Manx Genealogy

In Response To: Re: STYLES/CLEATOR ()

to me the most intriguing question as why he came to the Island, Berks is not known for mining which was the major draw for immigration to the Island in the mid 1850s - it might be worthwhile to try and find him in the 1851 census (or ev the family name) - the name is fairly unusual and now you have an approximate date of birth and the name of his father.

It may be worthwhile, though probably somewhat of a long shot to see if he has any appearance in IoM papers (available via www.imusum.im)
