Hello. I don't research this family too often, but I did receive some new information last year.
I am told that my ancestors were:
John and Esther (CORKILL) CORKILL
in the Lezayre Parish on the Isle of Man
They reportedly had 10 children during the 1820's and 1830's. I have the names of many of them, but not all.
My ancestor was their son, Evan CORKILL, b1827. In ~1851 he married in Liverpool, England, to Elizabeth QUAYLE. Even though QUAYLE is a popular name on the Isle of Man, Elizabeth was born in Whitehaven, Cumbria / Cumberland, England.
Evan and Elizabeth had 7 children, but their 2nd son, Lewis CORKILL died as a child. Their 1st son, Edward CORKILL, went to Canada in 1873. Their younger 5 children went to Canada in 1874 and 1875 - as "British Home Children."
There seems to have been several Lewis CORKILL's on the IOM, so a guess is that they were part of John CORKILL's extended family.
I have corresponded with descendants of Edward CORKILL in Canada, and I heard from someone who thinks she is descended from his sister, Margaret CORKILL. I don't know about the other 7 children. (There is information in the archives of the IOM List and Boards and the CORKILL Lists and Boards.)
