Corcoran Families (and all Surname Variations) Traveling from Liverpool, Lancashire, England, Arriving in the Port of New York, U.S.A. in th Third Quarter of 1851, Documented in Ship Passenger and Port Arrival Lists

A large percentage of the Irish that emigrated from the Connaught areas of Mayo, Roscommon, Galway, Sligo and Leitrim departed from the Liverpool Port in Lancashire, England. The ship passenger lists are an important part of our genealogical research-the link that "gets us across the pond" from America to Europe. It is perhaps the biggest gap in my own Brennan/Corcoran genealogical research that I have yet to find them in the "Famine Ship" passenger lists. I know that they traveled in either 1851 or 1852 so I am beginning my record analysis with these two years. The Surname Corcoran was not one of the 25 most prevalent surnames in Ireland (unlike the Surname Brennan) but the task can still be quite intimidating, but none the less an important search to undertake! I will be creating this compilations based on my findings from viewing the actual passenger manifests and not someone else's transcriptions unless otherwise noted. Keep in mind that this is a work in progress! These compilations will be added to over time as I uncover new resources (online, books etc) with new data. In addition to ancestry.com's wonderful database on New York Passenger Lists, Family Search has an amazing on line database of images from New York Passenger Lists 1820-1897 that is searchable by year.

It is my objective to not only find my second great grandparents Martin Brennan and Catherine Corcoran but to help me identify other Brennan, Corcoran, Coffee, and Gahagan families that may have immigrated from Mayo or Roscommon to Liverpool and on to New York in the Passenger and Port lists so that I might be able to link them with Mayo and Roscommon Church records, English Census Records and U.S. Census Records. I welcome feedback and collaboration with other Genealogists researching their Brennan/Corcoran/Coffee and Gahagan roots to link these families together and find our shared ancestry!

Corcorans on the Brg Malvina out of Westport: If Westport is referring to the one in County Mayo then the Corcorans on board this ship are worth mentioning despite the fact that Liverpool isn't mentioned as a port of call. They include Catharine Corcoran a 28 year old servant, 2 children Bridget 14, Thomas 11 and an infant Michael 11 (I assume this is 11 months as he is listed as an infant). They arrived in New York on August 29, 1851.

Surname Variations that are phonetically similar or spelled somewhat like Corcoran that are worth noting: Cath Cronerin arrived on the Anarctic September 18, 1851. There was a Mary Coghan and a James Coghans on the Trumbull that arrived September 18. There was a John Coachlan that arrived on the Empire Queen September 20, 1851. The following were noted on the Ship Isaac Webb that arrived on September 20, 1851: John Coran as well as Patk and Ellen Corlan. Cath Cockin arrived on the Constellation September 5. William Cougheran arrived on the Ship America July 7, 1851.

These Records will be presented first by month of arrival, alphabetically by ship name and then the "clusters" of Corcorans that appear to have traveled together will be presented alphabetically by given name. If you think you see your family in this compilation, make a point to secure the original record from available sources such as ancestry.com to make your own assessment because they may be traveling with friends, have luggage data or other information that I have not included in this compilation that may open up your whole tree!
