my grandmother (Bridget Tully of Galway) married Edmund timothy Hehir in Australia around 1904. He died 1932. I have no knowledge of his past. If you do please let me know.

While I haven't found anything on an Edmund Timothy Hehir, one of the postings below refers to a "Ned" Hehir who left Co. Clare with his brother for Australia in the mid-1870's. He was likely born before 1850, which would make him a bit old for a 1904+/- marriage, but....?

I'm not clear whether you're writing from Australia or elsewhere, but have you checked with the Australian government for (1) a death certificate which might provide details
on his birth date and parents or (2) immigration records.

Good luck, Bill

Edmund Hehir

My great-grandmother Ellen Heheir (note spelling)had a brother called Edmund who was 2 in 1861 (he was born in London). Their grandfather was Timothy Heheir, and another brother Timothy had died at the age of 2 in 1847. Probably all coincidence, but perhaps worth noting in case any other details turn up. Certainly Edmund seems to disappear from UK before end of 19th century.

Your Edmund Timothy was born 1875 at Caniambo, Shepparton, Vic to parents Patrick Joseph Hehir and Johanna Leahy. Edmund married Bridget Marie Tully 1903 Subiaco, WA. He died 20 Jun 1932 Port Hedland, WA and is buried in the Karrakatta RC Cemetery along with his wife who died 24Apr1972 at Wembley, WA. Patrick Joseph b1838 County Galway married Johanna Leahy and died 1921 Prahan, Vic. Johanna, born 1846 County Tipperary, died 1877 Victoria. They had Mary Theresa b1873 Melbourne and died 30 Jul 1921 Wooroloo, WA and is buried in the Karrakatta RC Cemetery; and Edmund Timothy (as above). I am pretty sure that Patrick Joseph then married Margaret Maria Connoly 1884 Vic.
