1911 census indicates he was a naturalised British subject resident of 52 years (abt 1859)

His wife states they have been married 44 years - this would put the year of marriage at 1867 and places it within England, Scot, Wales rather than Ireland

His wife states she has been resident British subject for 50 years (approx 1861)

Marraige registered in Chorlton, Lancs in 1867 - bride’s name is Dolan.

Persons on bounty ships to Sydney, Newcastle and Moreton Bay (Board’s Immigrant Lists)
These records contain immigrant lists for Sydney, Newcastle, and Moreton Bay from 1848-1891. The majority of the ships in these records sailed from British ports to Sydney. However, a few went to Moreton Bay, which was part of New South Wales until 1859, and Newcastle. A few ships also sailed from some non-British ports, such as Hamburg, Madras, and New York.

General Hewitt
The ship, also called the General Hewett, was a convict ship and later an immigrant ship, sailing to Moreton Bay in 1854

immigrants on the General Hewitt, a ship of 965 tons, had sailed from Southampton on 25 August 1854 and arrived in Moreton Bay 107 days later. There had been 16 deaths on board (14 of them children) and 3 births. The brig Sporting Lass went down to the Bay to bring the passengers up to town but the weather was so rough it prevented the brig from lying alongside. After such a long time at sea, the immigrants had a frustrating week waiting to be taken ashore.[2] As they landed only days before Christmas I wonder what how they felt to be in such a different environment.
On arrival 381 immigrants were disembarked and the newspapers report that there was such demand for labour that less than two weeks later there were only 70 adults remaining in the immigration barracks and most of them were hired.[3] The Kents were among the large groups of agricultural labourers and servants looking for work. Presumably they were recruited by an Ipswich employer because this is where they settled. Wages for a married couple were £50 and for female servants £20.

HEENAN (HANEY), James 700 (I1217)
Margaret Heenan (nee Wake) was 30 years old when she died. She left behind three young children

Her eldest son James was 8,
Margaret was 7
Mary Valerie was 6 months old

Mary Valerie went to live with her mother’s parents (1939 National Register)

To date, I have not found a record of where the other two children were living at the time of the 1939 National Register.

When their father died in 1945, the children were still young
James was 16
Margaret was 15
Mary was 9 years old 
WAKE, Margaret 902 (I1792)
Question whether he is also known as Patrick (maybe a middle name)

1871 census Bridget’s husband is called Patrick, born in Ireland in 1834.
1881 census her husand is called James, born Galway Ireland in 1833
1901 census her husband is called James, born Ireland 1835
1905 a Patrick Heenan death registered in district of Gainsborough, calculated date of birth is 1836 
HEENAN, James 419 (I727)
Research notes

Born as Nicholas Heenan
Marries under nane of Nicholas Heenan
By time of 1911 census he is using Lockey as a middle name - this is his mother’s middle name so would appear to be a tribute to her


Living with Alfred Bumpus and his wife Jane in 1901 as a stepson.
Alfred Bumpus married Jane Maddison Ireland in 1904 
HEENAN, Nicholas Lockey 510 (I1190)
When Daniel Norman’s wife died at the age of 30 he was left with three young children to raise. The youngest was a baby of just six months.
The eldest son James was 8,
Margaret was 7
Mary Valerie was 6 months old

Mary Valerie went to live with her mother’s parents (1939 National Register)

My theory is that the other two children went to live with other relatives although I have not been able to find them in the National Register - they were not living with their father.

When he died in 1945, the children were still young
James was 16
Margaret was 15
Mary was 9 years old

Wikipidia provides this information:
On the Ankerwycke estate in the village are the ruins of a Benedictine nunnery, founded in the reign of King Henry II. One of the 50 oldest trees in the United Kingdom can be found here: at around 2000 years old,[5] the Ankerwycke Yew dates from the Iron Age, and is so wide that you can fit a Mini Cooper behind its trunk and not see it from the other side. Local legend says that Anne Boleynonce sat under the tree, while residing at the Ankerwycke estate, but this has not been verified.[6][7] The Ankerwycke estate was bought by John Blagrove, a prominent Jamaican slave owner, who did much to improve the estate

'Parishes: Wyrardisbury or Wraysbury', in A History of the County of Buckingham: Volume 3, ed. William Page (London, 1925), pp. 320-325. British History Online [accessed 8 May 2019]. has this information
he Ankerwycke estate, the property of Mr. Guy Harcourt, lies in the south of the parish. The ruins of Ankerwycke Priory, a house of Benedictine Nuns, are apparently of the 13th century with 15th-century additions, and consist of a length of wall, 10 ft. high, running east and west with two shorter fragments at the east and north-west. In the longer wall are three windows, all facing the south. There is a 15th-century opening in the fragment of wall at the northwest, and the east wall is strengthened by diagonal buttresses. All are now in a ruinous condition and overgrown with ivy. Near the ruins of the old nunnery is a large yew tree, connected traditionally with a meeting between Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn. In 1813 its girth 3 ft. from the ground was 27 ft. 8 in. and this in 1906 had increased to 30 ft. (fn. 8)Ankerwycke House, the residence of Mr. A. H. Benson, was built by John Blagrove in the early 19th century (fn. 9) on the site of the 16th-century residence of Sir Thomas Smith, statesman and scholar under Edward VI and Elizabeth. (fn. 10) The latter sovereign visited Sir Thomas Smith there in 1565. (fn. 11) The grounds overlook the Thames with the Surrey hills in the background. Near Ankerwycke is Magna Charta Island, where is preserved the stone framed in oak on which King John is said to have affixed his seal to Magna Charta.
