[Chapter 3 Manx Worthies, A.W.Moore, 1901]


The Legislature.

Under the heading of "The Legislature," we have placed some of those who distinguished themselves in the executive and legislative work of the island. With regard to the members of the House of Keys, it must be borne in mind that their legislative labours were only a very small part of their life-work, but it is, probably, in most cases at least, the part which chiefly entitles them to public recognition.

The Council.*

* Under the heading of " Law ,' will be found the names of lawyers who also did good service as members of the Council, but whose chief claim to distinction is their legal ability.

The first of the members of the Council, in order of date, of whom we have any record, is


The Keys.
