Quine Family Guest Book Part 2 by Douglas Quine
- [Quine] Jan 13 2003 "Clague and Curphey connection" --- Hi, I noticed your reference to Clague and Curphey, and I am
curious to know the connection between your name and those of my Douglas, IOM ancestors. (Grandfather and Grandmother).
Ricky Cooper --- email: ROCOCO1934 (at) aol.com
Ricky - My great-great-great-great-great-grandfather is the Clague connection in the Isle of Man:
Robert Quine (Onchan, Isle of Man) ? - 1809 (wed Mary Clague 1768)
The Curphey connection is through a message in this guest book:
[Quine] Dec 3, 1999 "Quines" (found site through: familysearch) --- Family connections with the Quine family. A Robert Quine
emigrated to USA and apparently became a surgeon and served in the USAF where he was killed in a plane crash. He had a wife
in the Isle of Man and never divorced her. He had, presumably, a common-law wife in USA and had a son and daughter-Don (of
the Virginian fame and who apparently has 2 children) and Janice. I would very much like to find out some more details of
these and Irene, Don's mother. Robert's mother was my grandfather's sister. Robert's wife had a daughter Avril and she had
2 children Ruth and Robert and died from eclampsia shortly after this birth. I have a fairly extensive tree of the present
Quines (with my connection) and Corkill, Clague and Curphey connections. Of Robert's generation only Clarence Bridson Quine
is alive and not too well at the moment unfortunately. Cheers Phil Corkill from Phil Corkill ---

- [Quine] Jan 17, 2003 "William Frederick Quine b 1795" --- Hello - I have a william frederick quine b 1795. He served in
the navy as an apprentice surgeon. He married Eliza Hollingshead in 1818 in Liverpool. He was involved in the cholera
outbreak in 1832/33. He died in 1848. Have you any information on him at all please. --- Eric Price
email: eric.w.price (at) blueyonder.co.uk
Eric - I regret that I do not have information about Quine family members in the UK. I only have slim
information about my ancestors who came to the USA. I would suggest contacting the Isle of Man Family History Society
(http://www.isle-of-man.com/interests/genealogy/fhs/intro.shtml). The Quine family comes from the Isle of Man and the
society has very solid information about Quine family members. Best regards - Doug
- [Quine] May 14, 2003 "Subject: QUINE/KEWLEY/BOYD/McLARTY/Kissack" --- Hello..... seeking QUINEs who may have
intermarried with KEWLEYs in the Onchan area of the IOM. Apparently, KEWLEY has been established at the
Onchan Parish Church for more than 130 years. Would also like some information if Onchan Parish Church records are
available for research and how to do that. Any information would be gratefully appreciated. Thank you, John Pohlman ---
email: JPohlman (at) monierlifetile.com / suzanne.pohlman (at) cox.net
I'm sorry that I can't offer any insights myself. However, the Isle of Man family history society is
especially strong in Quine history. You can reach them through the links at my web site: http://www.quine.org/quine.html
Good luck and please reply with any new information to add to the guest book. Best regards - Doug

- [Quine] June 18, 2003 "C. R. Quine's Article "Akron's Old Forge," published 1950" Hi! I am interested in the history
of the Pennsylvania and Ohio Canal.
Recently, I found that Mr. Cloyd Robert Quine had written an article titled, "Akron's Old Forge." In it Cloyd included a
map of the nine locks of the Pennsylvania and Ohio Canal, which were presumably located near his business.
These locks are shown on his map, but he does not state where he got the map or how he located these nine locks.
I do not know if you or other family members can add or clarify the data published by Cloyd, but if you can you can help,
I certainly would appreciate it. Best Regards, Don Danko --- ADVPATRES (at) nccw.net
Thank you for the note. This certainly is a "blast from the past". I am aware of the writings that my
grandfather did on the history of Akron and Ohio. I even have some of them buried in a very deep family file. However, I
have no idea where he obtained the information about the locks - and he, my father, and my uncle are no longer
around to ask. The only possibility would be to explore the Ohio historical records - but that is probably how you found
these papers. Sorry I can't help more. - Doug
- [Quine] July 23, 2003 "Phyliss Quine who married Harry Simmonds" Hi, how amazing! I'm Leigh Simmonds. I was just browsing through the internet and thought I would look up my grandmother's maiden name - She was a Phyliss Quine who came to Birmingham, England in WW2 and married Harry Simmonds. I know that my grandmother had a sister called Mable and I think a Gladys and I know she also had a brother Arthur who went to live in Germany and I think she may have had another brother who I met once but I dont recall his name. It would be brilliant to find some distant relatives and ancestors. Where do I start? Many thanks. Leigh SIMONDS ... email: matt (at) pegasusconstruction.freeserve.co.uk
Thank you for note (and my deep regrets for the extraordinary delay in responding to you). The Isle of Man family society (link at my web site: www.quine.org/quine.html) has excellent information about the Quine family. When your message to the Quine guest book is p;osted later tonight, it will makes 175 postings. You may find many of the other messages of interest - they come from Quine relatives from England to Australia and many places in between (link: www.quine.org/guestqui.html). Best regards - Doug, Douglas Boynton Quine, webmaster

