Martin migrated to Sydney, Australia on the 'Stebonheath' arriving 22/2/1858 and listed as an orphan.
He travelled to Cape Hawke (Forster-Tuncurry) in northern NSW and married Anne Quigley of Chippendale (Sydney) at Cundletown (Taree) on 6/3/1865. They had nine children, in order of birth date: Alice, William, John, James, Edward Charles, Mary Ann, Alfred, Catherine, and Magdalen.
Martin was preceded to Sydney by his sister, Catherine Noone (b.1830), who arrived in Sydney on the 'Tippoo Saib' as one of Earl Grey's "Female Orphan Paupers" sent from Boyle Workhouse in 1850.
The parents of Martin and Catherine were John Noone and Mary Egan of Knockglass (Ballinameen & Croghan) who did not survive the Great Famine.
I have attempted to reconstruct their lives and more information can be found on my family history website: http://www.thenoones.id.au/
