Re: McCarrey- Craine Crayon
In Response To: Re: McCarrey- Craine Crayon ()

in the decade or more since this query was raised most of the parish registers are now available to view on familysearch with additional info including digitised newspapers on www.imuseum.im
Also I have looked more deeply at the Roman Catholic registers - eg Daniel McCarry noted as of Peel married Charlotte Boyd (noted as a convert and probably d/o Patrick Boyd fisherman) on 13 Feb 1842 possibly married in Peel tho there was no Catholic church there at that time - the two Catholic churches at that time were in Douglas and Castletown

The Manx McCarr(e)ys would appear to derive from James the illegitimate son of John McCarry + Isable Cowin - John was still in Castletown in 1804 as he is a witness at a marriage in Malew parish church between Edwd Carr + Mary Neil als Smith both noted as Irish - there is a small group of McCarry burials (inc a John in 1812) in Malew (parish containing Castletown) between 1806 and 1813 but the burial register gives no other info)
There is also a Margt McCarry who marries Thomas Quayle in Peel (Kk German parish church) in 1807 - there is also some possibility of confusion with the name McCarty which is also found on Island at this period
