I offer this information because of the spelling of Flannigan, the time period, and the fact that your Flannigans may have gone to England. My gggrandmother was
Ann Flannigan Clifford. Her marriage certificate indicates that her father was John Flannigan. She came to Scranton from Abersycham, County Monmouth, England. That county is
adjacent to Wales and it was generally referred to as part of South Wales. She was married there in St. Alban's R.C.
Church. The civil district is Pontypool. Both she and her husband had come from Ireland. I would estimate that her family left in the late 1840s or early 1850s. She emigrated with her husband to the U.S. in 1862. Scranton was a steel making area and they recruited people from South Wales who had experience in the steel mills there.
On one census record she is said to have come from Cork, but
her granddaughter told me that she had said she came from the lakes of Killarney. There may be somthing in that that you can use. Contact me at KAMURRIN@aol.com if you have any questions.
