Hello. I've been thinking about my CORKILL ancestors again, and have been offered new information and have been reviewing old information which was offered to me - and I forgot about.
I had assumed that John William CORKILL, b1826 on the IOM had married in Liverpool and lived there. In a posting almost 3 years ago someone had offered census information which showed my assumption was wrong. From the census information, this is John's family:
John W. CORKILL, b1826 IOM Dorothy (?) CORKILL, b1823, Maryport, Cumberland, England Colin, b1850, Maryport John, b1851, Maryport Robert, b1854, Maryport Esther, b1857, Maryport Ellen, b1859, Maryport Margaret, b1861, Liverpool Lewis, b1864, Liverpool Simon/Simeon, b1868, Liverpool
So, it appears that John and Dorothy CORKILL left Maryport and moved to Liverpool ~1860. And, it appears that they probably married in Maryport ~1848.
I have checked the on-line census for 1841, I have typed up a summary of the CORKILL's who were living in Ramsey on the Isle of Man at that time. The same first names appear in 3 generations, or more.
If anyone is interested, I can offer more information.

FYI:A reminder is that my ancestor is Evan CORKILL, b1827 Isle of Man, the younger brother of the above John.
Evan married Elizabeth QUAYLE who was born in Whitehaven, Cumberland, England.But they married in Liverpool in 1852.They had 7 children in Liverpool from 1852 to 1871.
