  • Notes 
    • Thomas Lamplugh of Ribton, came from Yorkshire about 1630, bringing his nephew Thomas, then aged about 15. Young Thomas was educated at St Bees school (of which his uncle became a governor in 1642)
    • (Research):The history and antiquities of the counties of Westmorland and Cumberland, Volume 2 (Google eBook) Joseph Nicolson, Richard Burn, William Nicolson, Daniel Scott, Henry Hornyold-Strickland 1777.( p 106) "Ribton is the sixth and last township in this parish of Bridekirk.... In the 35 Hen 8., John Ribton held the manor of Ribton... Afterwards it was purchased by Thomas Lamplugh, who being born at Beverley in Yorkshire, came into this county in the late civil wars, whose son Richard Lamplugh esq sold the same to Sir James Lowther of Whitehaven...."

      Lamplugh History:
      Thomas Lamplugh came from Beverley during the Civil Wars and bought Ribton in the parish of Bridekirk. At the end of his life he was planning the building of a new Ribton Hall (close to Cockermouth) which was completed by his son Richard, a beautiful house in the then fashionable Wren style. Richard sold the estate to James Lowther.

      Part of his wealth may have come from his marriage to Grace, the sister of Richard Barwise of Ilekirk.

      Thomas Lamplugh of Ribton, came from Yorkshire about 1630, bringing his nephew Thomas, then aged about 15. Young Thomas was educated at St Bees school (of which his uncle became a governor in 1642) so it was understandable that the myth grew that he was the son of Thomas, not his nephew. That view might have been perpetuated by the Archbishop. It was not until after he ascended to the throne of York that Thomas began to proclaim his humble birthplace at Thwing. In 1688 he gave communion plate to Thwing church and some time after he became Archbishop he caused a memorial stone to be placed in the sanctuary of that church to his mother Ann Lamplugh who died in 1661.
