Work on this UK challenge
I posted first in the Tree house, and would like it cross posted in the requests for Genealogy Help:
I am requesting help, to understand and contribute birth information about a handful of Christian family individuals who were born-living late 16th Century on ISLE OF MAN.
This family had position, influence and power. and some historic individuals.
First reference point is William Christian-100, ( may be duplicated Christian-1893) birth Derbyhaven, Man. His son who is eldest & of interest is Ewan Christian-175 born Cumberland Eng, then 2 sisters of Ewan who are listed birth Lezayre Man, Then of particular interest is Katherine Christian-53 only listed as England. can anyone find Katherine birth possibilities? Her mother or at least William's wife at this time is Mabel Jane Curwen, that is what brings about the Cumberland site.Find anything about her birth, as a Christian, McChristian, Curwen, or even a misspelled Curwen.? Time frame like the sisters is generally the decade starting with Ewen 1579. Mother could have first name as well as last name mixed up also.
My take on the Birth date location for each of these Christian profiles is that quite a few guesses were brought over on the ged files. Birth location and Baptism may be quite separate locations. Really no specific sources I could see on the profiles for Birth.
I would love to have some Parish notations from somewhere anywhere in UK. I would definitely check Cumberland closely. On Man, when someone has entered Lazayre as location or none I would be inclined to estimate Milntown, Man which is not a parish but the residence area for family in that time period.
One other thought, Curwen individuals might have Catholic leanings Were Catholic parishes or records still in place? dont know much about Christians, although several served as judges and may have had a lot of Anglican pressure. rule setting. needing to keep certain image.
As said above, It looks like some random guessing. Look forward to some good input. and perspective.
