Michael Healey/Healy is my Great Grandfather, he came out to New Zealand in 1857 and married Grace Ellen Doherty in 1858. Michael's parents were Patrick Healy and Mary (Bryan, O'Brien,O'Brienne) very hard to tell.
Somewhere along the line Michael surname became Healey as are all his children (18 of them). I am in contact with a New Zealand decendant of Michael's brother John. If you go to the website www.healyclan.org
