  1. Hi,
    I am helping my friend Ken Quirk research his family tree who I am meeting for our regular pint in Our local
    the Plough & Horses in Farnborough,Hampshire.He is from the uk but ancestors
    are from Cregneash area
    His gt grandfather William Aemilius Quirk was baptised in Cregneath 1888
    son of William henry Quirk who married Margaret eliz Gill(Gale) in liverpool
    Is there any connection with Quirks croft which is a nice picture.?
    Ive downloaded the picture to give to him.
    They were fishermen/seafairers.
    regards

    1. If your friends folk were from Cregneash , this would have been a family home, the village is preserved as an open Air Museum , try and get a copy of the film Waking Ned Devine a great film
      All set in the village..
      See i museum Isle of Man for more info

    2. Hi there, I’m trying to track down Ken Quirk, as I believe his maternal grandfather might have been William Gibson an early player for Everton FC, in the 1880s, before the Football League started. It would be great to hear from him if possible. I’m looking into the Gibson side of the family tree and more than happy to share anything I’ve found.
