"BROMFIELD, a parish partly in the ward of Allerdale-below-Derwent, and partly in the ward of Cumberland, in the county of Cumberland, 5 miles to the W. of Wigton. The Carlisle and Maryport railway passes near the village. The parish, which is of great extent, (embracing an area of 14,644 acres), is situated on the coast of the Solway Frith, and includes the chapelries of Allonby and West Newton, and the townships of Longrigg-with-Mealrigg, Blencogo, and Dundraw; the two latter being in Cumberland ward.

The living is a vicarage* in the diocese of Carlisle, of the value of 270, in the patronage of the bishop of the diocese. The church, dedicated to St. Kentigern, was restored in 1862. It contains several old monuments. Here is a free grammar school founded in 1612 by Richard Osmotherley, the income of which, derived from endowments by the founder and subsequent benefactors, amounts to about 40 per annum. There are other charities of small value. Blencogo, in this parish, was the birthplace (1737) of Jonathan Boucher, antiquarian, and author of a Glossary of the English Language. Bromfield church has monuments to his father and mother, who are interred here. Some traces exist of Mungo Castle."
