows it as a small walled city in its early history.
