Coffee (Coffey, Coffy) Families Identified in the 1851 Liverpool, Howard Sub Registration District, Lancashire, England and Research into their Irish Origins

It is clear that a significant number of the Irish Immigrants in Liverpool Lancashire originated from the Connaught areas of County Mayo and County Roscommon, Ireland. This may be the final destination for a few, a stop on the way to search for work for others and a starting point of a journey abroad for many more.

Regarding the John and Ann Coffee family: There is a possibly link from this family in 1851 to a family in the 1861 Kirkdale Civil Parish, Liverpool Municipal Borough, District 71 census. John Coffey 38, his wife 45, daughter Mary Ann 14 and son Thomas 12 (all born in Ireland) who were living on Scherwins Place Eskholm. There are some age discrepancies with the parents but not the children. This would need to be confirmed with further research.
