Halley-Eng to Ire to Canada

Posted: 1205839632000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Halley
According to a Canadian newspaper article from late 1800's
my ggf James Lawrence Halley, B: 5 July 1835 in Waterford Cty. IRE, and his brother, Wm. B: Oct. 1831 had documents proving they were direct descendants of Sir Edmund Halley. Would like to be able to trace the connection but hitting a brick wall!
Does anyone have this info or direct me to where I might find it? Their parents names were Nicholas and Catherine (Dunphy) Halley. Nicholas was born in England, immigrated to Ire and then to Canada w/wife and childrent.
