My name is Norman Martin Killey and it is some years since I worked on my family. However we came from Kk Patrick/German/ Michael. My direct line is as follows:-William Killey born 1636 Kk Michael, died 1673, married Margaret ? Their son, Daniel (Donald/Danel) Killey born 1658, Kk Michael died 1716 married Mary Looney in 1679, and their second son, Philip, born 1691 in Peel, died 1763 married Ann Clucas died 1755.

Besides many letters sent to Australia I have small locks of hair from these, my great great grandparents, William and Isabella. The hair was cut about 1860 at the time of Williamís death.
William 1794 had a younger brother, James, born 1812 who was a sea captain sailing for John Gladstoneís company. I have a record of his ships and voyages and in January 1837 he sailed a tiny sloop across the Atlantic from Liverpool to Jamaica through storms which wrecked many ships. It was 31.8 feet long and weighed only 13.66 tons. Besides Captain James their were four other men including another Manxman, Thomas Lace who may have been rela...
