[from Porter's Directory, 1889]


JURBY parish, in Sheading of Michael, forms the north western extremity of the island. It is bounded on the south by Ballaugh, on the east by Andreas and Lezayre, on the north and west by the sea ; and is about five miles long from east to west, and two miles broad from north to south. The land is level, and for the most part fertile and productive. The Church of St. Patrick occupies a delightful situation on an eminence about a quarter of a mile from Jurby point, and distant about eight miles from Ramsey. The living is a vicarage in the gift of the Bishop, and held by the Rev. J. Bellamy. The Wesleyans have two chapels, one at Jurby and the other at Sandy gate.
