Brennan Families (and all Surname Variations) Identified in the 1851 Wolverhampton Civil Parish, Wolverhampton Eastern Subregistration District, Staffordshire, England and Research into their Irish Origins

It is clear that a significant number of the Irish Immigrants in Wolverhampton, England originated from the Connaught areas of County Mayo, Roscommon, Sligo and Galway.

Omissions: There was a record indexed for a Henry and Catherine Bennett which almost looks like Brennen (District 1ii). Henry was a clerk for a Canal company and was born in Wombarne (Wombourn?), Staffordshire.

Keep in mind that the connections I draw are what appear to me to be the same family and need to be further analyzed to make sure the conclusion is correct (hopefully with supporting evidence such as GRO marriage records and baptismal records). Please use this information with that caveat in mind so that nothing is assumed and no stones are left unturned to assure it's your family and the connection is accurate.

I am documenting specific details on the Irish-born in the Districts 1a-1z plus the Union Workhouse of the Wolverhampton, Wolverhampton Eastern Sub Registration District in the 1851 Census on a separate page to facilitate a shorter download time.
