Lineage—" Workington (says Camden) is now the seat of the ancient knightly family of the CURWENS, descended from Gospatric, Earl of Northumberland, who took that name by covenant from Culwen, a family of Galloway, the heir whereof they had married. They have a stately castlelike seat ; and from this family (increaseth vanity) I myself am descended by the mother’s side." To

GOSPATRIC, son of Orne, and great-grandson of Eldred, 2nd feudal Lord of Kendal, Alan, 2nd Lord of Allandale, his cousin-german, gave High Ireby, which remained vested in a younger branch of the Curwens, which terminated in female heirs. This Gospatric was the first of the family who was Lord of Workington, having exchanged with his cousin, William de Lancaster, the lordship of Middleton, in Westmoreland, for the lands of Lamplugh and Workington, in Cumberland. Gospatric had (with four younger sons Gilbert ; Adam ; Orme ; and Alexander) his successor,

THOMAS, called after the fashion of those times, son of Gospatric." To this Thomas, one Rowland, son of Ughtred son of Fergus, gave the lordship of Curwen, in Galloway He d. 7 Dec. 1152. To his 2nd son, Patric, he had given while his eldest son was living, the lordship of Culwen, in Galloway, and the said Patric assuming his surname there from, became

PATRIC DE CULWEN, ancestor of the great family of CURWEN.

SIR CHRISTOPHER DE CULWEN, of Workington, like his father, represented his native county in several parliaments he was sheriff of the same shire in the 2nd and 12th of HENRY VI. by the name of CULWEN, and in the 6th of the same reign by that of CURWEN, to which latter cognomen the family has ever since adhered. Sir Christopher’s great great-grandson,

SIR HENRY CURWEN, of Workington, had the honour of affording an asylum in his mansion-house to the Queen of Scotland, MARY STUART, when that princess sought the protection of England. Sir Henry, who represented Cumberland in parliament, in the 6th of EDWARD VI. and 1st ELIZABETH, was s. at his decease in the 35th of the latter reign, by his eldest son,

SIR NICHOLAS CURWEN, of Workington, M.P. for Cumberland, father of

SIR HENRY CURWEN, of Workington, M.P. for Cumberland in the 18th of JAMES I. His eldest son,

SIR PATRIC CURWEN, of Workington, M.P. for Cumberland, was created a Baronet in 1696, but d. issueless, in 1664, when the title became extinct, while the estates devolved upon his brother,

THOMAS CURWEN, Esq. of Workington, at whose decease, unm, 25th CHARLES II., the estates passed to his half-brother,

ELDRED CURWEN, Esq. of Workington, who d. the next year, and was s. by his son,

HENRY CURWEN, Esq. of Workington. He dying without issue, his branch of the family expired, when the estates and representation reverted to his cousin (the great-grand-son of Sir Henry Curwen (Mary Stuart’s host) by his 2nd wife, Jane Crosby),

ELDRED CURWEN, Esq., who thus became of Workington. Mr. Curwen served the office of sheriff for Cumberland in the 3rd of GEORGE II., and represented Cockermouth in parliament. He d. in the 18th year of the same reign, and was s. by his son,

HENRY CURWEN, Esq. of Workington, M.P. for Carlisle in 1762, and for Cumberland in 1768. Mr. Curwen m. the dan. of William Gale, Esq. of Whitehaven, and had an only dau. and heiress,

ISABELLA CURWEN, who in. JOHN CHRISTIAN, Esq of Ewanrigg Hall, and conveying to him the lands of the Curwens, he assumed, in 1790, their surname and arms, and thus became

JOHN - CHRISTIAN CURWEN, Esq. of Workington. Mr. Christian had been m. previously to Miss Taubman, of the Isle of Man, who left at her decease an only son, JOHN CHRISTIAN, Esq. of Ewanrigg Hall, one of the Dempsters of that island.
