Re: Karran Line
In Response To: Re: Karran Line ()

Hi this message is specifically for Andy Flynn. I am the grand-daughter of Edith Eleanor (nee Karran). I know you mentioned that the Karrrans were a large family. My grandmother was the youngest of 11 children. There was Margaret, Louisa, Minnie Alice, Emily, Lilian Jane, Robert Edward, John, Charlie, Richard, George (who died aged 8 from meningitis) and finally there was Edith Eleanor Karran who was the youngest born in 1896. This family of Karrans father was Robert Edward Karran who married Margaret Ann Smith on 4th January 1872. Margaret would have only been 18 at the time according to my family. John Karran was shown as a witness. He was Robert Edward Karran's father. The marriage happened at St Georges Church in Douglas. I am wondering if this is the same Karran family that you mention. They lived in Onchan or Douglas. Look forward to hearing from you.
