I am trying to locate information about this family pre Australia . Michael Honan senior birth I am estimating about 1790. Had 3 sons that I know of perhaps more children. Thomas-b-1805,Patrick -b-1815 and Michael jnr b-1811.Trying to find out the Irish History of this family. Who was Michael seniors wife? The 3 sons were tried in 1834 in Waterford and sentenced to 7 years and sent to Australia aboard the Hero .If anyone out there knows any of this family's history or are related to this family  or can point me in the right direction I would really appreciate it. Thank you Hereford

To Hereford,
Do you know where in Co Waterford the Honans lived before going to Australia.
Civil registration of births started in Ireland 1864.
Do you know Denomination of Honan family?
Part of family may have remained in Ireland
The Tithe defaulters list may be worth a search (1830's)
Tithes were a tax on arable land paid to State Church.
