The 1837 muster shows that Michael and Thomas HONAN were assigned to F.M. MUNDY at St Vincent.  This man's full name is Fitzherbert Miller MUNDY.

Michael's ticket of leave document dated 7 Oct 1839 notes that he was to remain in the Braidwood district and also notes that he later held a 'ticket of leave passport' number 40/185, 40 referring to the year of issue - 1840.

A passport enabled a convict to travel outside their designated area.

Sometimes there are surviving disposal lists for passengers arriving on the bounty system.  These lists give details of who the immigrants are contracted to work for, but unfortunately I cannot see any for the ship Neptune arriving in 1841.

The information written in the family bible - can you scan the page/s and put them here for us to see?  There might be some clues.

Can you see what the names might have been written with....ball point pen would mean mid 20th century +. Usually birth entries in a bible, whenever they are made, will have day, month and year.
