-^ > ♦ <■ 

Da. Kelly, Eector of Copford, near Colchester, and in the Com- 
mission of the Peace for Essex, was bom on the 1st of November, 1750, 
at Douglas, ■in the Isle of Man. Descended from a line of forefathers 
who had from time immemorial possessed a small freehold near that 
town, called Aalcaer, which devolved on the Doctor, he was placed 
under the tuition of the Eev. Philip Moore, Master of the Free Gram- 
mar School of Douglas. Mr. Kelly became speedily distinguished by 
quicltness of intellect, by his industry, and by the rapidicy of his 
classical progress. From the pupil he became the favourite and the 
companion of his instructor ; whose regard he appears particularly to 
have conciliated by his skill in the vernacular dialect of the Celtic tongue 
spoken in that Island. 

Ere his attainment of seventeen. Young Kelly attempted the diflQcult 
task of, reducing to writing the grammatical rules, and proceeded to 
compile, a Dictionary of the language. The obvious difficulties of such 
an undertaking to a school-boy, may be estimated by the consideration 
that this was the very first atj;empt to embody, to arrange, or to 
grammaticize this language ; — that it was made without any aid what- 
ever from books, M SS., or oral communications ; — but merely by dint 
of observation on the conversation of his unlettered countrymen. 

It happened at this moment that Dr. Hildesley, the then Bishop of 
Sodor and Man, had brought to maturity his benevolent plan of ^bestow- 
ino- on the natives of the Island a translation of the Holy Scriptures, of 
the Common Prayer Book, and of some religious tracts in their own 
tongue. His Lordship most gladly availed himself of the talents and 
attainments of the subject of this brief notice, and prevailed upon him 

to dedicate several years of hii? life to this favourite object. The 
Scriptures had been distributed in jDortions amongst the insular clergy 
for each to translate his part. On Mr. Kelly the serious charge was 
imposed of revising, correctiiig, and giving uniformity to these several 
translations of the Old Testament, and also that of conducting through 
the press the whole of these publications. In June, 1768, he entered 
on his duties. In April, 1770, he transmitted the first portion to 
Whitehaven, where the work was printed : — and when conveying the 
second, he was ship-wrecked, and narrowly escaped perishing. The 
manuscript with which he was charged was held up five hours above 
water, and was nearly the only article on board preserved. In the 
course of " his labours in the vineyard " he transcribed with his own 
hand all the books of the "Old Testament three several times. The 
whole impi'ession was completed under his guidance in December, 1772, 
soon after which the worthy Bishop died. 

In the year 1776, Mr. Kelly received an invitation from the Episcopal 
Congregation at Ayr, in North Britain, to become their Pastor. On 
this title he was ordained by the Bishop of Carlisle, before whom he 
preached the ordination sermon. Prom that time he continued to 
reside at Ayr, till the year 1779, when he was engaged by His Grace the 
Duke of Gordon as tutor to his Eon the Marquis of Huntley. The 
studies of this young nobleman Mr. Kelly continued to direct at Eton 
and Cambridge ; and afterwards accompanied Iiim on a tour to the 
continent. After his return, in the year 1791, by the interest of his 
noble patron, Mr Kelly obtained from the Chancellor the presentation 
to the Vicarage of Ardleigh, near Colchester, which preferment ho con- 
tinued to hold until 1807. Being presented by the Chancellor to the 
more valuable Eectory of Copford, in the same neighbourhood, he had 
the satisfaction of being enabled to resign his Vicarage in favour of his 
friend and brother-in-law the Eev. H, Bishop. 

Mr. Kelly was of St. John's College, Cambridge, where he obtained 
the degrees of LLB. in 1794, and LLD. in 1799. In 1803 he' cor- 
rected and sent to the press the grammatical notes on his native 
dialect. These were printed by Nichols and Son, with a neat dedication 
to the Doctor's former pupil, under the title of " A Practical Grammar 
of the antient Gaelic or language of the Isle of Mann, usually called 
Manks." In 1805 he issued proposals for printing a Triglot Dictionary 
of the Celtic tongue, as spoken in the Highlands of Scotland, in 
Ireland, and in the Isle of Man. Considerable pains were bestowed in 
bringing to completion this useful and curious work. It has been the 
misfortune of Celtic literature that those learned persons whose mother- 
tongue happens to have been one of these dialects, have usually treated 
it with neglect. But it has been its still greater misfortune to be 
overlaid and made ridiculous by the reveries of many whose " zeal" is 
utterly "without knowledge." Dr. Kelly furnished the rare and pro- 
bably solitary example of ,a competent skill in these three last survivincr 
dialects of the Celtic tongue. As his task advanced it was committed 
to the press. In 1808, sixty three sheets were printed, and the first part 
of the Dictionary, with the English turned into the three dialects was 
nearly or quite completed, when the fire at Messrs. Nichols reduced to 

ashes the whole impression. (See the account of this, Gent. Mag., vol 78, 
page 100.) The Doctor's MSS., and some of the corrected proofs, it 
is understood, remain with the family ; but whether the printing may 
ever be resumed is doubtful. 