- [Quine] December 28, 2003 "Gertrude Quine from Isle of Man and the Gibb, Pitt, Hayter, Duff, and Bolton family trees" Hello Douglas, I have attached my extensive database (excel) with names, dates, and photographs gibb-family-tree.xls (565 kb in size) on my family. It is divided into 3 sections (sheets) The Gibb line is my true blood line but unfortunately this is the line I have only small information on.

came across your page. Pretty cool stuff. My dad is William Douglas

from Canada and moved to San Francisco where my dad was born. -JQ (jlquine (at) ucdavis.edu)
- [Quine] "Stanley Tinwald Quine and Mark Quine" --- I am yet another Quine - from Australia. I have always wanted to trace my family tree, but thought it to much trouble. Upon finding the Quine web site, I began to think that maybe one of you other Quines out there would help me get started in the right direction. All I know to date is that the Quine name originates from the Isle Of Man, and the name of my Great Grandfather was Stanley Tinwald Quine - who apparently was born in Australia from what I was told. If any one has anything to share with me regarding my ancester, I would be very pleased. With thanks, Mark Quine (Queensland - Australia) msquine (at) iprimus.com.au
- [Quine] March 5, 2005 "Thomas Quine family in Australia" --- Hello. My name is Raina Quine. I live in Brisbane, Australia. My father is Thomas Edward Quine, his father; Thomas George Quine and his father; Thomas George Quine. Unfortunately we haven't been able to trace back any futher, but it's nice to see a website of so many Quines. - Raina Quine [rainamcc (at) ourbrisbane.com]
Dear Raina and Mark (previous 2 messages) - Thanks for your messages, funny to receive two similar messages within a month from Australia! I wish I could help but I have nothing to offer regarding your specific family line. I can only suggest that you contact the Isle of Man family history society - they are very active with the Quine name. There have been a few postings from Australia at our Quine guestbook (which I've copied below). By the way, my family enjoyed visiting Australia a couple of years ago - and my father (wvquine.org) very much enjoyed his visit there in 1959.

Has anyone had any contact with Alan John Quine Evans who wrote entry no. 114 in the first guest book?
I have just discovered the very interesting site.When reading the guest book I saw that Alan's grandfather was my uncle so I tried to contact him, via the web address that he gave, but met with no success.
Hope someone can help! Mike Evans [mrmevans (at) btinternet.com]
- [Quine] May 25, 2005 "seeking Alan John Quine Evans" --- Hello, Quines and reationship to Harveys and Evans
Doug. I attempted to send a message to Leigh Simmonds ref his entry no 175 in your guest book 2, but it was returned as not deliverable.
He mentioned that his grandmother, Phyllis Quine, had a sister Mabel and another, Gladys. I think I know the family - Gladys , Mabel and Clifford used to come and visit us. There was another brother Arthur (and four other children who all died in infancy or early youth - the eldest, Colin, sadly died in 1912 aged only 16) -- However their surname was not 'Quine' but 'Harvey'. They were related to the Quines but only by marriage - their mothers brother, John Evans married Mary Jane Quine in 1887.
I think this might interest Leigh Simmonds and also Alan John Quine Evans who is descended from John Evans. (entry no 114 in the first guest book refers).
yours, Mike Evans [mrmevans (at) btinternet.com]
- [Quine] June 18, 2005 "Hello to other Australian Quines" --- My name is Gabrielle Thompson (Quine) and I am a descendant of Edward and Eliza Quine who arrived in Australia in 1884 who's son George Harrison Quine was my grandfather. Most interested to get in contact with Gwen Meredith whose visits to our house during my childhood were always memorable. Gwen's mother Jean was a Quine and one of my aunties. Would be pleased to hear from you Gwen. Mary and Laurie say hello. Contact me on : llily2004 (at) hotmail.com]
- [Quine] June 18, 2005 "William Quine, 19th-century RN surgeon" --- You may be interested to know that the BBC Radio-4 programme _Making History_ discussed one William Quine from the Isle of Man, a surgeon in the Royal Navy during the 19th century. Quite possibly an ancestor of yours? And, indeed, the listener whose ancestor he is may well be a relative? The BBC could perhaps put you in touch. http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/history/making_history/making_history_20050628.shtml
Series 11, Programme 11, 28 June 2005
A Royal Navy surgeon in the 19th century
Making History listener Jennifer Fell contacted the programme for help in finding out more about the career of her ancestor William Quine. Quine served as an Acting Assistant Surgeon on board HMS Neptune (1811) and HMS Grampus (1815). Jennifer wanted to know about Quine's training and the skills he might have had.
Making History consulted Peter Goodwin, Curator of HMS Victory in Portsmouth, and Tony Harrison, Surgeon for the Historical Maritime Society.

