Michael Hennessy, son of Andrew and Bridget Hennessy, was transported to Australia from County Carlow, Ireland, in 1829 at the age of 19. He and his mother Bridget were convicted of stealing money from one of the guests in their boarding house in Tullow, Ireland. Bridget was sentenced to three months' gaol and Michael to seven years transportation. He arrived in Sydney Cove on 12 December 1829 on board the Larkins, commanded by William Campbell (Surgeon: Oliver Sproule), which sailed from Cork on 16 August 1829.

In 1836 he married Hannah Shearwood, daughter of John Shearwood and Ann Lane.  Michael and Hannah were my great-great grandparents.
