Gahagan (Goghan, Goaghan, Geoghegan, Gaughan) Families (and all surname variations) Identified in the 1841 Leeds Town Civil Parish, Leeds North 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.

I have documented specific details on the Irish born in Districts 9-47 and Leeds Town Workhouse of the Leeds Town Civil Parish, Leeds North Sub-Registration District of the 1841 Census on a separate page to facilitate a shorter download time.
