CORLEY Family History

This most interesting name with variant spellings Kerley, Turley, Terry and McTerrelly, found particularly in the counties of Galway and Roscommon, is an Anglicized form of the Gaelic name "Mac Thoirdealbhoigh". This is composed of the Gaelic prefix "mac", meaning "son of", and the personal name "Toridhealbhach", having as its first element the Scandinavian name "Thor" (God of Thunder) and the second element "dealbhach", "in the shape of". The name has also been Anglicized as "Terence" and "Terry".

I am looking for information about John Corley, born 1806 in (I believe) County Mayo, Ireland. He was living in South Sherbrooke, Lanark County, Ontario, Canada in 1821/22. He may have went to Canada with brothers Thomas and Patrick....? He was married to Ellen Moynahan and their son Patrick (born 1837) is my GGgrandfather. I have been unable to find any information about where John was born, lived, emigrated, when he married Ellen. I know he died in Ontario in 1883. Any information would be very much appreciated!!
