published under the auspices of Tynwald by the Manx Museum & Ancient Monuments Trustees; The first Manxman to make a special study of the surnames of the Isle of Man was the late Arthur William Moore, who in 1890 published the result of his labour. This edition was followed by two subsequent ones, all of which are long ago out of print. The present volume deals with the earliest recorded personal names on the Ogam and Runic monuments, down to those contained in the parochial registers and other sources, to the year 1830, about which time there is a great influx of surnames from the surrounding countries, the inclusion of which would have overburdened the text and would not have added materially to its historical value.
