UK areas of Staffordshire (Newcastle under Lyme), St. Helens/Haydock, Lancashire (Newton-le-Willows) and Liverpool, from the 1850s-1900s time frame (before and after) PlEASE CONTACT ME! My maternal GF John CARLON married Catherine, nee HUGHES sometime late 1800s (probably 1890 /- 10 years) from census returns stated originally from Ireland. Family lore has origin of CARLON from in or around Co. Mayo either Knock or Kiltimaugh, possibly around or after the famine. Catherine Hughes was possibly from the UK or Ireland and family moved from Newcastle under Lyme to HAYDOCK. Had daughters Annie, Catherine, and Margaret. All the sisters left for USA. Anyone with ANY CARLON History or information of this surname is very much encouraged to contact me as I am trying to write and ascertain the complete surname history, its basis in the UK and Ireland. Any information, clues, lore, or stories (*anything*) will be greatly appreciated (no matter how insignificant you think it is please pass this information on) as any family "lore" or stories may help and so these can be recorded into a comprehensive story of the surname that is being written for publication! Thanks so much! Murph_ Important Note: The author of this message may not be subscribed to this list.
