We are trying to find evidence of his Catholic marriage possibly in Ballyphillip between c. 1800 - 1822.
We have travelled to PRONI and Ballyphillip in Portaferry but have not located marriages or baptisms there - records not available for that period.
One of their sons Andrew was born in Ireland, we are presuming Portaferry if not elsewhere in Down in c. 1821- 1822.
The entire family left Ireland to live in IOM.

this may be the family of my GGG grandmother, Sarah Lynchey, who was sentenced on the Isle of man along with a son, Thomas. Both arrived in NSW in 1835.
I have traced sarah's life in the Colony, however Thomas is a Mystery from shortly after he was given his Ticket of Leave in 1844.
I have found anothe descendent of sarah's, a lady who lives in Cheshire, she is descended from the son Andrew who you mention and has sherd information with me.
I am happy to share any informatio with you.