The Doctor gave to the press an Assize Sermon, preached at Chelms- 
ford ; and a sermon for the benefit of a certain Charitable Institution, 
preached at the same place. The former was printed at the instance of 
the Chief Baron, the latter at the. earnest request of the Right Hon. 
Lord Woodhouse. 

In 1785, Dr. Kelly married Louisa, eldest daughter of the ingenious 
Mr. Peter DoUond, of St. Paul's Church- Yard. The Doctor prepared a 
brief memoir of his wife's grandfather, John Dollond, F.E.S., the- 
celebrated inventor of the achromatic telescope. The Doctor was seized 
with typhus fever in November, 1809, and after a short struggle expired 
on the 12th of that month. No man could be more sincerely regretted. 
To great acuteness of intellect, and sound and varied learning, was 
added a disposition, gentle, generous, and affectionate. His remains 
were accompanied to the grave by his parishioners in a body, and were 
interred, on the 17th of November, in his own Parish Church, when a 
discourse was delivered on the occasion by the Kev. J. G. Taylor of 
Dedham. Dr. Kelly left a widow, and an only son, who was a Fellow of 
St. John's College, Cambridge. 

la the Manx Sun oC July 24th, 1858, the following announcement appeared, which 
deserves to be transferred to this memoir, as a tribute to the memory of Dr. Kelly, 
and at the same time as commemorating a generous act of his surviving relative. 
"We have been informed that Mrs. Gordon Kelly, widow of the late Gordon 
William Kellr, Esq., Recorder of Colchester, only son of the well-known Dr. Kelly, a 
native of this Island has transmitted to the Venerable the Archdeacon of this Diocese, 
the sum of £1000, for the purpose of founding at our Insular College an Exhibition 
to the Universities from that Institution, open to all competitors ; and another sum 
of £100, the interest of which Mrs. Kelly wishes to be given annually as a Manx 
Prize. The Eev. Dr. Kelly was an old alumnus of the Douglas Grammar School, 
where he was a very favourite pupil of the Eev. Philip Moore ; and afterwards took 
a large share in the general revision of the translation of the Manx Scriptures." 


The Council of the Manx Society repose full conSdence in the jadgment of the 
Eev. Mr. Gill. As the authorised Translator of the Acts of Tynwald into Manx, he 

the Manx Society in his debt. And now with such coadjutors as Messrs. Clarke and 
Mosley, Mr. Gill's edition of Dr. Kelly's great work must command the confidence of 
all Manxmen, and be an abiding monument of the final stage of the fast disappearing 
dialect of the Celtic language, indigenous to the Isle of Man. The Council of 
the Manx Society congratulate their subscribers, and the inhabitants of the We of 
Man, npon the completion of this national work.

Baal, s. Baal, Apollo, the Sun. Baal, 
Beel, Bel, or Bol, a king of the Assyrians, 
son of Nimrod, and father of Ninus, was 
the first who applied himself to the study 
of astronomy, and being deified by his 




. subjects, was - the., first Apotheosis, and 
hence .called Baal, Dominus and Baal 
Sauin,' fpominns ccdL Diod.. Sic. I, 3. 
Thus the Assyrian or Phenician Baal, 
and the Apollo of the Greeks appear to 
be the same, and to mean the Sun; for 
the word Grian, the Celtic for Sun, is the 
Grynoeus Apollo: and as the different 
Plahets were held by the Greeks and 
, Romans, according to Cicero, to be the 
gods whose names they bear, so the Sun 
under the different appellations above- 
mentioned, was the God of the Assyrians, 
Phenicians, Samaritans, and Cartha- 
ginians, as well as of the Irish, Erse, 
Manks, and all the Celtic Tribes. Among 
the Greeks and Romans, however, Apollo 
was only a secondary deity; among the 
Celts Baal or the Sun was the great and 
perhaps their only God; while the Moon, 
the Queen of Heaven, under the name of 
Ashtaroth, or Astarte, was their only 
Goddess. Judg. x. 6. {Ir. Bal, Bel, 
Beel, Beal; lat. Apollo. 
Baal-satjin, s. the name of Baal; and 
signifies Lord of Heaven or the Sun. 
The first day of November was dedicated 
to bis worship, and is c&WeiLaa-Souiney, 
and the Season or Month yn Tauyn; be- 
cause anciently the first day of November 
was the first day of the year: and the 
Miummers on the eve of All-Saints' Day 
still begin their petition with these re- 
markable words, " To-night is New Year's 
night. Og-u-naa. The Moon shines 
fair and bright. Tro-Ia-la." On this 
night, in the words of Jeremiah, " the 
women knead their dough to make cakes 
to the Queen of Heaven," which is the 
Moon alluded to in the Mummer's peti- 
tion, called in Scripture, Ashtaroth: 
" They served Baalim and Ashtaroth." 
Much ceremony is observed in makino- 
this cake, which is sacred to love, (for the 
Syrian Astarte is supposed to be the 
Greek Venus,) and is called the " soddag 
valloo',' or dumb cake. Every woman is 
obliged to assist in mixing the ingredients, 
kneading the dough and baking the cake 
on glowing embers; and when sufiBciently 
baked they divide it, eat it up, and re- 
tire to their beds backwards without 
speaking a word, from which silence the 
cake derives its name, and in the course 
of the night expect to see the images of 
the men who are destined to be their 
husbands. This eve is called " oie 
Baaltinn, pronounced Boltinn, the name 
of a district in the Parish of Kirk Brad- 
dan. It consists of a projection of the 
mountain Carraghan, the sides whereof 

