[from Porter's Directory, 1889]


IN the Sheading of Glenfaba, comprises the town of Peel, and is bounded on the east by Braddan, on the south by Patrick and Marown, on the west by the sea, and on the north by Michael. It is about 4½ miles long from north to south, and 3½ miles in breadth from east to west. The Chapel-of-ease is at St. Johns, the junction of the Manx Northern Railway with that of the Isle of Man Railway. The village of St. Johns is the most interesting in the parish, if not in the island, for in its centre stands Tynwald Hill, where for centuries the Manxmen have gathered annually, on the 5th July, to hear the Governor, attended by the public officials, read the laws by which they are governed. The Wesleyans have chapels at St. Johns, Greeba, Lhergydhoo, and Laurel bank, and the Primitive Methodists at Port Town and Knocksharry.
