Michael HEFFERNAN son of Aeneas/Eneas HEFFERNAN & Mary McCORMICK of Ennis, Co Clare & Mary O'DEA daughter of Sylvester O'DEA and Catherine FELL married [according to Michael's death Certificate] in or about 1849.  

Michael & Mary immigrated to Victoria Australia as yet date unknown.

Im looking for Michael and Mary's ancestors anda date of marriage if at all possible.  A refernce may or maynotbe accurate that Mary was born at Bishopwood, Co Tipperary around 1833 +/- 2 years

Regards,

Marie

  • Marie:

    I was not able to locate the Michael Heffernan/Mary O'Dea marriage record and I searched on two subscription sites-- Roots Ireland and FindMyPast.ie

    I did not locate Michael's baptismal record but did find baptismal records for some siblings in the Doora/Barefield RC parish in Co. Clare. Doora/Barefield baptismal records start in March 1821 so possibly Michael was baptized before 1821  https://registers.nli.ie/parishes/0780

    John Heffernan baptized August 14 1828 at Doora/Barefield father Aeneas Heffernan and mother Mary McCormick-sponsors Patrick Heffernan and Honora McCormick

    Patrick Heffernan baptized September 16 1831 at Doora/Barefield same parents one sponsor Nora McCormick

    Martin Heffernan baptized October 10 1832 Doora/Barefield same parents witnesses Andrew O'Neil Mary Holeran

    Not sure if this is the same family--Thomas Heffernan baptized June 12 1839 Doora Barefield father Andrew Heffernan and mother Mary McCormick witnesses Matthew Clancy and Hanna McCormack.

    I did not find any records for the O'Dea family.

  • Marie:

    I forgot to mention that the Heffernan family lived in Gauras townland in Doora civil parish.

    Here is a link to the 1855 Griffiths Valuation head of household listing for Doora civil parish and you can see Aeneas in Gauras.

    There was a second Aeneas Heffernan which possibly is a different person or your Aeneas has a second holding.

    There are O'Deas in the parish but no Sylvester.