are inclosed by two rivers, wfiicb meet at 
a place called the ^aA-moii or Do'gs'-ford. 
[2. Qu, now Ballamoddey? Ed.] This 
river is afterwards called White river, and 
falls into another called the Black river; 
below the junction of which is the town 
of Douglass, deriving its name from the 
union of the Doo (black) and the Glass 
(grey) rivers. In the centre of Baaltinn 
is a small village called Aal-caer or 
Baal's town. Adjoining to Aal-caer are 
the ruins of an old Temple, called Kil 
Amman (^Cella Ammonis). [About 
18 X 12 feet. On the site of these ruins 
the Chapel of St. Luke was built, a.d. 
1836. Ed.] Near to this was an ancient 
Tynwald or Tinn-Vaal, i.e., the altar or 
fire of Baal, where all new Laws were 
promulged, and the seats of the 24 Keys 
or Parliament of the Island are still 
pointed out. Here was a pillar with an 
inscription, as I have been oftep told, but 
it was carried ofi' and broken to mend a 
neighbouring stone wall. This Tinn 
Vaal was coeval with another on Cronc- 
urley, in the north side o|,the Island; as 
at that itime'tlieXlslandJwas under two 
Governments," and the ' distinctions of 
North-side and South-side sliirremain. 
But when Man came to-be under one 
Government, the present Tinn Vaal, or 
Tennual, or Tynwald, as being- more 
central, was erected, and the Chapel (dedi- 
cated to St. John the Baptist, on whose 
festival the Tinn-Vaal; annuaUy 
held), was appropriated to the reli- 
gious services which the . meetings at 
Iinn-vaal might require. ' A fair was 
however, held at the ^ old Tinn-Vaal in 
Baal-tinn, until lately. There- is an 
opmion m this part of the country that 
the church commonly called Kil Ammon 

AW l.^^u^^T"^ ^'' ^l^ban, or the 
Abbott's Church ; and that it was either 
built at the mtroduction of Christianity 
mto the Island, on the ruins of Baal's 
temple or that the Pagan ICl Ammon 
was then converted into the Christian 
Kil Abban. It is certain, however, that 
at a very early period the village of 
Aalcaer received the name of Balla 
Chroest, Christ's town; but has S

The adjoining town or balla is called 
Baal-ny-moddey, the town 6f Dogs ; 
and higher up the valley another town is 
called Aah Whualhan or the whelp's 
ford. I mention these names, as the 
modem believers in the God Belus are of 
opinion that these dogs in their respective 
stations were the guards of the sacred 
Tinn-vaal, Baal-tinn, or fire of Baal. 
On St. Stephen's day the inhabitants of 
this district assemble to hunt the little 
Wren, which, when caught and killed, 
they fasten to the top of a long pole and 
carry about in procession, with drums 
beating, and colours flying, and distribute 
for money the feathers of the bird, which 
are esteemed by the purchasers to be a 
charm against, all ■ evils - for the ensuing 
year. So far is common with the practice 
of other parts of the Island ; Dut.inBaal- 
tinn the body . of the naked Wren is 
deposited with much solemnity in Kil 
Ammon, and the evening concludes with 
a variety of games on the open ground 
which adjoins. While some think this 
to be an emblem of the change from 
human sacrifices to those of beasts in the 
offerings of Baal, others think, with 
apparently more reason, that it is a 
superstitious memorial of the death of 
the saint. It may be right in this place 
to explain the reason why Baal-tinn and 
Tinn Vaal are supposed to be the same 
word, and to mean the same thing. 
Bealtuinne is of Irish origin, and Tinn- 
vaal of Manks, as being peculiar to the 
Isle of Man ; for whenever or generally 
when two substantives are put in appo- 
sition, the Irish place that word first, 
which the' Manks put last, as Irish 
ailtcheangal is in Manks kianghy-olt, 
buidhemhios is mee-vuigh, July, Ihong- 
phor t, a haxbouT, purt-lhong or Ihuingys. Ir. 
saix-vheurla, baarl-sausinagh. M'Cuirtin 
also, author of the Irish Dictionary 
eyLflains Bealtuinne by Teinne Bheil, and 
by Teinne Bheluis. But should Tinn 
veal and Baal tinn be the same, and 
both signify Baal's altar and fire, and the 
court where new laws were promulged, 
there wiU be a diflSculty in accounting 
for the Icelandic, " Althing, or common 
court of justice, which is kept every year 
on the 8th of July, at Thing-Valla." * 
!For though the Icelandic names and their 
uses resemble those of the Celtic; yet we 
cannot think them of Celtic origin. Here, 
then, is a field of curious inquiry for the 
learned antiquarian. (/r. Bealtuinne; 
lat. Appollinis ignis, for teinn or teinney 

