[from Porter's Directory 1889]


IN the Sheading of the same name, is a parish about five miles long from north to south, and four miles broad from east to west, and situated on the main road from Peel to Ramsey, and has a station on the Manx Northern Railway. It is bounded on the east by Lezayre, on the south by German, on the west by the sea, and on the north by Ballaugh. A portion of the parish is mountainous and barren, but to the north and west are fertile and highly cultivated. The principal glens are Glenmoor, Glenwyllan, and Glentrunk. The parish church is dedicated to St. Michael and the Angels. The living is in the patronage of the Crown, and held by the Rev. Wm. Hawley. The most interesting place in this parish is the ecclesiastical palace at Bishop’s Court, adjoining which is the Diocesan College for training students for the service of the church. The Wesleyans have chapels at the village, Baragarrow, and Kerrowglass, and the Primitive Methodists at the village and Orrisdale. Population of the parish in 1881, 1214.
