Coffee (Coffey, Coffy) Families Identified in the 1871 Leeds Civil Parish, Leeds North Sub Registration District, Yorkshire, England and Research into their Irish Origins

Liverpool was the port of entry for the vast majority of the Irish that departed the Connaght Counties of Mayo, Roscommon and Sligo and Galway. Many Irish immigrants unable to find work in Liverpool were drawn to places like Manchester, Bradford and Leeds and their thriving textile and other industrial development in the mid 19th century.

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. The vast majority of earlier census records fail to give a place name of origin in Ireland.

Possible Corcorans in this Parish: District 31 had a Family indexed as Thomas and Catherine Eweron that could possibly be a Corceron Family. He was an Iron Work Laborer and they had two children born in Leeds, Mary 4 and Ann age 3.

I am documenting specific details on the Irish born in Districts 1-10, 11-21, 22-32, 33-44, 45-56, 57-70 plus the Leeds Cavalry Barracks and District Moral and Industrial School for Pauper Children of the Leeds Civil Parish, and the Leeds Workhouse of Leeds North Sub-Registration District of the 1871 Census on separate pages to facilitate a shorter download time. This is a work in progress!
