Honora Lane (Morrissey)

Honora Lane was born in 1842/3 in Limerick, Ireland to John Lane and Kate Connor/Conor.

She married Edmond Morrissey in Limerick and settled in Brosna, Co. Kerry, where she gave birth to 9 children before the family emigrated to Australia in 1881 as part of the Assisted Immigrants Scheme. During the voyage she gave birth to their second last child, Honora.

The family eventually settled in Jamberoo, NSW, after their 10th child, Johanna, was born at Kiama in 1882. Honora died at Paddington on the 26th March, 1921, just 8 years before her eldest child Mary.
