‘portions’ – single books like Genesis – or entire Old and New Testaments. The society appointed translators of various nationalities, Protestant churches and missions, and published and sold the results at cheap prices. 2 The BFBS issued its first translation, a Mohawk edition of the Gospel of John, in 1805; continued with British languages, as in 1819, with an edition in Manx for the Isle of Man; and expanded throughout the British Empire, initially among sailors. 3 By

political thing.’ At King William’s College, on the Isle of Man, David Carter remembered how ‘in the sixth form, we used to get the newspapers delivered and there was a reading room, and I’d just read them voraciously for news of what was going on elsewhere’.9 Contradictions between personal choices open to educated youth and the authoritarian restrictions associated with age, class, race and gender often made the sixth form a time in which individuals strove for more authentic models of selfhood. David’s appetite for current affairs reflected his intense dislike for the

, the Grand Lodge of England worked to standardise the organisation and ritual of female Orangeism across the different jurisdictions. English Orangewomen were conscious of their connection to Orange sisters in other parts of the world, and were aware of how the status of women within each Grand Lodge varied. So, in 1914, we find the Mona women’s lodge on the Isle of Man making a plea for women’s greater recognition and a Grand Lodge of their own ‘to be worked something on the likes of the Canadian Ladies’ Lodges’.322 Efforts to formalise relations between female

also recorded folklore from the Isle of Man. The Polichronicon was of particular use to historians of Chester – in the early seventeenth century David Rogers placed it second in his list of sources after Bradshaw’s life of St Werburgh – but it also had a wider application for local history. The importance of the Polichronicon was increased by its popularity. The Latin manuscript enjoyed an unusually wide distribution (over 120 manuscripts survive) and by 1387 it had been translated into English by John de Trevisa (1326–1412), the vicar of Berkeley, Glos., for his

. At the so-called ‘Revenge’ Parliament in September, Arundel was executed for treason, Warwick exiled for life to the Isle of Man, and an announcement made that Gloucester had ‘died’ in captivity at Calais. But if Richard thought that by such actions he could quiet the realm and bend it to his will, he was soon proved wrong. During the winter of 1397-98, the misgivings that his coup had bred among the

The Dunne Group also contributed, as a payment in kind, to the refurbishment of Lowry’s Tipperary home in Holy Cross which cost IR£395,000. Although Lowry has always maintained that all of these payments were for work done by Streamline, the money was lodged to personal accounts and it was not declared for tax purposes.

The result was that he was moved to Mooragh Camp on the Isle of Man.234 Other cases, for instance that of a man held since August 1940, because of his knowledge of technical matters and association with a German agent, and that of a refugee who had spread defeatist views in the factory in which he worked, also came up for periodic review, but they appear to have been among the seven unfortunates held for the duration of the war.235 It was not just suspected Pétainists and defeatists who fell foul of the British authorities.

In Sir Frank Newsam’s book on the Home Office (Newsam 1954), written when he was Permanent Secretary, Northern Ireland took up just over three pages. The Channel Islands and the Isle of Man combined took up five. Northern Ireland was a place apart. Newsam’s discussion consisted of a brief, formal overview concluding with a paragraph that begins to describe how the customary constitution operated and the kind of relations that were a feature of bureaucratic politics: Personal contacts which have been established

Certainly, in 1646 and 1648 he spent some time on the Isle of Man, where James, earl of Derby had retired, and was accepted into the gentry community there. He produced the first extensive topographical study of the island, in which he was assisted by John Greenhalgh, the earl’s appointee as governor of the island and himself a former royalist officer.
