wick seems to have been a place of some note, with a
fortress, in Saxon times. It appears in Domesday Book
as a borough with 261 houses. Its castle made it an im-
portant place during the middle ages, but the fire of
1694 swept away the majority of the old houses, and the
town is mostly modern. Industrially Warwick is of
little importance, but it has a considerable trade in
cattle, corn, and provisions. The principal objects of
interest are the castle, seat of the Earl of AYarwick and
Brooke, one of the few real old baronial residences still
kept up and inhabited; St Mary’s Church, with the
Beauchamp chapel; the Earl of Leicester’s hospital for
aged brethren; and the 2 town gates, each surmounted
by an ancient chapel. Warwick returns 1 member to
Parliament; it returned 2 members from Edward I.
until 1885, when the pari, limits
were extended so as
to include the mun. bor. of Leamington and the local
government districts of Milverton and Lillington.—2.
Warwick, par. and vil., Cumberland, on river Eden,
near AYarwick Bridge, and 4 miles E. of Carlisle, 858
ac. (43 water), pop. 320.
