The reason our branch was told that the name was changed to Keighin was due to a land clerk's error
when land was put in the Keighin name(instead of Kaighin). It was told to my dad that David Byron?..
when the land clerk misspelled the name on the land deed....told the family that it would cost more to
correct the spelling than what it was worth.... So that was why the
spelling got changed here in
Kind of sorry excuse for our line of thinking.....

The information you have on the Nebraska Kaighins is all correct as far as it goes. My parents were William
Milton and Mildred Catherine (PRIVATE) Kaighin. I was born PRIVATE and was adopted on PRIVATE. I
will round up all the information you requested and get it to you. I need to check on some dates with a

You asked who John James married -- her name was Marie Trivier and her parents immigrated from
The Kaighins that we visited with are Edna Holder and Helen Kaighin. Helen has since passed away, but
Edna's son, Roger, is continuing the search. I believe he has traveled to IOM several times.
If you will send me your address, I will be happy to send you copies of all the letters and other information
we have. It is too much to email. In the meantime I will try to organize all pertinent data to forward to
you. I am so thrilled that someone is tracing the Kaighin line. My father always wanted to make a trip to
IOM but never made it. I wish he could see what you have -- he would be so tickled.

My Parents were married in 1964 at

it up! There are three (3) houses next to each (ie separated by one or two small fields) other which were
Only one of these houses is in the local government parish of Jurby the other two being in Ballaugh. The
house my parents live in is as I have said just on the Ballaugh side - however a previous vicar of Jurby
parish church called to see my parents and told them that for Church of England purposes their house is
listed as being in Jurby - the boundaries are not the same.
Regarding other place names I wonder if Ballamoar ; Sandygate and Curragh could actually refer to the
same place? All three terms are not necessarily very specific. Sandygate being a hamlet, Curragh a general
term referring to the wet land extending north from Ballaugh Curragh and Ballamoar being part of the
name of a number of properties. My great uncles lived on a small farm called Ballamoar Beg (about 20 acres
I think). I can remember going there when young. I don't think it had changed much all the years they had
lived there. My great uncle John and grandfather farmed in partnership. I well remember my great uncles
cutting the last field of cereal in the parish with an old binder (pulled by a tractor) because a small bridge
connected some fields and it would not have taken a combine harvester. That would have been in 1973 I
think. I believe there is a picture of this somewhere - my great uncle can be seen using the leavers on the
My Great Grandmother died in approx the late 1930's, I think before my father was born. I have seen the
grave but can not recall the actual date. She was buried in Jurby Churchyard as were my great uncles and
great aunt. My grandparents were buried in Ballaugh churchyard.
William Kaighan father to William John Kaighan, Gini and Martha Was my Great-Grandfather I have very
little info But would appreciate more
William Kaighan was my great-grandfather. I have asked my father if he can remember anything and the
only information he could remember was that he was originally married to a lady called Smythe? and later
married someone called Mary. (my great-grandmother) it seems that not very much is known about my
family ancestry other than that we originated in the Isle of Man.

Thank you Greg. My aunt Kathlyn (Kay), dad (Roland)'s sister, first mentioned you and your family research. I can't imagine the work necessary, but I can imagine the feeling when you get names of your ancestors, and theirs, and theirs, and theirs along with locations from around the world. In fact, I'm looking through old envelopes of stuff right now, and getting a glimpse into the past. House deeds, burial receipts, letters, and tons of pictures. Thoughts, memories and revelations. It's thought provoking and enlightening. I was just wondering if you're still compiling information. If so, I may have some missing names and dates for you. Let me know and I'll send them to you. And, thank you again for your thoughtful reply. It was timely and appreciated, especially from a family member. Little bits of him live on through us.
All the best,

Hi Greg and many thanks for the contact.
researched my ancestors many years ago and discovered that we originated from
the Isle of Mann as I believe all Kaighins do. My direct line goes to about
1700. As I come across new Kaighins I
log them onto my Excel list with so far over 768 names there. Quite by accident I discovered that only
one Kaighin came to

Thanks for your email, (09/01/09). I would be delighted to assist in any way I can and will willingly give my DNA to the project, but need to know how to proceed. Please advise. Please keep me informed on your work to date, and of any progress as I am intrigued by genealogical tracing. (Being of Manx descent, we probably have some Viking DNA). I look forward to hearing from you soon.
All the best Greg, (What's Aloha in Manx?)

