Rev Rex Kissack writes on page 1 of his book:
SEED OF ISAAC
A Family History of the Kissacks of the Isle of Man
Though this book was written as an entry for the "Seven Hundred" Competition of the Institute of Heraldic and Genealogical Studies in 1983, in which it was Highly Commended, it was always designed primarily for any who bear the name Kissack, or have it in their ancestry. It is particularly for those who no longer are in touch with the Isle of Man, where the family originates, but who wish to know something of their roots.
As such it is dedicated to my grandsons, Robert Eoghan Kissack in London England and Isaac Gregory Elon Nuell in Tennessee, USA.
I am grateful to Rex's wife, Elizabeth, for giving me permission to publish his work on the internet, and it is done for the same reason that Rex wrote in the forward of the book (as above). The "Seed of Isaac" is a book of two halves. The first part of the book is dedicated to family trees, and these are included on this site and expanded as information becomes available. The second half is what you find here, a family history of those Kissacks:
