[From Brown's Directory, 1881/2]


Marown, the Midland Parish of Man, is the only one which does not touch the sea. It includes the middle section of the central valley from Greebah to Union Mills, with the mountainous regions on either side from Colden and the village of Baldwin to the Santon Burn. It contains about 9 square miles. Its only river is the Dhoo, which flows into the valley, and into which several smaller streams fall. It is an agricultural district, but its soil is only moderately fertile. A great part of the valley is boggy and subject to heavy floods. The population is agricultural, and in 1871 was 1,121. The present vicar of the parish is the Rev. Benjamin Philpot Clarke.
