Before the start of civil registration you are dependant on church records for baptisms and marriages. Many records are available online (both free and pay sites) but not all records survive and of those that do still exist not all are online.

For reference- marriage (1859)- this is only n extract the actual marriage certificate will contain more detail-

Francis Mateer and Elizabeth Keenan had at least 2 sons after 1864- there could be others-
Edward (1866) https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FP3V-ZFP
Francis (1869) https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FPYW-CBY

Since 1801 is only a guess this death for a Hugh Mateer in 1865 is a possibility based on age and location-

This looks very promising!
Graham Susanna Hugh Mateer Margaret Mateer Ballymullen Blaris Castlereagh Down 1851 Family: Frances 11yrs?, Letitia 14, Susanna 4 or 7yrs, Annie?yrs.

Explanation- Susanna Graham applied for Old Age Pension. 1851 census (later destroyed) recorded Hugh and Margaret Mateer in the townland of Ballymullen, Blaris, Castlereagh, Co. Down with family-
Francis (age 11- born c1839), Letitia (age 14), Susanna (age 4 or 7?), Annie.

Unfortunately it doesn't want to show up for me in a search here-
