John Cottier - Isle of Man
« on: Thursday 05 June 14 14:24 BST (UK) »
John II (1762-1849) was married to Catherine Callow (1802-1887). His father John was married to Catherine Lace (I think). I'm trying to find older family genealogy. I am actually going to the Isle of Man this month to see what I can find. Any one have any info?

There is a Cottier family Isle of Man website - I presume there will be a contact page ?..good luck ..

http://www.cottier.org.uk/pages/famhis

" Under A.D. 1098, we find in the Chronicon Manniae, that "A battle was fought between the Manxmen at Santwat, and those of the North obtained the victory" - a quote from the site ...I presume the Vikings raided the Isle of Man ??....haven`t read it - just glanced ,but it looks a good interesting website

Both died Bride Isle of Man, photo of their headstone in Bride cemetery.

The Cottier line is that of BallaCottier (in Ballavaranaugh treen) - Wm Cottier in 1643 - Ballacottier is near coast southeast of Bride Parish church - you can trace back earlier (parish reg exists from 1694) using land records (lib vas, lib assed )  etc

The Cath Cottier als Callow is d/o Wm Callow + Cath Kelly (m 1787 orig Braddan but most of large family in Maughold from 1793 -  the Callow name is mostly associated with Maughold - see deed NSS Oct 1827 25 in which Wm + Cath sell some land to son in law John Cottier)
any thing with a Manx Connection
