I am not sure if you can help me with my Kerruish's. My great grandfather was born 1952 IOM John William Kerruish. He was a stonemason and married aged 25 in Ulverston so don't know when he moved to the Lacashire district. His father was also John Kerruish and was a mariner. On JWKerrruish's marriage certificate (he married Alice Marshall) John Kerruish Snr was deceased. The date of this certificate was January 1877. That's all I know about my Isle of Man and Kerruish background before the immigrated to Australia in 1883. If there is a glimmer of a connection, I would be pleased to hear from you.
