William Shaw & Mary Jordan: Burns family history

Like to find information about my great-grandparents William Shaw born 1779 Tipperary Ireland & Mary Jordan born19/03/1820 Wexford Ireland. They married Geelong Victoria 1841 I believe. Possibly William was a seaman ? Anyway would be great to know something of their early years in Ireland & wherever they landed & lived on arrival in Australia. Both died in 1885 & are buried in Harrow Victoria.

Background information for Jane Burns nee Shaw married Henry William Burns

Any newspaper items, photos etc about my paternal grandmother & life in those times.
I do know she was born 1860 in Hotspur Vic.also believe her parents William Shaw & Mary Shaw nee Jordan both died at Harrow Vic. Any info of them too would help fill in picture especially of my grandmother's early years.
