Where do you draw the line, Earystane, Agneash, The Cooil, Pooilvaish, The Lhen, Ballakilpheric, Little London, etc? its an interesting question.   Near my holiday home there’s a road sign

Or maybe the presence of a current, or past, church or chapel or school room. It’s a community, surely.

Are you saying Douglas is in Braddan and in Onchan?

 

Yes. The present-day town of Douglas (as it has expanded) now encompasses parts of the historical parishes of Braddan and Onchan.

So you only mean part of Douglas falls in Onchan and newer bits in Braddan.

Suggest you list Castletown and Peel Separately from their parishes and then do an “other“ category under each parish where you have a village listed.

All this tit for tat arguing when all he asked was a simple question?

I will add something helpful, Baldrine.

What defines a village? Thinking back to my school geography it’s a village hall, and a population of a few hundred or so. Less than that and it’s a hamlet, population in the thousands and it’s a town. 

Try telling that to an Onchanite!

Yes, and it’s not just new douglas up Farmhill, Vicarage Road, etc, it’s Head Road, South Quay, Leigh Terrace
