  • Okręg wyborczy Appleby powstał w 1295 r. jako okręg miejski, który wysyłał do angielskiej, a później brytyjskiej, Izby Gmin dwóch deputowanych. Okręg obejmował miasto Appleby w hrabstwie Westmorland. W XVIII w. Appleby stało się tzw. „zgniłym okręgiem”, w którym o obsadzie mandatów w Izbie Gmin decydowali miejscowi landlordowie z rodzin Lowtherów i . Okręg został zniesiony w 1832 r. na mocy Great Reform Act. Ironią jest, że premierem rządu, który przeprowadził tę reformę był Charles Grey, 2. hrabia Grey, który kilka lat wcześniej, jako wicehrabia Howick, był deputowanym do Izby Gmin właśnie z okręgu Appleby. Innym premierem, który reprezentował ten okręg był William Pitt Młodszy.
