Archdeacon Will 1670A #114 Maughold, of Mally xxxx alias Callow, dated 16 March 1670/1: 
Summary:  dau Isabel xxxx, son in law John Christian, witnesses: Robert Callow & Edward Christian & John Christian
Maughold parish register:  Maryed Callow    buried   8 March 1670/1

NOTE: Parish register lists her as 'Maryed Callow' at her burial, but Will clearly names her Mally Callow. 
Question: Is this an instance of confusion due to nicknames?  Maryed means 'little Mary', and Mally is a Manx nickname for 'Mary'.