* Von TroU's Letters on Iceland, p. 72. 

fire, is eign or eigney without the t, which 
is added because of the word beginning 
with a vowel ; therefore ignis is of the 
same Celtic origin. 

Baaltinn (laa), s. May-day, or the day 
of Baal's fire, or of the Sun, from tinn 
celestial fire, and Baal the god Baal, or 
the Sun. On this day [the eve of this 
day. — Ed.] the inhabitants kindle fires 
on the summits of the highest hills, in 
continuation of the practice of the Druids, 
who made the cattle, and probably " the 
children, to pass through the fire," using 
certain ceremonies to expiate the sins of 
the people ; but the modern practice is, 
for each balla or town to kindle a fire, so 
that the wind may drive the smoke over 
their corn fields, cattle and habitations. 
Which custom, independent of the reli- 
gious use, might have a temporal benefit 
also in view, by killing the insects which 
infest the trees and corn at that season. 
It is also the usage to put out the 
culinary fires on that day, and to rekindle 
them with some of the sacred fire. On this 
day, likewise, the young people of different 
districts form themselves into two parties, 
called the Summer and the Winter ( Sourey 
as Geurey), and having appointed a place 
of meeting, a mock engagement takes 
place, when the winter party gradually 
recedes before the summer, and at last 
quits the field. There is an appropriate 
song, the burden of which is. Hug eh my 
fainey ; sourey Ihien, Sfc. [' ' He gave my 
ring ; summer with us," Sec. I can make 
no sense of this. — Ed.] On this day, 
and also on Laa Souney (the first of 
November), malefactors were punished 
with death by fire, and human sacrifices 
were offered to Baal ; which, however, 
both at Carthage and in Ireland, accord- 
ing to the ancient historians, were laid 
aside, and the sacrifice of beasts substi- 
tuted in their stead. Val. Gr. 1 24. On 
May-eve, the inhabitants dress their 
houses with flowers, and before every 
door a considerable space is strewed with 
primroses ; and crosses are made of 
mountain-ash (caorin), which are fastened 
to their cattle and worn by themselves as 
preservatives against witchcraft. On this 
eve also the damsel places a snail between . 
two pewter dishes, and expects to find 
next morning the name of her future 
husband in visible characters on the dish ; 
but the success of this depends on her 
watching until midnight, and having first 
purified her hands and face by washing 
them in the dew of wheat. 

BAAiAN, s. the plant (?) a fillet, 

iv chaplet. This plant is gathered on 




Midsummer-eve, and made into chaplets, 
or circles, which are worn on the head of 
man and beast, to preserve them against 
witchcraft and evil. The word is literally 
Baal's chaplet, from an the circle or ring, 
and Baal of Baal ; in commemoration of 
Baal or the Sun, the god of the Celts, 
having completed his circle or coarse. 
When I say in commemoration of Baal, 
I do not mean to say that the people 
have any traditional memory of Baal, or 
consciousness of celebrating, in this and 
the preceding articles, any religious cere- 
mony to him. These acts arise from 
immemorial usage, without any know- 
ledge of their origin annexed to them; 
but the most ancient Irish histoiuans, and 
many learned Celtic scholars, believe and 
maintain that the ceremonies alluded to 
are the remains of the heathen worthip 
paid by the Druids and the Celtic nations 
to their god Baal. Ir. mallan, or malan ; 
W. banal, broom. 

Baalan-feail-oin, s. the chaplet made of the

of its medicinal properties. — Ed.]

fire, ether, pure elementary fire, not that 
culinary fire which we call aile, or that 
which appears in ignited bodies. This 
is that TIEN or tiennet which our an- 
cestors worshipped, not ultimately or for 
itself, but relatively to the Supreme 
Being, for they supposed Gon to be pre- 
sent in the fire; though the practice of 
men might, in length of time, degenerate 
from the original institution and rest in 
the object of sense, and, like Cain, intro- 
duce the worship of the sun, as the best 
resemblance he could find of the gloiy of 
the Lord, who was wont to appear in a 
fiaming light. A notion of something 
divine in fire prevailed in the most dis- 
tant times and places, even among the 
Chinese, who make Tien, ether or hear 
ven, the sovereign cause of all things, 
and adore it under the name ot Tien. 
The Greeks and all the Eastern nations 
consider the sun as the spirit of the 
world. The Eomans had their Vesta, 
the Egyptians their Vulcan, and our 
Celtic grandsires their Baal or Bel- ghin 
or Tien. {Cor. Arm. and W. tan, an-

Gaelok, *. gen. gailget. The language 
spoken by the inhabitants of the Isle of 
Man, and called Manks, Mankish, or 
Manx. It is radically the same as the 
Irish or as the Erse or Gaelic, which is 
spoken in the Highlands of Scotland. As 
this point is sometimes doubted, and it 
is frequently denied that the Highland 
language or Erse, which is a corruption 
of the wurd Irish, and the Irish Gaelic 
are the same, X shall mention the follow- 
ing fact. When the Rev. Philip Moore 
and myself were engaged in preparing the 
Manks translation of the Holy Scriptures 
for the press, the Kev. — Mc Laggan, 
chaplain to his Majesty's 42nd Regiment 
of Highlanders, frequently visited us and 
often assisted us in the recovery or the 
application of obsolete words, and assured 
US that he made use of no other Bible in 
his regiment but the Irish Bible, which 
had published by Bishop Bedell, 
from whence I conclude that these three 
languages are the same, though I must 
observe that the Manks tongue is more 
corrupt than theirs, having a mixture of 
Danish and English words, in conse- 
quence of this island having been so long 
under the government of Norway; and 
also of Greek and Latin words, from the 
island being for many ages the seat of 
learning, where the royal family of Scot- 
land regularly received their education, 
particularly while it was under the domi- 
nion of that kingdom. But, while I 
thiiik these languages to be the same, I 
must declare that I can find no resem- 
.blance between the Welsh and the 
Manks, and I can hardly believe that the 
Erse is a dialect oi that language, but 
that they are originally different. It is 
certain that there is a great resemblance 
in the inflection by a change of the 
initials, which is a strong presumption 
of their being branches of one original 
stock. There are also many words alike 
in both ; but then those words can be 




proved to have been borrowed from, or 
used b/, some third people; as the word, 
tarroo, a bull; Irish, tarbh; W., tarw ; 
from the Lac, taurus. Turin, hell; Ir. 
ifrionn; W., uffern; from the Lat., 
infernus. And, indeed, all the terms or 
words which are employed upon religious 
subjects are borrowed from the language 
of the propagators of the Christian reli- 
gion; and so are all the terms of art: 
though I know several gentlemen who, 
from a zeal for the antiquity and purity 
of their Gaelic, suppose from this circum- 
stance, that there is a vulgar tongue, 
and a learned language; forgetting, or 
ignorant, that all these holy words may 
be resolved into the Latin, Greek, Italian, 
or French languages, according to the 
country of the first preacher that intro- 
duced into the language such particular 
words — as the word pailjer, a prayer, 
from Pater noster; which became a term 
for prayer in general ; Agglish, or rather 
eccles, from the Lat., ecclesia, instead of 
the vulgar word Aeeil, a church ; 
Spyrryd Noo, the Holy Ghost, from the 
Lat., Spiritus, and Gr., Noos, Sanctus, 
instead of the common word, casherich ; 
Sermane or stiarmane, from sermo, in- 
stead of the vulgar expression, taggloo ; 
Ooashley or ooasley-Jee, the worship of 
God, from the English worship, and Zar. 
dei ; Saccerf or saggart, from sacerdos, 
Maistyr, master, from magister ; with 
innumerable others, which are unneces- 
sary to be cited in this place. (_Ir. and 
G. gaoidheilg.) 

Gaelc-Erinagh, the Irish Gaelic or Erse, 
(/r. Galig-Erinnach.) 

The etymology of this word Gaelc, or of 
Gae/, a Gaul, (English) is very uncertain; 
some deriving it from Gadelas, the Ibe- 
rian invader of Ireland ( Gaodhal Gtas); 
others from Gaodhla, Gaodin, Gaoihin; 
others from Galltis, an appellation given 
by the Babylonians to Noe or Ninus, 
when he Was saved from the flood ; for 
gal signified a wave; also from the Greek 
gala, (milk) because of their fair and 
milky complexion; and in M. and Ir. 
gial and geal signify white and fair. 
Thus also the Galati, Galatians, who 
were a tribe of Gauls, may have received 
their name. But the learned Pezron has 
proved the Celts to have taken the name 
of Galiu, i.e., conquerors, from the time 
of their emigration from Media into 
Cappadocia. .This word Gallu is still pre- 
served ih the British Celtic, and signifies 
power. This people, according to diflerent 
writers, are called Gueltee, Keltce, Guelgce, 
Selgce, Gudque, Guelc, Gaelc, Gelc,

contraction of the word Irish. (/r.