My cousin Sally Sprung has previously given you some details regarding her side of the Kaighin family and, for
my sins, I am also from that side. I am the John she refers to in her outline of the family. My mother was
Mona Esther Kaighin sister of Sally’s grandfather William Clague Kaighin (born 21st February 1903). I attach a
file showing “my side” of the family. I trust the above is self explanatory but should you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact me.

Fran Gillam nee Kaighin
My maiden name was Kaighin. My Father used to talk of the name Kaighin being originally a Viking name such
as MacEachan meaning son of the horse lord. I am not sure of this having any substance but certainly the Isle of
Man was invaded by Norse people who settled on the island. My father's mother's name was Kerruish. The
family lived in Kirk Michael and my grandfather was a tailor.

people were more proud appears on his tombstone. In the book he talks of Mr. Philip Kaighin who had 2
unmarried children who ran a hardware and toy shop. He was a cooper by trade but believed in temperance and
was also a Wesleyan preacher. Do you know anything about this side of the Kaighin Family?

If you have any more direct way I might research this I would be grateful for any advice.
I have the ref from:
"The Descendants of Thomas Kaighin and Catherine Gawne.htm From "Shining by the Sea" - A history of Ramsey 1800-1914 by Constance Radcliffe: "…Thomas became the first coxswain of the Lifeboat "Two Sisters", a position later held (1883-90) by his eldest son, also Thomas." of 11 Quayles Court, Maughold" but I was wondering if there was any more info available.
Thank you very much

I am the Grandson of John James Kaighen who passed away about three years ago. He was buried at Lezayre Churchyard in the same ploy as his wife, my grandmother. He was Chairman of the Ramsey Town Commissioners and served as a member for many years. Both he and his father Garnet were founding members of the Ramsey Association of Buffs Club (RAOB). They had two Daughters Paulette Colquitt and Jacqueline Leece (both married names and remain married). They married Brian Colquitt and John Leece; they had three children and two children respectively. I assume you are not interested once they have lost the Kaighen name.
My great grandfather Garnett was also part of RNLI and I have possession of one of his original RNLI hats and also some of his mouth organs he used to play.
My grandfather John spent most of his early years in the army in the post WWII period. He was also a keen singer with his bother Neville. He played football for Ramsey AFC for many years. He was also an ambulance man until he was medically retired.

I did reply to your email earlier on but I cannot find it in 'sent items' so you either have nothing or three or four. If you haven't received one this is just to say thank you for your very interesting letter.
The problem with the farm of Kerrowglass is that there are three small farms each called by the same name. I knew that a Margaret Kaighin had married a John Cannell and had seven daughters and one son who died in infancy and I have followed up all seven daughters to a certain extent. The story goes that John Cannell disowned his eldest daughter, Jane which is why Margaret, the second daughter, came to inherit Kerrowglass.
My Charles Kaighin who married Margaret Cannell lived in a nearby farm at the time called Skerrisdale.
When I was young I used to stay at Kerrowglass at weekends when my great aunt Christian Kaighin lived there and I used to sleep in a bed called a half tester, which was a bit like a four poster and had lots of curtains around it.
At the moment I am busy packing everything away into the loft as I am getting the decorators in and having a new floor covering which means everything has to be cleared out of my living room but I will be in touch again sometime.

stuff about Christmastime and it's still fairly new to me. The Kaighins are
the only ancestors I've found who arrived in this country after 1800. By the
way, how do they get Carne from Kaighin? Do they drop Rs
