McManamon and McMahon family

Journal by Corky44

Patrick McManamon was born between 1831 and 1837 in Ballycroy, County Mayo. He came over to England in 1861 as a result of the potato famine in Ireland. He married Bridget in 1862 in Preston, England. Patrick and Bridget both worked in the Cotton Mill in Preston. Between 1864 and 1868 they had 3 children, Thomas, Ann and Bryan. In the 1871 census it shows the family living at an address in School Yard in Preston. I believe the family left the Preston area in 1871 or 1872 and moved back to Ballycroy in County Mayo, Ireland. Bryan the son returned to Preston in the early 1890`s. He married Mary McKeown and they lived in Preston until 1913. After this date the family moved to the Southport and Liverpool area.
For some reason the surname changed when Bryan returned from Ireland to Preston from McManamon to McMahon. The rest of the family remained as McManamon.
I believe a couple of family members emigrated to America and the rest remained in Ireland.

My friend's husband, now deceased, was a McMahon. His people came over from Ireland in the late 1800's or early 1900's - his branch settled in the DeWitt, Clinton Co., Iowa area. His parents moved to the Seattle, WA. area. I can get more info if anyone needs it.
