Kerrigan family in Manchester

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date

Anita Report 14 Mar 2013 16:14

In 1881 Honora Kerrigan widow age 41 charwoman born Ireland was living in Back Irk Street Manchester with three children and three lodgers.
By 1891 her son John Joseph had married Mary Jones and had a daughter also called Honora.
Can anyone find any of these people in 1891? Honora died in 1894 still in Manchester.
I have tried numerous routes including Herrigan which was put in the birth entry of the child Honora in 1891.
Last gasp as it's for a friend.
Thanks
Anita

??? Have looked at Honora's born c 1841 living in Manchester, this is the only one coming up anywhere near. The original is poor writing, not Kerrigan, but could be it was misheard and so mis spelt. Not seeing an Honora Karran 1881/1901, nor in deaths.

The birth is Honora, Lancs BMD reads name as Herrigan. Yes I think that is Patrick in 1891 and Stuart what a find ! the district is the same as 1881 and the rest fits age, PoB and status. Honora is an unusual name so I think you have found her.
Thank you all
