Corcorans documented as being born in County Mayo, Ireland in the 1871 Lancashire County, England Census Records

Documentation of the County of Birth in Ireland was fairly uncommon in the earlier years of the England Census records but was noted on occasion and increased after the 1851 census. This is a work in progress that I will add to over time.

These records are in no means complete. as I have not had time to go through the individual districts of Lancashire at this point. I've noticed that on many occasions a Townland was given in these records (such as Castlebar, Ireland). This record would not show up on a search of Brennans born in Mayo, Ireland even though Castlebar is in County Mayo. I have also seen many individuals give their Roman Catholic Parish as a place of birth in Ireland. Athalone, a Catholic Parish in County Roscommon wouldn't show up in a search of those living in England born in County Roscommon either. These factors and the incorrect interpretation of the census taker's handwriting pose serious challenges to this search. Betsy Brannan was listed as being born in Ancommon, Ireland; however, a quick look at the record showed her place of birth clearly as Roscommon, Ireland. As I get time I will go through the districts of the England Counties that have the greatest concentrations of County Mayo born immigrants and add to these records.

Possible Corcorans from Mayo: There was a Thomas Corcoran and his wife Catherine in Lancashire, Liverpool, District 2. Thomas is listed as being born in Castletown. There is a Castletown in Co Mayo as well as County Roscommon (and 18 other Civil Parishes as well), but because his wife is from West Meath, it is likely referring to County Meath so this family is not included in this compilation.
