Lonan - 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 - Lonan

The rapid growth is due to the development of the mining industry around Laxey.


Baptisms - Lonan 1722-1875

The register starts from 1722 - 1724 and 1732 appear questionable, in 1724 only the year is given, whilst in 1734 no Christian names are given (data still to be checked with original)


Marriages - Lonan 1700-1875

The missing entries are due to the absence of IGI batch information - see Andreas for explanation (still to be located).


Burials - Lonan 1700-1875

Several epidemic peaks can be noted.
