Re: Skillicorn's of Lonan
In Response To: Re: Skillicorn's of Lonan ()

Hello again,

The parents of these children were:
1. William James Skillicorn 1843: John Skillicorn and Margaret Kermode

2. Eleanor Skillicorn 1854: John Skillicorn and Ann Garrett

John Skillicorn (James Skillicorn - Ann Callow, Philip Skillicorn - Judith Killey, Philip Skillicorn - Mary Garrett ?) was baptized at Lonan, October 3, 1819. John Skillicorn of Ballagare, age 73, was buried at Lonan, June 19, 1893.

John Skillicorn, 23, miner, son of James Skillicorn, farmer, married first, at Lonan, May 20, 1843, Margaret Kermode, age 20, daughter of William Kermode, farmer. Margaret Kermode, daughter of William and Jane (Fargher) Kermode, was baptized at Lonan, January 19, 1823. She is probably the Margaret, wife of JAMES, Colby, who was buried at Lonan, November 19, 1849. This would have been shortly after the birth of her daughter Margaret Jane. Her age in the burial transcript should be 36, but is given as 30, which is perhaps also a copying error.

John Skillicorn, a miner, and a widower, son of James Skillicorn, miner, married second, at Lonan, December 14, 1851, Ann Garrett Kelly, daughter of Matthew Garrett, laborer. She was the widow of Patrick Kelly, whom she had married at Lonan, September 17, 1848. Ann Garratt, daughter of Matthew and Mary (Killip) Garrett, was baptized at Lonan, September 1, 1822. Ann Skillicorn, Laxey Glen, 37, was buried at Lonan, March 1, 1860.

John Skillicorn was a lead miner. He lived at Ballagare with his parents after the death of his first wife.

He later lived at Ballacosney. Two of John’s daughters, Sarah and Margaret Jane, were apparently raised by relatives.
