THE LANES Records suggest that William II divided land in town, particularly the Lanes, between local landowners. Later these properties were sub-divided into long, narrow tenements. This pattern of development is probably how the Lanes developed; excation has proved that some of the Lanes originated in the 11th or 12th century; Keays Lane, Hodgsons Court, Union Court and Elliots Lane all in existence by 14th century (Carlisle a frontier city p16); named Lanes running from Bank St to East Tower Street prior to redevelopment - Lowthian’s Lane, Packhorse Lane, Kings Arms Lane, Peascod’s Lane, Old Grapes Lane, Grapes Lane, Crown and Anchor Lane, Lion and Lamb Lane, Lewthwaites Lane, Old Bush Lane, Globe Lane, Union Court, Hodgson’s Court, Keay’s Lane, Law’s Lane, Sewell’s Lane, Bousfield’s Lane, Three Cannons Lane, Longcakes Lane

Public Library First stone laid 26.05.1892; opened 08.11.1893 at Tullie House; lending libray opened 04.2.1895; when the Tullie House complex opened it comprised a public library, museum and a school of art and to these were added science classes and facilities for technical instruction, then more or less in their infancy so far as Carlisle was concerned. An officer, Robert Bateman, primarily a librarian was appointed to act as librarian and curator. Bateman left in 1898 and was succeeded by Arhcibald Sparke also a librarian and he left in 1902. The chief officer succeeding Sparke was DR F.H.Newman and he was called Director of Technical Instruction and Principal of Tullie House. Mr Sparke’s deputy as librarian, Mr Hill, was promoted to the position of librarian; Mr Hill found his position shorn of reponsibility and quickly left and it was not considered necessary to appoint a librarian but a compromise was effected by giving the title of deputy librarian to Tom Grey, then aged 19,the library being nominally under the supervision of Dr Newman. Dr Newman was succeeded in 1904 by Mr McIntyre who served from 1904 - 1922. Upon his retirement Tom Grey took over as Librarian, retiring in 1949. Ken Smith succeeded him retiring in 1973. He was succeeded by Harry Hodgson who was in charge when Carlisle City Library became part of Cumbria County Library; moved to Globe Lane 1986; official opening 03.05.1986

Jackon Library Bokplate; a condition of the Jackson bequest to the new free public
library was the provision of a special and distinctive bookplate. This was in a letter
from the executors of William Jackson’s will to the Mayor and Corporation reported
to the Public Library and Museum Committee, 07.10.1891. The minutes of 2nd
September noted the chairman, Alderman R.S.Ferguson, as already
submitting designs. The initials on the Jackson bookplate are an interwined J.F.N..
standing for James Forbes Nixon, who was born at Wigton on 16th February 1845.
He attended St Bees School. He worked with the famous publishing house
of Routledge, whose founder George came from Brampton. He emblazoned many
historic houses in Cumberland and Westmorland, with C.J.Ferguson the Alderman’s
architect brother. Flags, seals, cyphers, brasses, all were within his compass, and he
excelled in bookplates, featuring in Egerton Castle’s book on English bookplates

LINTON TWEEDS Shaddon Mill; William Linton, from Hawick, came to Carlisle in 1912 [other sources say 1919] because it was famed for the skill of its handloom weavers; William Linton was introduced to ‘Coco’ Chanel and by 1926 London newspapers were reporting that Linton Tweeds were leading the way into all the top Paris fashion houses; when Linton dies in 1938 his daughter Agnes took over the business, then her cousin George Linton joined the firm, he too met Chanel and in 1963 took Leslie Walker to meet her; Leslie Walker bought the business and this in turn passed to his sons Keith and Bruce; there has never been a Chanel collection without Linton Tweeds; their present client list includes Armani, Dior, Yves Saint Laurent, Calvin Klein, Jaeger, Louis Feraud, Lacroix, Donna Karan, Jean Muir, Aquascutum, Bruce Oldfield, Liz Claiborne, Balmain [Scotsman Magazine 23.10.2004 pp10-13]
