Don't know if this helps but christian names are often repeated in families. My Gandfather had half-sisters named Bridget, Ellen and Mary and brothers named Martin Joseph, James William and Michael, however they were all born in the 1880s. Their father was Lawrence (possibly born in Athenry). Michael ended his days in Cork having played a major role in the 1918-22 "unpleasantness". My Grandfather Patick Daniel ended his days in Belfast in 1943. Bridget, called Beezee (phon) died sometime late 1950s or early 1960s as a very old woman. We didn't even know she existed but the lawyers tracked down my late father and he buried her.

Quite a few years ago I did a search of church records in your area and all the names you list are very familiar. Honora (Honoria) figured quite large as the mother in quite a few baptisms but not always with the same father. As for your mystery woman who married the peeler, I'd put my money on Honora!
