Hi Martin - I received your GEDCOM file.

Walton is next to Toxteth (both now parts of Liverpool) where there are many Manx street names. It seems to have been the first point of immigration from the island and supported a large Manx community (including people like Hall Caine the author) - some of whom, like my Great Grandfather Robert Killip, commuted between Liverpool and IOM. Robert owned a number of houses that he rented-out to Manx people and was one of the Victorian do-gooders who championed improving the conditions of the poorer members of society in the slums of Liverpool. His father William built many of the houses which he them rented-out. I often wonder if their records still exist as they would provide a good source of information - but I have not been able to find any trace yet - they (documents) were probable burnt!
