Translation : Little Mannanan, the Son of the Sea ; or, a whole account of the Isle of Man ; explaining what the rent was on the Manx to Mannanan ; how Samt Patrick did drive him and his company away ; how Saint Patrick put Christianity in it ; and an account of the first Bishops who were in the Island. Also an account of the first King and his descendants ; an account of the Lords ; and how came the Island to the Family of Stanley. Printed in the year [the date is erased in the document]. It was probably printed by Christopher Briscoe in Douglas, and the date of printing is about 1778.
T'his is the only copy of the ' Traditionary Ballad' in existence, as far as is known. It is deposited on loan by the Librarian, who has it on trust from a friend abroad. See Train's Hist. i, p. 50, and Moore's Ballads, p. 6.
The Ballad seems to have been written early in the 16th century, for its author describes events that happened during his time, for instance the landing in the Island of Thomas, 2nd Earl of Derby, in the year 1504.

The tale is from the Irish Book of Fermoy, a Munster work, thought to be compiled before the 15th c. The chief figure in the tale is Manannan Mac Lir. There are references to his home at Cruitin na Cuan and Emain Ablach, which places Miss Dobbs thinks were in the Isle of Man. The first name ' implies a situation on the coast,' and the second 'was a residence of Hebridean princes as late as the 11th c.'
