Gahagan (Goaghan, Goghan, Geoghegan, Gaughan) Families who were Present in a Variety of Different Huddersfield, Yorkshire England records

A thorough analysis of the 1851 Huddersfield Census records has not revealed any Gahagans or other variants of the surname. I have however, identified them in a variety of other record collections that would indicate they were present in Huddersfield at one time or another. I identified my third great grandparents in my second great grandparents 1849 Huddersfield Marriage record. They were Michael Brannan, Biddy Coffee, Patrick Corcoran and Mary Gahagan. The objective of this page is to try to identify the origins of other Gahagans who passed through Huddersfield and the neighboring areas in West Yorkshire such as Bradford and Leeds etc to see if they might be related to my great grandparents and shared common ancestral trails from County Mayo and Roscommon, Ireland. About 13 miles away in neighboring Bradford, West Yorkshire, I identified a cluster of Gohagans (Michael, Catherine, ) living with Michael Corcoran and his family who were all next door to the Patrick and Onery Brenan Family on Nail Bark Street. All of them were born in Ireland but I have yet to be able to trace any of them beyond this entry in the Bradford Census. Please contact me if you feel that your Gahagans might have passed through this are of West Yorkshire so that we can pool our information!

As indicated by the records I have identified below, there clearly were several families passing through Huddersfield between 1836 and 1890.