The sua was anciently worshipped by 
the Celts under the name of Bel, Beal, 
Baal, Boal, or Beul; (vid. bealtin,') and 
by the Greeks under the name of Apollo, 
which differs very little in the sound. 
He was called Grian from grianey or 
grianagh, to bask, heat or scorch, which 
word was latinized into Grynseus and 
Grannns, and became a classical epithet 
of Apollo. In Camden we meet with an 
inscription found in Scotland, dedicated 
Appollini Granno; in Manks, Bual or 
Pool Grianagh.

EtARE-AS-PEED, The keys or parliament of 
the Island are so called from their num- 
ber, as they consist of twenty-four per- 
sons. But as it is used as a proper name 
in conversation, it has, therefore, the 
article prefixed; as yn-chiare-as-feed. 
This is supposed by the ingenious Rev. 
"Wm. Fitzsimmons, to be a corruption of 
cor-an-phaid, the company of the pro- 
phets, wisemen, or rulers; for no doubt 
that cor is choir or company, and phaid 
aiphadeyrys, prophecy. Thegovernment 
of the Island consisted of two parts, the' 
executive and the legislative. The king 
was vested with the whole executive 
power, and had the sole appointment of 
his own ofBcers and council; the power 
of making and repealing laws, rested 
with the keys, who were obliged, in 
conjunction with ihe other power, to call 
annually a Tynwald or meeting of the 
people, where all new laws were publicly 
proclaimed three times, otherwise they 
were of no force, and a man could plead 
in court the ignorantia legis, I could 
never find whether the people had any 
other negative upon the promulgation of 
an unpopular law, except force, to which, 
according to several traditional accounts, 
they were frequently obliged to have 
recourse, and were always successful in 
the application of it. This is not to be 
wondered at, as the keys were self- 
elected, and when a member died they 
chose two men out of the body of the 
people, and presented them to the king 
for his approbation of one of them. And, 
besides, they as well as the court were 
exempt from most of the duties and taxes 
the people laboured under, and together 
exercised an arbitrary power; as an in- 
stance of which I shall only mention, 
that whenever any of them wanted ser- 
vants, they had a right to yard, that is, 
to compel by virtue of a statute or slat- 
tys, and force into their service the best 
servants in the Island, wherever they 
were to be found, and without allowing 
them common wages. Yet, notwith- 
standing this connection between the 
parliament and the court, it has been 
found that when the court has attempted 
any innovation, the keys have uniformly 
joined the people. When the Earl of 
Derby endeavoured to remove the people 
■ from their possessions, and to consider 
the soil as his property, the people and 
keys united, and at last obtained from 
the Insular Legislature the Act of Set- 
tlement, A.D.j 17G4; which confirmed 
every man in the possession of his estate, 
and made his possession his property. 




Notwithstanding the Island is annexed 
at present to the Orown of England, the 
laws and manner of gorernment continue 
with little Tariation, except that the 
Governor, who is appointed by the Crown 

• of England, acts, in most instances, in 
the place of the farmer Kings of Mann. 
It appears both from history and tradi- 
tion, that at first the kiare-as-feed were 
chosen by popular election from each of 
the six sheadings; but that afterwards, 
on the death of one of the body, they 
presented two commoners to the kitag, 
and he was obliged to elect one of the

Man, s. Man, or Isle of Man. ( W. man, 

Manjoob,, s. a manger. 

Mannanan Mac t Leak, the name given 
by English historians to a sorcerer who 
reigned in Man, and by his power pre- 
vented sfi passengers from seeing it, by 
raising a mist to conceal it firom their 
view. This is partly false and partly 
true; for that Mannanan governed or 
resid.ed there is true; as the word Man- 
nanan, or Maknana, or Mannanagh, 
means no more than that the inhabitants 
of the place were called Mannanee, as 
they are to this day, i.e., Manksmen or 
Mankishmen. It is true also that mists 
are so fiequent, that ships approaching 
the Island may very easily be supposed, 
without much sorcery, to lose sight of it 
and miss it. But on the other hand, 
Mac y tear, or hear or leak, signifying 
the Son of the Seer, he must be a sor- 
cerer himself. Yet as leak or lear is also 
the twilight when mists prevail most, a 
Manksman may very properly be called 
Mannana mac y leak, the Son of the 
Mist, or Son of the Twilight. Or as 
lear is moreover the sea, he may be said 
to be the Son of the Sea. 

