There were the following Neil / O'Neil children baptised for parents called Arthur and Mary in the RC parish of Avoca, County Wicklow, Ireland - Jane or James in 1828; Nicholas in 1830, Margaret in 1832, Honora in 1835, and Arthur in 1837 - is this a possibility?

Eg. Margaret on 22 July 1832 (right page):

I think this could be them. Margaret ONeil was born in 1832. And the boat transcript says they were from Wicklow. Thank you so much.

Is that South Australia or South Africa?

Added: If Australia, is it correct that you don't need anything regarding any of the family members after their arrival?

Then it would be a good idea to either move this thread to the Australia board or start a new one and move this one to Ireland. 

Possible marriage for Nicholas which is the only one popping up for me:

1858 33/265 ONEILL Nicholas to MCMANAMIE Margaret Mount Barker

Children, but I don't know what to make of the first one's mother's name:

1864   30/667 ONEIL Margaret parents Nicholas ONEIL and Maria DENANDS Strathalbyn    

1865   35/143 ONEILL Margaret parents Nicholas ONEILL and Margaret MCMANELY Strathalbyn    

1865   35/143 ONEILL Anne parents Nicholas ONEILL and Margaret MCMANELY Strathalbyn

1868   71/425 ONEIL William parents Nicholas ONEIL and Margaret MANME Strathalbyn    

1871   92/271 ONEIL Thomas parents Nicholas ONEIL and Margaret AMY Strathalbyn    

1873   122/547 ONEILL Sarah paents Nicholas ONEILL and Margaret MCMANARY Strathalbyn    

1875   157/279 ONEIL Nicholas parentsvNicholas ONEIL   and Margrett MACMANAY Strathalbyn

Of course this is all only relevant if one can confirm that the father Nicholas is of your ancestors.
