William McCrystyn1

M, #153455, b. 1527, d. 1568
Last Edited=29 May 2012
     William McCrystyn was born in 1527 at Milntown, Lezayre, Isle of ManG.2 He was the son of Ewan McCrystyn.1 He married unknown Samsbury, daughter of unknown Samsbury, circa 1540 in a Lezayre, Isle of Man marriage.2,1 He died in 1568 at Milntown, Lezayre, Isle of ManG.2,3
     He held the office of Deemster.2 He held the office of Archdeacon between 1550 and 1568.2
     Family tradition has it that one of the daughters of Deemster William married an Abbot. This used to be quoted as a joke. The Abbot referred to was to have been an Abbot of Rushen, IoM. If this was really the case, Richard Glanville-Brown may have found the substantiation of it in a pedigree lately lent to him of the family Radcliffe of Knock-Aloe-Moar, who repeatedly intermarried with the Christians of Milntown. The pedigree states that Sir John Radcliffe, who was beheaded together with Sir William Stanley for rising in favour of Lambert Simnel 1497 -- left two sons, the second of whom, Thomas Radcliffe, was appointed Abbot of Rushen, through the influence of the Stanleys in 1532. He was party to the disolution of the monastery in 1537, accepting a quid pro quo in a lease or a grant of the property Knock-Aloe-Moar, near Peel in Patrick. After this statement follows the addition: "Like many of those who went out of religion, he married".

This time coincides with the time of William McChristen, who was entered in the Manorial Records for the Estate of Milntown in 1527, hence the tradition that the Abbot, Thomas Radcliffe "who went out of religion and married" Deemster William's daughter may be true.2
