From the longer Wikipedia page , which has a fuller list of High Sheriffs:
Westmorland (sometimes spelled Westmoreland) in North West England no longer exists as a county, the original core of it having merged into the modern district of Eden within the county of Cumbria.
The traditional county of Westmorland, like neighbouring Lancashire, was itself a new creation during the Middle Ages. It seems to have been treated as part of Yorkshire in the 11th century, and the eventual boundaries represented a merger between an earlier entity called Westmorland, and the Barony of Kendal, which was apparently originally considered part of the Honor of Lancaster, though it did not become part of Lancashire. Kendal is also now part of Cumbria.
The high sheriffs of the period were:
- Thomas Clifford, 8th Baron de Clifford (Hereditary Sheriff 1422-1455) (killed 1455)
- John Clifford, 9th Baron de Clifford (Hereditary sheriff 1455-1461, attainted 1461)
- 1462–1473 Sir John Parr
- 1484–1485 Sir Richard Ratcliff Awarded for life but killed 1485.
- 1512 Henry Clifford C 131/97/16 (attainder revoked 1485, Hereditary sheriff 1485-1523)
