You are amazing!! Thank you so much. You filled in some gaps and confirmed some of my own findings. Now I have fresh leads to work on.
I didn't realise they (Heagneys) filtered out to Glen Innes.Most descendants (and there are a lot!) still reside in the Guyra and Armidale areas. What I am confused about is if Martin was a well respected farming and grazier, then what is this business about being sent out here as a political prisoner?
Also interesting, Norman has the same birth reg. no. and year as William. So they were twins! Awesome.
