Hugh Conlan Bn Ireland 1791-1793

  of 75

I am trying to track down my GGGG Grandfather Hugh CONLAN. I know very few documented facts about him, but here they are
He died aged 75 at Berrima New South Wales, Australia in 1867, from this I assume he was born around 1792. On his burial certificate it states his occupation as Black Smith, that his father was John CONLAN, Farrier and his Mother was Catherine REILEY, Place of birth is stated as Dublin. Also stated is his being in NSW for 35 years making his arrival around 1832. We also have a Ticket of Leave and a Conditional Pardon which means he was trasported from Ireland as a Convict.
The only other information I know about him is that he married a Margaret GANNON at Berrima in 1840 and that they hadfive children:-

1 Catherine 17 March 1844 at Berrima marr 4 March 1859 Garrett FitzGERALD at Berrima
2 James 7 July 1846 at Berrima
3 Peter 17 April 1850 at Cross Roads (Near Berrima)
4 William 10 December 1852 at Sutton Forrest
5 Annie Maria 16 March 1854 at Sutton Forrest marr 10 April 1872 Franz
Martin BENDER at Berrima

William was deceased by the time Hugh died in April 1867
My link to Hugh CONLAN comes through his daughter Catherine's Mariage to Garrett FitzGerald and their daughters mariage to Robert Metz.
I'd really apprecaite any assistance in identifying Hugh CONLAN and his origins. And if you know anything about Margaret GANNON then don't be shy about that either.
