ELLENBOROUGH AND EWANRIGG, a township in Dearham parish, Cumberland; on the coast, adjacent to the river Ellen, and to the Maryport and Carlisle railway, 1 mile SE of Maryport. Acres, 1, 224; of which 250 are water. Real property, £8, 028; of which £4, 944 are in mines. Pop., 1, 086. Houses, 213. An important Roman station was here; and a Roman road went from it to the station on the Wall at Carlisle. Altars, mirrors, inscriptions, substructions, and other Roman relics have been found. Ellenborough gives the title of Earl to the family of Law.
