[From Slater's Directory, 1846]


LEZAYRE (or CHRIST-LEZAYRE) parish is in the sheading of Ayre and northern division of the Isle ; it is of considerable extent, being seven miles in length from N. to S and five in breadth from E.to W. The parish church is situate two miles west from Ramsey, on the south side of the main road-the living is a vicarage, in the gift of the crown. The northern part of this district is composed of fine rich land, and presents some respectable mansions to the eye of the traveller; the rest is mountainous and sterile, the most southern portion being occupied by the lofty Snafield, the highest elevation in the island, overlooking the surrounding sea, and embracing within its horizon the slopes of the neighbouring countries.

SULBY, the only village worthy of notice in Lezayre Parish, consists of a few houses ranged on the side of the main road to Ramsey, four miles west of that town. Here is a chapel belonging to the establishment. Two fairs are annually held at this village; one takes place on the 4th June the other on the 23rd July
