Corcoran Families Identified in the 1881 Huddersfield Civil Parish, Yorkshire England Census Records and Research into their Origins in Ireland

It is clear that a significant number of the Irish Immigrants in Huddersfield England originated from the Connaught areas of County Mayo, Roscommon, Sligo and Galway. I believe my immigrant Irish Great Grandparents Martin Brannon and Cathrine Corcran were among them in the 1851 Huddersfield Census on Windsor Court of District 4. I can't be 100% certain until I delve deeper to find out what became of Mary Corcoran, Martin's mother-in-law, Mary their daughter born in 1851, Patrick, Mary's husband and a passenger record which I have been yet unable to find. The same thorough research should be used to sort through the information I present in this section. I will present subsequent records that I believe may be a match for a family in a previous census year. 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 36 Districts of Huddersfield Civil Parish, Yorkshire (plus the District Model Lodging House) in the 1881 Census on a separate page to facilitate a shorter download time.

Ommissions: I have left out what appears to be a Corker? family on Market Street in District 16a of this census. They were indexed as Carter by ancestry.com. I don't believe that this is a Corcoran variant.

This is a work in progress!
