Welcome to Mylrea Family History

If the name MYLREA is in your family tree, then this repository probably has something for you.

Its main content is a library of stories based on information from a variety of sources - Parish Records, Census Collections, Wills, Deeds, newspaper articles and of course, other websites, of which A Manx Note Book and Brian Lawson's BMD microsite hosted by the IOM Family History Society have been invaluable. The combination of these resources weave the rich tapestry that was the lives of our Mylrea forebears.

The other significant content on this site is the Index of Mylrea Wills and the Index of Mylrea Deeds, lists of the various legal documents with which the Mylreas have been involved, mainly in the 17th and 18th centuries on the Isle of Man - wills, marriage contracts, mortgages and sales - the majority with their transcriptions as well.

This site will never be static. As new material becomes available, I'll add it to the existing resources so check the UPDATES section periodically to see if there's anything of interest. You will probably have to use the REFRESH facility - I often find old versions popping up even though I've just uploaded new material.




On Some Lonely Shore: John Mylrea in Australia was recently published in the USA. It will soon be available for purchase.


If you have come to a brick wall in your Mylrea research (or just curious), think about joining the project. You are most welcome to contact me for more information.
