COFFEY from St Marylebone, England

looking for some further information on my ancestor Michael Coffey.

I think he was born circa 1820 but possibly earlier.

He married Hariet EMERTON 15 Sep 1834 at St Marylebone, witnesses were Ann Emerton and Wm Coffey.

Her details are Harriet Emerton
Birth 5 Mar 1814 in Lambeth
Death Mar 1867 in Sussex, United Kingdom

I think they had 2 daughters that I know of

Catherine Ann Coffey
Birth 22 Jul 1835 in England

Elizabeth Coffey
Birth 10 Nov 1838 in St Marylebone, London, England
Death 9 Aug 1923 in Grafton, New South Wales, Australia (Elizabeth Klotz)

I am a descendent of Elizabeth, I think she came to Australia on the Blenheim in 1855.

Any further information about Michael or his parents would be greatly appreciated.
