Corcoran Families Identified in the Kilfian Roman Catholic Parish Records, County Mayo, Ireland

Kilfian Roman Catholic Parish covers Kilfian Civil Parish in County Mayo, Ireland. There were only 50 Townlands in Kilmoremoy Civil Parish when the Griffith's Valuation was conducted in 1856. I have also seen it referred to as Kilfian and Rathreagh Catholic Parish. Church records for this Catholic Parish are found on LDS microfilm number 1279205 and cover the years 1826-1844. Only one Roman Catholic Chapel was identified in the Griffith's Valuation and that was in the Townland of Kincon. There were no graveyards listed for this Civil Parish.

I have created a specific webpages on the following topics that may be of interest to descendents whose ancestors hailed from Kilfian in County Mayo: a page on the the Townlands of Kilfian, the Characteristics of Kilfian and a page on the Corcorans in the Kilfian Griffith's Valuation (There were Corcorans in five different Townlands in Kilfian- Keerglen, Annagh More, Rathglass and Seeaghanbaun and Seeaghandoo).

I have done my best to correctly transcribe these records, but after five or so hours behind a microfilm reader, the likelihood of mistakes in both interpretation and transcription most certainly increases. I have the microfilm and item number on which the records were found so you can confirm the information. In an attempt to minimize download times I have limited the information presented on each family. The records in this section will document Baptisms (B) and Marriages (M). I also have documented all of the baptisms and marriages sponsored/witnessed by Corcorans; although these are not included online, they can yield valuable clues such as "circles of friends" and possible Townlands that might provide a missing link. There are additional details in these records such as date of birth, sponsors, priests, and at times notes in the margin detailing marriages and deaths. If you feel that your family is in this compilation, please feel free to contact me and I will share with you the additional details.
