Upperby is first noted as a placename in about 1164 when it is called Hobrihtebi, by 1592  this has become Upperbye. The first element is a personal name Hubert added to which is by meaning a village or hamlet. 1610 Survey of the Soccage lands of Carlisle, [original in Howard of Naworth Archive, Durham Univerity, ref C49/1. See Northern History Vol XX, 1984] shows Uprightbye towne; Upperby Cooperative Society formed 22.08.1829. The Lancaster and Carlisle Railway which runs through the parish opened on 17.12.1846. The 1906 Directory describes Upperby as a’pretty village’. Upperby became a part of the city in November 1912. The 1924 Ordnance Survey map shows  little development in Upperby, the area retaining a rural feel, the centre of the village being around the cross roads of Lamb St/ Upperby Rd/St Ninians Rd.;there was significant council house building in the Upperby and Currock areas both pre and post WWII. After 1924 Henderson Rd, Holmes Av and Mount Pleasant Road are built [all council housing]; these streets first appearing on the electoral registers for 1928. Buchanan Road, again council housing, first appears in the electoral register in 1924, Sewell Rd [council housing] in 1926. Pre 1939 1268 council houses were built in Upperby and Currock; between 1939 – 1958 another 580 were built in Upperby and Currock. The 2002 population estimates show 5523 people living in Upperby Ward. In 2001 of the 2401 households in Upperby  908 households were local authority rented, 508 owned outright, 730 buying, 75 housing authority rented, 59 privately rented, 121 other
