Census - Onchan

The civil parish of Onchan included part of the rapidly growing North Douglas, boundary adjustments moved part of the parish to Douglas pre 1861 census, further boundary movements continued after that time. Many of those within the civil parish would have been baptised within Douglas.


Baptisms 1626-1875, Onchan

The register effectively starts from 1666 though there are a few fragments from the 1620's.


Marriages - Onchan 1700-1875



Burials - Onchan 1640-1850

Several epidemic peaks can be noted. The reason for the step function in Onchan burials around 1760 is still to be determined.
