Hi Liz,

My gr-gr-grandfather was Evan CORKILL who was born on the Isle of Man in 1827. He was the 2nd of 10 children born to John and Esther (CORKILL) CORKILL. They were married in the Lezayre Parish in 1822, and their first child was son, John CORKILL, b1825. Both sons married women from Cumberland, England, but they raised their children in Liverpool. Evan and Elizabeth (QUAYLE) CORKILL (sometimes CORKHILL) had 7 children but one son died at 10. I think his brother, John, and his wife, had about 8 children.

Evan and Elizabeth's oldest daughter was Mary Elizabeth CORKILL, b1860 in Liverpool, and she became my great-grandmother. After Elizabeth's death ~1871, all the surviving children went to live in Canada. Evan was a mariner and was always - out to sea.

There is a CORKILL List, and I have posted about my ancestors on several Lists for 7-8 yrs.
