Re: RONANS in Kirk Rushen
In Response To: RONANS in Kirk Rushen ()

Thomas Raunan/ronan m. Eleanor Christian at Malew 1776-06-16
three known children all bapt rushen
1777-01-01 John - no further trace on Island
1779-01-31 Thomas - married Ann Gawne + had considerable family in Rushen
1780-12-10 Margt who married Thomas Quilliam Mal 18060301 and had family in Santan

Thomas would appear to be buried Rus 1826-08-30 followed shortly afterwards by Eleanor Rus 1827-01-07

Of the large family of Ronans to Thomas (13 in all though a few died in infancy) there would appear to be 5 males William bp Rus 18241010 bur 1859 left a will - his fa Thomas would appear to be bur Rus 1858-08-24

There might be a comment in the Malew register re the proto thomas as he would appear not to be born on the Island (my guess is Irish) - by 1881 the family appears to have move to around Kentraugh though in 1851 they were at Ballahan in Rushen (just outside Port Erin) - I havn't found Thomas + Ann in the 1841 census though their son Wm would appear to be a farm servant with Ann's relations
