James Corkill - Alice Cowell

Trying to find more on this family (My interest is on the parents and daughter Isabel)

James Corkill born about 1720
Alice Cowell or Cowle born 3 May 1719 Santan
*Isabel born Braddan 19 July 1747 (married Thomas Quine 1774 Braddan)
William born Braddan 19 Feb 1748
James born Braddan 17 Oct 1751
Robert born Braddan 23 July 1758
Mary born Braddan 23 July 1758

I had thought the family originated from Braddan but it now looks from the records below that Alice probably came from Santan.

The following information is from The Manx Notebook

Santan Confirmations:Bops [Bishops Court] 6 Apr 1737 Alice Cowle [bp 3 May 1719]

Santan Marriages 1690-1757 http://www.isle-of-man.com/manxnotebook/famhist/pregs/smma1690.htm
30 Sep 1746 CORKILL Jas, COWLE Alice;in braddan; eop 1911
(Meaning of this?, perhaps this means she was married in Braddan but it was also recorded in Santan register?)

IGI has: Christening 03 MAY 1719, Santan Alice Cowell
Father: Cowle, Mother: Isabel

2) ISABEL CORKILL (Married Thos Quine 17 Dec Braddan)

Some time ago when asking for information on daughter I asked for information on the name 'Mealey'
"Isabel Quine ny Mealey als Corkill to Conchan" (I have tried every research source without success on Mealey!)

This is from Onchan burials on this family:
Margt. daughter of Thomas Q. from Braddan buried. 14 Aug 1794
Isabella Quine from Braddan buried at Onchan 4 Jan 1813. The Braddan register confirms she is the right lady as it says "Isabel Quine ny Mealey als Corkill to Conchan".

Any new information anyone may have would be appreciated
