Manx Marine Megafauna

Saturday 5 December
Dr Fenella Bazin and Ian Radcliffe
A Century of Change:  trades and occupations in the parish of Ballaugh in the nineteenth century
Was nineteenth-century Ballaugh typical of other Manx rural parishes?  How far was the parish self-sufficient?  While most occupations met everyday needs, a few specialised businesses developed, helping to sustain the economy which had suffered because of widespread emigration in the early 1800s.   Towards the end of the century the coming of the railway transformed the lives of most of the population, signalling the greatest change for many generations.  These are just a few of the stories of some of the people of the mountains and plains of this northern parish.
