Braddan - BMD 1600-1850


All data has been derived from the transcriptions in the IGI derived from the official 1911 transcription - thus it is a transcription of a transcription of an earlier transcription !


Census Data

Based on various Church, Civil and, post 1821, Decennial Census data

Census - Braddan



Braddan - Baptisms 1626-1875

The register starts from 1626 - it would appear most Douglas baptisms were in the various chapels-of-ease.


Marriages - Braddan 1675-1875

The inexorable growth of Douglas is reflected here - the levelling off after 1780 reflects the licensing of St George's in Douglas for marriages, the older St Matthew's appeared to be shunned for this purpose.


Braddan Burials 1625-1850

Braddan New yard was opened in 1848 and is not included here; note the cholera of 1832 is small in comparison with 1837.
