COWEN, HEYSHAM AND CO Currock near Botchergate. Partnership agreement of January 7th 1802 between John Heysham, John Richardson, John Dand, Jacob Cowen and Joseph Faulder ‘to become co-partners in the trade of cotton spinners or manufactuers of cotton twist’. An additional partner, Thomas Atkinson, joined in April. The agreement said that this ‘was to be carried out under the name of Jacob Cowen, Heysham and Co....and that Jacob Cowen should be employed as manager’. The new mill opened in January 1803. John Heysham withdrew in 1820 and Jacob Cowen went into partnership with his sons Robert and George under the name of R.and G.Cowen and Co. Jacob Cowen withdrew from the partnership in 1833 leaving his sons to run the Carlisle and Dalston mills. After some years the firm reverted to the name Jacob Cowen and Sons. By 1845 the Cowens had withdrawn from the Currock Mill and it was occupied by Messrs Lowthian and Parker. With partnership changes this had become Messrs Lowthian, Fairlie and Co by 1857. In 1872 this site was purchased by the Joint Station Committee for the enlargement of the Citadel Station [CN 20.02.2009 p32]

See also NORTH CUMBRIA ACUTE TRUST; RADIO ECHO (Hospital Radio); 15.11.1828 a letter appeared in the Carlisle Patriot addressed to the Mayor, whose attention was drawn to the necessity for a Public Infirmary in Carlisle and requesting him ‘to call a public meeting and be the immediate instrument of procuring for the poor citizens of Carlisle and neighbourhood one of the greatest benefits that Affluence has the power of conferring upon Poverty and Misery’; awaiting such a purpose was a legacy of 1,000 pounds from the late Thomas Parker of Warwick Hall. Public meeting to establish a hospital 27.11.1828 at which offers of another 800 pounds were made; foundation stone laid 01.10.1830; architect Richard Tattersall, contractors Messrs Robinson and Bennet of Preston; foundation stone laid ,by Sir J.R.Graham on 01.10.1830, a vase containing coins, papers etc was deposited in a cavity of the stone. During the Thursday night following this ceremony, the foundation stone was removed, and the urn containing the coins etc taken away. The stone was relaid by the workmen on 18.11.1830. Completed in November 1832 but patients not admitted until 03.08.1841 following a prolonged legal battle over the estimate; Dr Barnes was appointed Honorary Physician. Mary Matthews was appointed Matron on 25th August 1841 at the first Committee Meeting, her wages were 3 pounds per quarter. A nurse, Isabella Gibson, was also appointed at 7 shillings a week; W.B.Page appointed surgeon on 15.11.1841 and arrived early in January 1842. Prospective patients were seen on Wednesdays at 11am on the recommendation of subscribers. After examination by the Committee and the Medical Staff and much careful questioning by the Committee who made sure that each applicant was a suitable object of charity, they were admitted; Emergencies however could be admittted at any time; ether was first used to make people unconscious during operations sometime between 1842-5. a medical pupil volunteered to be the first ‘victim’, then the operation was successfully repeated on a young lady whose knee had to be ‘cupped’; expences were greater than income and in 1847 a Bazaar was organised and it raised 1,227 pounds and 12 shillings. In this year gas and pipped water were installed. In 1860 the number of inpatients rose to 416 and outpatients to 2,722 but the hospital was still in debt; remembering his stay in the hospital in 1860 Mr Irving of Kingstown recalled that there were two nurses, one upstairs and one downstairs. An old woman saw that all was well at night and often sat by the fire smoking a clay pipe; new west wing completed 1873 and new out patients department completed on the east of the central block; a large fund raising bazaar was organised in Autumn 1877 and it was opened by Queen Victoria’s daughter, Princess Louise. A ward was named in her honour. 1891 new building for the nursing staff erected over the out patients wing and was opened by Lady Muncaster in 1894; 24.09.1908 Princess Louise lays foundation stone of new wing, and she also opened another fund raising Bazaar which ran from the 24th to 26th September; opening of new wing on 28.10.1911 by Countess Lonsdale.Walls of children’s ward were decorated with Doulton tiles depicting nursery rhymes, the gift of Mrs Robinson of Green Lane, Dalston, a relative of Dr Henry Barnes. Under the Road Traffic Act 1929, the Infirmaries were to get more payment for road accidents. New out-patient department opened on 07.02.1929; new wards and new pathological laboratory opened on 31.07.1930 by Lord Howard of Penrith; In 1932 the hospital was busier than ever and about 1,300 pounds in debt. In 1944 4097 patients were admitted to the Infirmary. On 5th July 1948 voluntary hospitals were transferred to the new National Health Service and the last meeting of the Governors took place on July 18th 1948. new extension opened 1975 by Princess Anne; In 1981 the number of beds in use on the hospital were 445. in this year there were 11,760 in-patients and 70,150 out-patients. In 1841-42 the figures were respectively 76 and 305. In 1842 there were one Honorary Physician, one Honorary Surgeon and a House Surgeon. in 1982 there were 50 consultants and 40 junior medical staff and Specialists who paid regular visits. New hospital officially opened 16.06.2000 by Tony Blair
