THE church and parish are dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary. The patronal fair was held on August 26th, (O.S. Aug. 15th) the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin, called in Manx, Laa'l Moirrey toshee, or 'Mary's chief feast-day.'

The parish of Ballaugh, or, as anciently called, Kirk Mary of Ballaugh, is bounded on the E. by Kirk Christ Lezayre, on the S. by Kirk Michael, on the W. by the sea, and on the N. by Jurby. In length from N. to S. it is about five miles, and from E. to W. about three miles. The area of Ballaugh is 6085.842 acres.

The modern village of Ballaugh is situated on the main road between Peel and Ramsey, but the old village nestles near the old parish church not far from the shore.

Part of the Bishop's Demesne is in Ballaugh, and the boundary of this parish and the parish of Kirk Michael passes through the Chapel of St. Nicholas at Bishop's Court.

Neither the Abbot of Rushen nor any of the other Barons of Mann, with the exception of the Bishop, held lands in this parish.

'Cain's farm' (Ir. Mac Cathdin). In 1515 we find William McCane involved in a suit against another tenant, but his holding is not set down. In 1643 Adam Caine held part of Glen Doo. Both of these were probably descendants of the original holder.

1231 Bull Pope Gregory IX Ballacure
1515 Man. Roll Balycurryn
1703 ,, Ballacurne
'Curry, McCurry or O'Curry's farm.' In 1515 the wife of Hugh McCurry had the Mill of Scrondall and also part of the treen of Ballacurn. The treen of Scron dall adjoins Ballacurn. McCurry and McCurghy were common Ballaugh names in the 16th century and probably long before. They are both derived from the Irish personal name Comhraidhe or O Comhraidhe. The development of the final n in the later forms of the place-name is due to the nasalization of the first vowel being thrown forward on to the second. Comhraidhe is pro-nounced Curry, with the vowel u strongly nasalized, which eventually became Curryn and Curn. Similar examples are found in the Manx language and also in Manx place-names, thus Cornama in Kirk Malew, now Cordeman; Ardona in Kirk Andreas, now Ardonan, etc. Documentary evidence shows that the Bishop's Demesne was enlarged at a very early date by taking in the treens of Brough Jiarg, Ballacurn and Ballafageen ; most of which later reverted to the king. Two quarterlands of Ballacurn are still an integral part of Bishop's Court, and probably small portions of Brough Jiarg and Balla-fageen (Kk. Michael).
