House of Keys 1417 to Date - Alphabetical

The following list of members of the House of Keys has been taken from that prepared by H.M. Attorney General for the Isle of Man (Mr R. B. Moore) and presented to the Speaker of the House (Speaker Clucas) in 1933. Since then it has been kept up to date and serves as an unofficial Roll of Members of the House.

Our records do not go back beyond 1417, although it is obvious from the Customary Laws Act 1417, which contains an account of Tynwald prepared for the guidance of the King of Mann, that the Keys is of much earlier origin.

Written records exist from 1417 and the Roll of Members is compiled from (1) the Acts of Tynwald from 1417; (2) the Liber Scaccari from 1585; and (3) the Liber Juratorum from 1775.

Those from the first source are unfortunately incomplete; many members of the House of Keys did not sign any Act of Tynwald. However, it is thought that from the beginning of the Liber Scaccari in 1585 the list is complete. An asterisk against the name of a member indicates that an amendment has been made to correct an error in the Roll of Members.
