  • Hi,

    I've found 6 Thomas Corcorans on Griffith's Valuation -

    4 of these men were registed to a parish called Kilgarrylander, which is right beside Castlemaine. Perhaps you could contact the parish or search parish records for baptismal/marriage certs to get the names of more relatives?
