My great grandfather was Francis N. SHIMMIN b. 1852 Douglas. It seems his father was JAMES SHIMMIN Chr:� 04 MAY 1822 or 3 or 5?� � Malew, who married JANE MC NEILS in 1844. Family legend has it that she was from Barra. James' father looks likely to have been ROBT SHIMMIN b. Castletown/ Malew (Christening:� 28 JAN 1796), who I believe married ANN KENNAGH or ANN KENNIAGH b.Douglas c1807. This Robert Shimmin's parents seem to be THOS SHIMIN b. c1771 (Christening:� 09 FEB 1772� Malew) who married Ann Halmes / Ann Holmes born 18 OCT 1793� � Malew.
