Gibbons and Roycroft, Burriscarra

I am trying find out information about my ancestors, John Gibbon and Bridget Roycroft who were married in 1843 in Burriscarra R.C. Parish Church.  Their first child, Robert, was born in Ireland in 1845 before they emigrated, presumably during the Famine. This leads me to believe that Robert may have been a family name, on one side or the other.  The fathers' names were not given on the Marriage Record which I obtained from Irish Family History Foundation. Bridget may have had a sister Mary, who appears as Godmother to Bridget's daugther Margaret who was born in Liverpool, to where they had emigrated.

Roycroft is, I believe, rather a rare name, so I am hoping someone may be able to help me in my quest.

Thank you,
