Corcoran Families (and all surname variations) Identified in the 1851 Leeds Civil Parish, South Sub Registration District, Yorkshire, England and Research into their Irish Origins

Liverpool was the port of entry for the vast majority of the Irish that departed the Connaght Counties of Mayo, Roscommon and Sligo and Galway. Many Irish immigrants unable to find work in Liverpool were drawn to places like Manchester, Bradford and Leeds and their thriving textile and other industrial development in the mid 19th century.

Keep in mind that the connections I draw are what appear to me to be the same family and need to be further analyzed to make sure the conclusion is correct (hopefully with supporting evidence such as GRO marriage records and baptismal records). 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. The vast majority of earlier census records fail to give a place name of origin in Ireland.

Research Observations: It appears that Mary Bray married Michael Corcoran in Leeds the Quarter ending March 1851 (volume 23, page 522).

I have documented specific details on the Irish-born in Districts 1a-2e of the Leeds Civil Parish, South Sub Registration District on a separate page to reduce download time.
