Marianne Mann / John Hoar

I know nothing of the ancestry of Marianne Mann
Babt 15/4/1779 Godalming, Surrey, England. She married a John Hoar on 11/4/1818 at Godalming Parish of Surrey, England.
I am related to one of their children -Kezia Hoar Bapt. 30/6/1822 Godalming, Surrey, England
Kezia married a Henry Northeast on 31/3/1850
One of their children was Sarah Northeast Bapt 5/10/1864 at St John's Church Penge, England
Sarah married George Page on 1/11/1885. She died on 6/3/1920 and was buried at Long Ditton. George immigrated to Australia. He was my great grandfather.

Thomas Cantwell and Ellen McGrath

Ellen McGrath (born 8/3/1836 in Mullinahone. Parents William McGrath and Mary Meehan.)married Thomas Cantwell( born 29/3/1827 in Poulacapple, Mullinahone, Tipperary Ireland.Parents John Cantwell and Mary Walsh)
They had two children William bapt 29/1/1865 in Poulacapple Town Mullinahone and Ellen was bapt 28/5/1862
Ellen was widowed and married a second time to Martin Quirke in Mullinahone Tipperary on 7/8/1869 and had a child Bridget bapt 17/9/1870 in Mullinahone and a daughter Annie abt 1871. In March 1871 they immigrated to Victoria Australia on the Ship Cospatrick and had three more children Patrick b 1873, Elizabeth b 1876 and Catherine b 1878.
