Gahagan (Goghan, Goaghan, Geoghegan, Gaughan) Families (and all variations of the Surname) Identified in the Leeds, Yorkshire, England Census Records, Possible Origins in Ireland and Links Between the Census Years

The Surname Gahagan and numerous variations are scattered throughout the different districts of the Leeds, Yorkshire, England Census Records. The majority of these Brennan families are documented as being born in Ireland. Some of the later census years begin giving counties of birth. It is my objective in this section to analyze the various Gahagan Families found in the Leed Civil Parish, Yorkshire England Census records between 1841 and 1911 to look for possible origins and connections between the lines. This is a work in progress and will be added to as I work my way through the census. My intention is to try to identify migration trails from Ireland.

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). They are something to build upon and prove. I would welcome all feedback on this effort. Only through input from other Corcorans will we find how we might all be related.

I have identified specific details on the Irish documented in the 1841 census records for Leeds Civil Parish (Holbeck Sub Reg District) and Leeds Town Civil Parish (Kirkgate and Leeds North) in separate pages.

This is a work in progress!
