[From Smith's Directory, 1883]


MAROWN, in the sheading of Glenfaba, is the only parish not washed by the sea and is bounded on the east by Braddan, on the south by Santon, on the west by Patrick, and on the north by German. The parish is about five miles long, and averages about three miles in breadth ; the northern and southern parts being mountainous and barren. The parish church is situated about 4½. miles W. by N. from Douglas, and is dedicated to St. Rooney, from whom the parish takes its name. The living is a vicarage in the gift of the Crown, and held by the Rev. B. P. Clarke. The Wesleyans have chapels at Crosby and Mount Rule, and the Primitive Methodists at East Foxdale and Braaid.
