Following a post I made in the Isle of Man Family History Society's Facebook group, a descendant of John Karran Maltby Kerruish mentioned that he "fought in the Boer War in the British Army, he took his discharge in South Africa, became Principal of School and died in Hospital during the Spanish 'flu outbreak."
Is anything further known about him, and also about F. Kerruish, who was connected with 'steam road transport'?
I don't think they were brothers Berenice. But possible related through the IoM Kerruish somewhere down the line?
A couple of extra details from a family tree. The information does mention the 17th Lancers connection. However, further research required IMHO on that.
His Captaincy was probably connected to the cadet force which may have been linked to the university.
You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.

They were not brothers; I am ignorant as to how closely related they were however before 1600 it appears that all Kerruishes were related to each other but since records were not kept so closely at that date we have no definitive proof. The timeline shown for JKM appears to have been taken from my public Ancestry Tree, I am OK with this. The entry regarding him being back on the Island working as a Grocer is an entry that I missed. His father was John Kerruish the Coroner, my own ggf. At the moment of writing I do not know where in the family F. Kerruish fits though I do suspect the F stands for Frederick there are three who would fit the dates.