Manninagh, manmanaqh, s. pi. ee. a 
Manksman or woman. (_Manks, i.e., 
Mankish.) This patronimio Manninagh 
seems to destroy McPherson^s etymology. 
According to him, the name of a -Manks- 
man would htsM eanagh, which would be • 
either the middle man or the Monkish 
man, (as Balley-meanagh is Abbot's- 
Land.) But this is answered by writing 
Meaninagh or mayninagh, the middle 
Islandman, or the Monkish Islandman. 
Tet use the word ellan, an islaiid, and 
you do not say, yn ellan veanagh or vea- 
ninagh, the middle island ; but yn Ellan 
Manin, the Island Manrisle, or Ellan 
Vanin, the Island of Maurisle; whilst 
meanin is literally the middle of the is- 
land, not the middle island. Nor is there 
an instance where the word mean is pro- 
nounced as with an a (^hort), but as an 
u there is; as mean-oie, midnight; mun- 
laa, midday, or the middle of them; be- 
sides the word man, mean, pr mqnos is 
sufSciently descriptive and satisfaeto^, 
except we prefer Mamiia, ironi Mannus, 




JVormannia and (_q. the Southern Heb- 
rides,) Sudormannia, so this island is 
(without reference to its situation) called 

Manning, mannin, the Island of Man. This 
word is compounded of mean, according 
to Mc. Pherson, the middle, and in, an 
island, because it is situated between 
England, Ireland, and Scotland. ( W. 
Manaw ; Lat., by Csesar, Mona.) But 
perhaps this island may hare been called 
Man by the Norwegians (who were the 
descendants of the Germans), in honour 
of their god Mannus. " Tuistonem deum 
terra editum, ad filium Mannum, origi- 
nem yentis conditoresque. Manno tres 
filios assignant," &c. Vid. Tacitus de 
mor. Ger. It is often spelt with two final 
nti's, implying that it consists of several 
isles. As this island was called by Csesar 
Mona, the word or name might imply 
the little, single spot; or the place of 
sorcery, from mon, a foretelling; and in 
the time of the Danes, the change of a 
letter favoured their superstition, and 
thus it was called Man, from Mannus.

TiNNET-sHEABANE, «. Will o' the wisp, a 

TiNN-VAAL, s. pr. name, Tinwald-hill, as it 
is usually called. It is supposed to signify 
aheap of earth and stones, which assumed 
the appearance of a hill. The word 
literally signifies the fire of Baal, the 
place of the fire or Altar of Baal. The 
Tinwald, or Court of the Tinwald, was 
anciently held in the central situation, in 
the parish of Kirk Braddan, called Saal- 
tinn, for the south part of the Island, 
while the Tinn-vaal, for the north side, 
was at Knock-Urley. In Baaltinn are 
still the remains of an old temple, which, 
at the time of the introduction of Chris- 
tianity, was converted into a church, and 
dignified by the name of Keeill Abban — 
i.e., the Abbot's Church. The Tinwald 
is at present held at St. John's Chapel, 
near Peel, upon St. John's Day, when all 
new laws are promulgated in the open 

air, in the presence of the people, three ' 
times, before they have the force of Law. 
There is a striking resemblance between 
the Gallic Tinvaal and the Icelandic 
Thingvalla. All causes in Iceland are 
first decided at the Harad's Thing, or 
County-court, from which the parties 
concerned may appeal to the Al-tjiing, 
or Common Court of Justioe, which is 
kept every year, on the 8th of July, at 
Thing-valla. Von Trail's Letters on 
Iceland. London, 1780, p. 72. See 
Baaltinn. The Kev. W. ritz;mmons has 
the following note after Tinn. Vaal; — '

JUAN KELLY, Abdleigh, Essex. 

















Dn. Kelly left no English and Manx Dictionary corresponding 
to his Manx and English Dictionary. He had, however, prepared a 
Triglot of Manx, Irish, and Erse, based upon English ; and had com- 
menced the printing of the work when a fire broke out in the printing 
office and destroyed the sheets that were worked off. This put a stop 
to its publication at that time. Had the Triglot been published, it 
would, though necessarily a large and expensive work, have superseded 
in some measure an English and Manx Dictionary. 

The Manx Society had for some time entertained the design of 
publishing the learned Doctor's Triglot entire; the manuscript of 
which had been generously put into their hands by Mrs. Gordon 
Kelly. But on deliberation this design was abandoned. 

Their attention was then directed to an ' English and Manx 
Dictionary, in manuscript, which purported to supply the place of a 
second part to Da. Kelly's Dictionary. This was the work of 
Mr. Joiffl IvON Moslet, of Manchester, a gentleman who without 
any of the advantages of a residence in the Isle of Man, had prepared a 
Dictionary which reflected great credit on his intellectual acumen and 
philological research. 

