Kermott to Maud

Edward was born on the Isle of Man, in or near Douglas. He was Christened in Kirk Marown (Manx Gaelic for Marown Church). I would guess that he lived in or within 5 miles of Douglas. When Edward was 13 his father died and he went to live on the Kermott estate with his Uncle John. Edward had good handwriting and was employed by his Uncle to copy forms. Edward left the isle after failing to tip his hat to his Uncle (which made John angry). He went to London and eventaully went to work on a ship. He left his service to the Captain in New Brunswick, Canada and raised a family there.

See the Famliy Papers for more information.

I know that Edward had 9 children...
