Tierney family Westmeath

Classification: Query
Surnames: Tierney, Hicks
I am looking for any information on the Tierney family. Matthew Tierney and Jane Tierney (née Hicks) born 1789 emigrated from County Westmeath to London, UK between 1808 and 1823.

They had 4 boys whose names and birthdates were:

Michael Tierney (born 1808) County Westmeath, Ireland
Peter (born 1823 in St Lukes, Middlesex, England). This is my great-grandfather.
Matthew George (born 1826 St Lukes, Middlesex, England) and
John Thomas (born 1833) St Lukes, Middlesex, England.


I know that the family was Roman Catholic and that Matthew senior’s occupation was a cooper or barrel maker.

I am stuck with not knowing where in Westmeath they lived. I cannot find a record of when or where Matthew married Jane, but it is stated on her death certificate ‘widow of Matthew’.
I have been unable to find records of the births or baptisms of the boys; all information is from UK census records 1841, 1851, 1861 and death certificates.
I know that Michael was indicted for assault in London and transported to Australia in 1834.

Anyone looking for Tierney's and has any information on this family, or extended family would be appreciated. Thank you.
