The registers for Arbory for this period are deficient so baptismal dates for children not known. There was a Thomas bp 27 Apr 1729 and Christian 16 Jan 1731 children of Philip and Jane Crellin, thus the elder Thomas probably bp 1727 with marriage c. 1726. Why they named two children Thomas is unknown - certainly somewhat unusual. There is a burial for a Thomas Cottier in Patrick on 8 Jul 1738.

Philip Cottier married Isable Corrin at Rushen on 15 April 1733. There is a burial (+ will) for Philip Cottier at Arbory 17 Nov 1740. There are baptismal records for Isabel (? Elizabeth) 24 Feb 1733/4 and Harry 9 Sep 1737; There are burial records for two Isable Cottier als Corrin in 1741 - it is likely that she was buried Rushen 21 Apr 1741 - will for Isabel (E1741-1) gives a detailed account.
