Baptisms 1690-1850, Ramsey

The Baptisms are for Ramsey Chapel (Ballure) which was rebuilt in 1746 and was superceded by St Paul's from 1822; there was an earlier chapel but no separate records appear to exist. There is a gap in the records between 1756 to 1761, 1784 and 1804 would appear to also have missing records.

Baptisms - Ramsey Region

As it was possible that baptisms for Ramsey were recorded at the Parish Churches of Lezayre (North Ramsey) and Maughold (South Ramsey) the above figure shows the combined total - there is something amiss in period when Ballure Chapel records commence as the total number of baptisms almost doubles (? double counting ) , the dip in the 1760's appears due to missing records in Lezayre.
