[From Brown's Directory, 1881/2]


The parish of Arbory extends along the southern coast from Pooil Vash to Strandhall, and, after taking a circuit inland, follows the course of the Colby river to Cronk Fedjag, and across the mountain to the western boundary of Malew. It contains six square miles. It is part of the same district as Malew and possesses the same physical characteristics. In the north it is a highland region, and in the south it is a low, undulating plain. Its short coast line lies along the dangerous shores of Pooil Vash, and is low and flat, but rocky and exposed. It is an agricultural district, and contains a population (in 1871) of 1,353. The parish is a vicarage, and the incumbent is the Rev. C. T. Langton.
