During his visit to Man in 1774 Pennant seems to have made arrangements with the Vicars to supply him with a description of the features of their respective parishes. The account of the Rev. John Christian, Vicar of Kirk Marown from 1753 to 1780, was published by Mr. A. W. Moore, S.H.K., in Yn Lioar Manninagh, vol. ii, pp. 29-31. Only three of these accounts appear to have survived, namely that of Kirk Marown referred to above, and two which have not yet been printed.