It became, however, a matter of inquiry, how far an English and 
Manx Dictionary might be drawn from the Doctor's own more copious 
work ; and on examination, it was found that the English and Manx 
portions of the Triglot were well adapted to form the groundwork of 
the required sequel. 


The Society thereupon decided on ayailing themselves of the 
Doctor's learned labours, and requested the Eer. W. Gill, and the 
Kev. J. T, Claeke to rerise that portion of the Doctor's work, adapt- 
ing it to form the second part to his Dictionary, and adding thereto all 
such words from Cregeen's and Mosley's Dictionaries as would 
improve and enrich the volume. This labour has fallen chiefly into 
the hands of Mr. Claeke, who has brought a life-long acquaintance 
with the language to bear upon the performance of the task assigned 
him. He has judged it advisable to make numerous alterations on his 
own responsibility, which cannot in all cases be acknowledged. His 
own additions are distinguished by the letter G affixed to- them ; those 
from Ceegbbn by the letters Or. ; and those from Mosley by the letter 
M. Notwithstanding these alterations and additions, the work may 
still be received as entitled substaniiallij to the sanction of Dr. Kelly's 


Januaet, 1867. 


The 'fullovjinrj notice appears to have been inlended hy De. KellY 
to- he preparatory to the publication of his Triglot Dictionary. It is 
considered worthy of a place here as an interesting introduction to his 
English and Manx Dictionary : — 

To cultivate a language and to improve a people are similar offices. 

Under a conviction of this truth I have, with much labour, compiled a 

Dictionary of the Gaelic Language as it is spoken in Scotland, Ireland 

and Man. The writers who have preceded me on this subject have 

endeavpured to obtain the attention of the public by dwelling on the 

great antiquity of the Gaelic, by commending the vast energy of its 

phraseology, and by displaying the etymological purity of its words. 

On all these accounts it is highly worthy the attention of the scholar 

and the antiquary. But these are confined objects, embracing words 

and neglecting men. The enlarged minds of the primitive bishops, 

Wilson and Hildesley, " who loved the language and the people who 

spoke it," studied it with a higher view,— to render it by publication 

instrumental in removing ignorance, communicating truth, and obtaining 

a knowledge of English. Their motives were religious and moral ; but 

the present state of the empire holds out to government and individuals 

another motive at this time not less imperious, that unity of language 

is the surest cement of civil as well as of religious establisbmeats. 


hasloiig been the policy of France to render her language 
universal, and she has acquired more influence by its becoming the court 
language of Europe than even by her arms in the field. Had a similar 
policy been extended by this country to Ireland ;— had books been 
printed in Gaelic, and Gaelic schools estabhshed in those parts of Ireland 
where Gaelic is the vulgar tongue, the people would have acquired 
learning by using the English alphabet,— they would have read English 
before they could read Irish, by reading Irish through an ..English 
medium,— they would have understood English before they had learnt 
Irish,— such a portion at least of English as would beyond a doubt have 
enabled them by reading and conversation to have dixinished, if not 
altogether to have removed, the deplorable ignorance, poverty and 
bigotiy under which they have so long laboured. Had the beneficed 
clergy likewise been qualified by a knowledge of the language spoken 
by their parishioners,— had they been obliged to preach,— had they been 
obliged to pray in Gaelic, many of the evils which have befallen Ireland 
might have been avoided, and those with which it is at present threat- 
ened most probably prevented. It is true that in process of time this 
cultivation of the Gaelic language will destroy the language itself, as a 
living language ; but it will have produced the knowledge of a better, 
and will descend to posterity by means of the press in a more 
perfect state, than if it should be found only in the conversation of 
unlettered individuals. There would be no more cause for regret, then, 
that it was not a living language^ than there is at present, that the 
Hebrew, Greek, and Latin are no longer such. 

By the publication of Gaelic books, and more particularly by the 
clergy being obliged to imderstand, and to use the Gaelic language, the 
Eoman Catholic faith was entirely superseded in Man. Of thirty 
thousand inhabitants, there is not to be found one native who is a 
Eoman Catholic, nor a single dissenter from the Established Church of 
England. The same wisdom exercised by the rulers of the Church of 
Scotland, has produced similar effects in the Highlands. By their clergy 
being obliged to use the Gaelic language in the Highland parishes, the 
national and political prejudices, which formerly existed so strongly 
there, are entirely removed, and the knowleflge of the English language, 


in consequence of the publication of the Gaelic Scriptures and Gaelic 
books, is everywhere gaining ground. And when there shall be one 
national language, then only will the union of the empire be completely 

To go at length into this argument is not the intention of this 
notice. If what has been here suggested shall obtain the means of 
printing and putting into circulation in Scotland, Ireland, and Man, a 
considerable number of the volumes of this Dictionary, much good will 
be done; and as that is my object, it will also be my reward.
