    Smile Isle Of Man

    A lot of people from the Isle Of Man settled in Liverpool I have great grandparents who came here in the 1900s. They could speak Manx Gaelic the language was more common than it is today. Manx people's surnames have similar origins to the Irish surnames but with some peculiarities. The Gaelic Mac pre-fixes were dropped off over time but most surnames retain the "K" or "C" or "Q" sound from the "C" of the Mac:-

    Lots of Liverpool people have settled in the Isle of Man. Dougls has been said to be a suburb of Liverpool.

    Deprived of its unique dockland waters Liverpool
    becomes a Venice without canals, just another city, no
    longer of special interest to anyone, least of all the
    tourist. Would we visit a modernised Venice of filled in
    canals to view its modern museum describing
    how it once was?

    I know some of my family went over to live there. The Isle Of Man has always had links to Liverpool.
