Buried Braddan 3 Jan 1822 - it would appear to be this George Redfern who purchased the property on South Quay in 1788 and presuming from the lack of children to act as administrators it was he who married the widow Ann Wattleworth, als Moore, in 1803 (she died 1828, married Samuel Wattleworth 11 Aug 1789 at Malew), presumeably James Moore is her brother. The administrator is most likely William son of Ross Redfern.
