Does anyone have any information about the Harrigans that came to England at the time of the potato famine? There is a lot written about those that went to USA/Canada but not England. I have been trying to trace my father's side of the Harrigan family and have been able to go back to a James Harrigan who married Margaret Driscol on December 23rd 1851 in Stepney, London. He was born around 1822, in Poplar, London, (according to the 1881 census).
So far I have been unable to find any details of his birth. No records as early as this are kept at the Public Record Office in London. I am currently writing to the Catholic Churches to search Baptism Records. I am fairly certain the family originated in Cork, Ireland and would love to find that connection.
Would love to hear from anyone with any details. Please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
