I found my connection to the Killips a short while ago while looking for someone else. I knew Esther Jane’s father’s name from her marriage certificate. I could not find her birth, however. Then I came across her birth in the Braddan Church records – right father, right age. I had been searching under her father’s name (Oswald), but she was illegitimate, so was registered as a Killip.
The remainder of her family I presumed from the records – trouble is that when you are looking in the 1700s there is little evidence to prove you are correct, unless you are lucky – as I expect you know. All the Manx church records are said to be on the IGI (on line at and there is an Ancestral file entry for my branch of the Killip family (somebody else had the worked out same family as I had – very reassuring) which goes back a bit further back in the Cross line.

On Thomas Killip, all I have is the Christening – on 18 Jan 1789 at Bradden Church, Douglas, Isle Of Man, from the parish records (which is, of course in the IGI but it is a Christening record not a birth).
