Larvin [possibly Lavin] from Carrick on Shannon
« on: Monday 05 September 11 13:41 BST (UK) »
Good evening.

I am researching the Larvin family who settled in Birmingham possibly between 1851 and 1861. I have the 1871 Census and it lists:

Edward and Mary Larvin [spelt Lavin on Census] with 3 children, his mother, Bridget, 2 nieces and brother John.

I don't know who suggested Carrick on Shannon in the family but that is all I have. The 3 children are down as being born in Birmingham but I haven't found entries yet. They are Ann, Catherine and John.

TIA

Diane

My great grandfather Thaddeus (Timothy) Lavin (b1851) was from Danesfort/Killukin nr Carrick on Shannon. His father was a farmer, Edward and mother, Margaret Currigan/Cunningham. Edward's father was Thaddeus Lavin (b abt 1790) also from that area and Edward's mother, Margaret Cain/Keogh. Timothy settled in St Helens, Lancashire in the late 1870s or so. I understand that Timothy came to England with other family members of of his generation, but I have not heard of any Midlands connection - the family's knowledge is sketchy however. Lavin/Laven/Lavan is, I understand, a Connaught surname. It seems several  Roscommon Lavins settled in Lancashire from the mid to late 1800s. Some are likely to be be related, but it is quite difficult to work out if relationships exist between the various Roscommon Lavins in Lancashire. Sorry I can't be of any further help.
