CORKILL FAMILY TREE - ISLE OF MAN - 1800'S

Hi, I just found out that my great-grandfather, Evan Corkill, was born on the Isle of Man around 1827. And his father, John Corkill was born there around 1800. I was wondering if anyone else is researching this family. I have also found out that there are several variations on the spelling of this name: CORKHILL, CORNHILL, CORKILL, COCKILL. ... My great-grandmother was one of the British Home Children. Her name was Mary Elizabeth Corkill, and she was born in Liverpool, England, around 1860. And, she was shipped to Halifax, Nova Scotia, during the summer of 1875, at Age 15. She was living in Byrow Hall in Liverpool, and there were four younger Corkill children living there at the exact same time. They were Julia, Esther, John, and Robbie. I am guessing that they were all members of the same family. Possibly Mary was their older sister, but I don't know why she didn't go over on the same ship in April 1874 with her younger siblings. ..... In case anyone else is searching for "Corkhill" ancestors, there were 3 more British Home Children with the same last name.
