Subscriptions for the Defence of Whitehaven

A-F   G-P  R-Y

Interesting on this page is John Wordsworth, father of the famous poet William Wordsworth, who was Lowther's agent at Cockermouth. Also his brother Richard Wordsworth who was in charge of customs at Whitehaven, who's son, John was at sea in the Navy and became prize master of the Maria during the war later that year. Also notable is Francis Salomon, the jeweller and father of Robert Salmon who was to become one of the greatest marine painters in America. Capt. Younghusband may well be the same one who sank his ship the Betsy at Yorktown.
