[From Slater's Directory, 1846]



CASTLETOWN is a well-built respectable market town in the parish of Malew, and is the capital of the island, being the seat of the insular government; it is 12 miles s. of Peel, 16 s. of Kirk Michael, 25 s.w. of Ramsey, 4 E. of Port St. Mary, and 9½ s w. of Douglas. The town consists of serveral good streets, all clean and in good repair. Over the small river which forms the port is a stone bridge for carriages, and below that is a wooden draw-bridge for foot passengers. The bay is spacious, but rocky; there is a buoy on the Lheeahro Rock at the entrance to the bay, which is covered at spring tides at two hours flood and large vessels can enter the harbour at low water. There is very good anchorage. A fine new pier, nearly finished, on the south side of the harbour, is to be terminated by a lighthouse, and other improvements are in progress In the centre of the town stands Castle Rushen, a most noble specimun of Gothic architecture, which, according to tradition, was built by Guttred in 960; the workmen who were making some alterations in the castle in 1815, however, found a beam bearing the date of '947;' it is, therefore, naturally conjectured that the castle was erected in that year. The walls are from seven to twelve feet thick, from seventy to eighty feet high, and the limestone of which they are composed is as fresh as though it had been taken from the quarry only a few years since. Eleven new cells have recently been added to the gaol, where prisoners convicted of the more serious classes of offences are confined; and a female gaoler has also been appointed. Robert Bruce, King of Scotland, besieged this fortress for six months, in the year 1313; it is now used as the permanent prison of the island, and also for holding the insular courts Those of the chancery and exchequer are held on the first Thursday of every month except January and September, but if necessary special Courts are called; a Court of common law sits in February, May, July and October; a court of general gaol delivery takes place twice a year, and oftener should the lieutenant governor deem it requisite; the deemster's court sits every alternate Monday, the water baliliff's and high bailiff's courts every Saturday, the insular debtors'court in the months of February and August, the house of keys' court once a year, and a Tynwald the 5th July. The House of Keys court sits one a year for the purpose of hearing appeals from the courts of common law, and the governor can, at any time, convene the Keys for the consideration of legislative matters.

There is little in the way of manufacturing here; but from the frequent sittings of different courts of law, and the number of pupils educated at the college, the town generally presents an animated appearance. Considerable quantities of agricultural produce are brought to the market-place, which forms a fine area, almost square, ornamented in the centre with a chaste fluted freestone column, nearly fifty feet high, in the Grecian style, erected in 1836 to the memory of the late venerable Lieutenant-Governor C. Smelt.

Two fine hotels are established in Castletown, the 'George' and the' Grecian' The first named, situated in the Market-place, is admirably conducted by Mr. Kneen, and stands deservedly high for the superior accommodation and excellent fare furnished to its numerous guests. The ' Grecian,' situated at the Bowling-green, and recently opened by Mr. Poole, offers great atractions to parties visiting Castletown. It stands close to the mansion of the Hon. Lieutenant-Governor, and commands delightful prospects-embracing the neighbouring mountains, Castle Rushen, etc., together with an extensive sea view, and the rich scenery of pleasure grounds and Gardens with which the hotel is surrounded. There is a branch of the Isle of Man Commercial Banking Company here, of which Mr. William Downes is the manager.

The places of worship are the parish church a mile and a quarter north of Castletown - the living is the gift of the crown; St. Thomas's chapel forming part of King William's College; and St. Mary's chapel on one side of the parade; the latter which was first erected in 1698, and rebuilt in 1826, is a chaplainacy in the gift of the governor : the present incumbent is the Rev G. S. Parsons, the Government Chaplain which gentleman has purchased the principal part of the property in College-lane, near the grammar school, A large portion of which he has converted, at a considerable expense, into alms-houses or dwellings for the blind, aged and infirm poor. About twenty of these are, by the munificence of the reverend gentleman,provided with comfortable homes and separate apartments, over the entrance to each of which is a suitable text of scripture. Some of them are employed at the spinning-wheel, or other occupations as their age and infirmities allow, by which they earn a small pittance, while the remainder of their wants are supplied by their kind benefactor. There are commodious cellars under the same building where coals, potatoes, &c. are gratuitously distributed to to the poor during winter, from donations collected by Mr. Parsons from the governor, and gentry, &c. of the town and neighbourhood. In the same street are alms-houses for four widows, left by the late respected and benevolent Robert Quayle, Esq of West hill.

The Wesleyan and primitive methodists have each a chapel; and there is also,one for Roman catholics, in College green. Half a mile north-east of the town, and about three hundred yards from the shore, stands King William's College, one of the finest public buildings in the Isle, erected in 1830 in the early English style; it is two hundred and ten feet long and one hundred and thirty five feet broad, including St Thomas's chapel, which stretches from the centre at right angles with the college; from the intersection rises a square embattled tower, ninety-seven feet high. The buildings cost upwards of £6,500.; the accumulated funds left for educational and other purposes in the hands of trustees supplied £2,692. 1s. 5d, and the rest was furnished by voluntary subscriptions, or still remains to be paid. More than one hundred and fifty pupils, chiefly boarders, are educated in the college at present, and are prepared for the British and Irish universities, and for the professions; two students are educated on the foundation for the Manx church. The college contains four spacious class-rooms, and a library is attached to the institution. On the 14th of January 1844, the college, with the exception of the vice-principal's house, was destroyed by fire, but was restored by the liberal contribtions of friends in the Island, and was rendered more commodious than before. There is an excellent grammar-school in College-lane, and also a national school; in the latter, fifty boys and fifty girls are educated. Halsall's school, in the same street, is for the education, free, of twenty children. Saint Mary's national school, Hope street, has been furnished with a good library by the Rev. Mr. Parsons. Taubman's school, Douglas street, is for teaching gratuitously, twenty five boys the usual branches of learning together with navigation. The market-house and assembly rooms were built in 1830 and are situate in the centre of the town. The weekly market is held on Saturday.

BALLASALLA is a village of prepossing and respectable appearance, consisting of about one hundred houses; it is situate in the parish of Malew, nearly two miles northof Castletown, at the point where the Peel and Douglas roads separate. This is the largest and most English-looking village in ther island; the roads in the vicinity are generally lined with newly cut hedge-rows; and the country around being well sheltered with wood, and varied by gently-swelling eminences, the prospects, though not very extensive, are pleasing. Not far from Ballasalla are extensive limeworks, and an ochre umber and Roman cement manufactory. The primitive and the Wesleyan methodists each have a chapel, and Malew parish school is here. Two fairs are held annually, on 12th August and 29th September.

MALEW parish is situate in the sheading of Rushen, in the southern division of the island, and is comparatively very extensive being eight miles in length from north to south. and at least four in breadth from east to west. Besides the parish church, there is a chapel of ease, dedicated to St. Mark, situate about five miles north of Castletown; the living is a chaplaincy, in the gift of the crown. The parish also contains two Primitive and two Wesleyan methodist chapels. A great portion of the parish is fertile and the northern part, which is mountainous and not susceptible of tillage, has several slate quarries, and likewise produces lead ore. Two annual fairs are held at St. Mark's—one on the 5th January. the other on the. 12th May
