logo The 'New' Manx Worthies

After much delay, the long anticipated "New Manx Worthies" gen ed Dollin Kelly was published in 2006 (Douglas:MNH ISBN 0-9547-180-4-6)- the following list is taken from the Index.

Unlike A.W.Moore's Manx Worthies the criterion of Manx birth was not insisted upon, though, like Moore, all those included had to be dead - initially the volume was to be restricted to those dying after Moore had published his work in 1903, but this too was relaxed to include some who were not treated by Moore. I have linked to any biographical sketch I had on ManxNoteBook though usually the NMW will provide a fuller sketch. One significant criticism of the New Worthies I can make is that all too often the actual reference to published material is very skimpy.
