Query Text:

I am looking for any information on the Tierney family. Matthew Tierney and Jane Tierney (nee Hicks) born 1789 emigrated from County Westmeath to London, UK between 1808 and 1823. They had 8 children whose names and birthdates were: Ann Walsh nee Tierney (born 1809) County Westmeath Michael Tierney (born 1810) County Westmeath, Ireland George (born 1816) Moorfields, Middlesex Peter (born 1823 in St Lukes, Middlesex, England). This is my great-grandfather. Matthew George (born 1826 St Lukes, Middlesex, England) and John Thomas (born 1833) St Lukes, Middlesex, England. plus 2 others names unknown I know that the family was Roman Catholic and that Matthew senior's occupation was a cooper or barrel maker. I have hit a 'brickwall' with not knowing where in Westmeath they lived. I cannot find a record of when or where Matthew married Jane, but it is stated on her death certificate "widow of Matthew". I have been unable to find all records of the births or baptisms of the children; all information is from UK census records 1841, 1851, 1861 and death certificates and St Mary Moorfields church records. I know that Michael was indicted for assault in London and transported to Australia in 1834. Any information on this family and their life in Finsbury/Islington, London or Ireland would be appreciated. Thank you. Sue Osborne nee Tierney
