Cumberland is one of the 39 traditional counties in England. 1974 Cumberland was combined with Westmorland and parts of Lancashire and Yorkshire to form the new county of Cumbria.
The administrative headquarters was in Carlisle and the County of Northumberland and County Durham bordered on the east, south Westmorland and Lancashire to the southwest.
Cumberland was administratively different from the other counties, which are subdivided into dog reds, divided into five wards: Allerdale above Derwent, Allerdale below Derwent, Cumberland, Eskdale and Leath.
The name of the county is also still used as a geographical designation and by various organizations and business uses such as The Cumberland News, The West Cumberland Times and Star or Cumberland Building Society.
The noble title of " Duke of Cumberland " was repeatedly given in English history to younger members of the royal family.
