I am looking for Mary Heenan, the daughter of John Heenan (or Heneghan) and Margaret Kelly, she was possibly born in Australia 1848/9. She was the eldest daughter - I have been able to trace all the rest of her brothers and sister - but can find no trace of Mary.
I am also trying to find when the came to NZ - they settled on the West Coast of NZ. If there are any other Heenan family researchers out there I would love to hear from you. One of their children (Martin) was registered under the name Heneghan so Mary could be registered under either name.
Trying to establish how John and Margaret Heenan got to Australia probably with 2 children about 1862 then on what ship they came to NZ on between 1863 and 1866 with 4 children. Not sure if they came to Australia ex Ireland or UK or whether they were in
America. Any information on their travels or anything at all gratefully received

Her mother was Sarah Larcombe née Webb who married John McGinty in 1872 previous husband disapeared in 1869 the youngest child from that marriage being born in that year. Originally it was thought she was born in Dunganville on the West Coast of New Zealand but her marriage certificate (Alice) shows Clifton N I.

There were 3 sons Peter Joseph 188 - 1937, Lawrence 1891 - 1973, Patrick Bernard 1899 - ?. Johanna was buried in Hokitika on 3.2.42 and Peter in Hokitika on 30.7.31.