- [Quine] August 5, 2005 "Quine grandson" --- Hi Doug,
I read your material regarding my mother Janice and her brother Don both children of Robert Quine (surgeon in USAF). I was hoping you could share some family tree information that touches Robert Quine and my Great Uncle, Clarey Quine of IOM.

- [Quine] August 10, 2005 "Robert William Quine of Australia and South Africa" --- Hi there, My Grandfather was Robert William Quine, born in Melborne Australia 23/7/1894. He came to Cape Town and opened a Ship Chandling business in the harbour, named ROBERT QUINE & SON. He had 5 children and 18 grandchildren and those grandchildren now have their own children. So Quines, there are many more of us over here. If you would like to know all about us, please contact me,

- [Quine] August 11, 2005 "The Quine family" --- Hi. Like many other postings I am aware of being a rarity in Australia, however I am trying to trace when the first Quine made their way to the Australian shore. I am an archaeologist and currently working at Port Arthur in Tasmania and am interested in Clay smoking pipes of which we have a manx one in the collection. I have searched but can find no trace of a Quine convict but that is not to say that one was not a solider or seaman. Do you know anything of any early Quine’s to travel to Australia either free or convict?
Thank you for your time

- [WVQ] September 22, 2005 "Catherine Quine" --- Hi, I came across your web address from a response on the IOM Genealogy discussion board by Nigel Crowe..
I am wondering if you might be able to verify if this Catherine Quine who was born <1767> in Patrick died <1804> in ? (unknown parents) was married to a Philip Shimmin on 26 Jul 1787 in Patrick.
Am guessing that the birth for Philip Shimmin was 12 Sep 1762 Patrick, son of Philip Shimmin.
Have these children so far of a Phillip Shimmin & Catherine Quine
Sarah Shimmin c23 Sep 1787 Patrick
Ann Shimmin c12 Sep 1789 Patrick would be my gggg-grandmother
Margaret Shimmin c30 May 1802 Patrick
Any help is much appreciated.

- [Quine] October 5, 2005 "The Criterion Quartette, members named Quine, Snow, Noeker, Dumas." --- Hello. Recently I came across a piece of sheet music from about 1920 with a photo of The Criterion Quartette, members named Quine, Snow, Noeker, Dumas. Was this Mr. Quine related to Cloyd Robert Quine, or any in the family? His eyes are much like those I remember of Cloyd's son Robert, of Akron Ohio. Thanks for any info. you can share. Nancy Pittenger Need
Nancy - This sounds interesting. I'm not familiar with any such group. Regards - Doug
Thanks for the quick responses, Doug. I'm attaching here the photo from the music and the two halves of the front of the music. My parents were close friends of both Bob & Ginna, and then Bob & Rosalie. I'm a couple years older than "Robbie" as I knew him, and his younger brother "Van." Our families were together occasionally in the fifties. I met Kit once, about 1957, when he came to visit his father. I think perhaps my father arranged the meeting as Kit appeared at our home before the meeting with his father. My mother (very healthy, about to celebrate her 94th birthday) speaks fondly of their evenings together with Rosalie & Bob and the French & Brazilian music they shared.
I'll be interested to hear of any connection you discover!
Front of sheet music:
Any insights among other readers? I don't recognize the face. - Doug
- [Quine] December 22, 2005 "Quines, Kewleys and Corkill" ---
I find some of the questions and information quite interesting! I am a Corkill by birth with all of the Corkills originating in the parish of Rushen, Isle of Man. My Fathers Mother was a Quine - one of 5 sisters who all came from Rushen/Malew.
However, on my Mothers side of the family - Killip we are descended from Kewleys who are buried in Kirk Onchan there being quite a few generations there that I am related to. I actually live in Onchan these days just around the corner from St Peter's church and although we have never found any direct cross -over between the two sides of the family I do wonder if there are connections between the two lots.

