Mary/Maria Hedican/Hedigan and her father Martin Hedican/Hedigan and mother Mary McNamara.

Mary/Maria was born in County Clare in 1847; Ancestry has her father Martin age 18 and her mother Mary age 22. Mary emigrated to Australia at some time during 1859 - 1863 but there is no record of her parents going to Australia. She may have accompanied a family as a servant.

A lot of conflicting information on numerous websites that have a Martin Hedican/Hedigan marrying several times.

Would appreciate any information.


Maria/Mary Hedican/Hedigan

Have been researching Maria who was born in 1847 in County Clare; father Martin and Mother Mary/Margaret nee McNamara.

On Ancestry a small screen pops up saying she was born in 1837 not 1847. She married John Phillip Harper in Ballarat, Victoria, Australia in 1869.

Have been advised she went to Australia when she was 12 or 13 but have checked shipping records and cannot find the Hedican/Hedigan family anywhere.

Any help will be very much appreciated.