- [Quine] September 24, 2007 --- "Harry Quine and Helen Quine in Manchester England" --- Hi-- I'm researching my family genealogy and am trying to locate relatives of Harry and Helen Quine. Helen was the daughter of Alexander and Isabel (Cannell) Robertson from Douglas, Isle of Man. Harry and Helen had two
children, Annette and Richard. I believe the family lived in Manchester,England. Thanks for any help and information about this family. Regards, Ruth A. Burgoine -- ruthie64 (at) juno.com
Ruth - My regrets that I don't have information about the Quine family in England. I suggest checking with the Isle of Man Family History Society - they are very active and have a lot of information about the Quine family. There is a link in the first paragraph at my web site:

- [Quine] September 26, 2007 --- "Pronounciation of Quine" --- Dear Sir, Are the letters between [ ] meant as phonetical symbols? Is Quine pronounced as 'kwinn' or as 'kwain'? 'You ask good questions. Our name is pronounced as [kwine].' Best regards, Kees van Hage --- email: kvhage (at) xs4all.nl
Dear Kees, Yes, the letters are intended as a pronounciation guide. Quine is NOT pronounced as 'kwinn' or as 'kwain' but rather, as it is spelled, to rhyme with the similarly spelled English words: dine, fine, line, mine, nine, pine, sine, tine, vine, and wine. There is another (much more common) name "Quinn" which would be pronounced 'kwinn'. Best regards - Doug
- [Quine] January 12, 2008 --- "What a treasure!" --- Dear Dr. Quine,
We came across your websites today while doing some lazy geneological browsing on the internet regarding our family surname, Quine.
Unfortunately, we come from a branch of the family tree that was not forthcoming regarding the details of its ancestry. My family is, in fact, quite small. Just myself, (a balding 52 year-old man) my lovely wife and my brilliant son, with some cousins nearby.
Just thought we would would introduce ourselves, now that we know you are out there. While our information is sketchy, should there be any component of it that would assist you in your research, please let us know.
James Francis Quine IV --- jamesquine (at) verizon.net
Are you or your family by chance located near Akron, Ohio? I know that there were Manx immigrants there including my great-grandfather's family.
Best regards - Doug
- [Quine] July 19, 2008 --- "Quine in Ireland" --- Hi,
My name is Kathleen Fitzsimons and my grandfather was called John Quine Evans. The story of his name is that the Quine bit was to keep his mothers name alive. Unlike other entries he has, as far as I know no Isle of Man connections but then I never heard anyone speak about his mother. I know there is a Welsh connection but my mother Audrey Eleanor Evans was born in Liverpool. The family had a house in Ireland which they came to each summer but when the war broke out my grandfather sent the family to Ireland (Ardglass). He was in the Medical Corps during the war and stayed on in England afterwards until he retired and joined the family in Ardglass- Ainley House. He died in the 1960s. Does any of this sound familiar to you?

As far as we can tell, Quine is uniquely from the Isle of Man (Manx). I'll bet that when you find more information about your great grandmother that you'll find a Manx connection. Quine is a very rare name in most places - but there are pages of them in the small Isle of Man phone book.

Rodolfo - I've recently had several inquiries regarding "Quine" family members in Central America, South America, and the Pacific. I suspect that there may be a coincidental spelling which is unrelated to the Manx (Isle of Man near England) family of my ancestors. How far back and where can you trace your Quine family name?
Regards - Doug

- [Quine] April 16, 2010 --- Quine Boynton --- Hello I was looking at your family tree and was very interested as I was adopted by
William and Nora Quine (nee Gunn) in 1948. My fathers ancestors hailed from the Isle
of Mann. I have since located my biological mother in Nottingham UK and found out
that my biological father was James Boynton from Nottingham UK.
So you can see why the Boynton Quine interested me. James Boynton died around
2000 in Nottingham leaving behind a wife and 2 daughters. I have not tried to locate
them. Regards, Elspeth Hibbert --- elspeth.hibbert (at) yahoo.co.uk
Elspeth, Thanks so much for your message. I must admit that you’re the first person outside my immediate
family that I’ve ever heard from with both a Boynton and a Quine connection! I gather that you’re a
resident of the UK and therefore are connected to Quine and Boynton families that remained in the
UK / Isle of Man (rather than those who came to America). Best regards – Doug
