Macklins of New Zealand

Good morning New Zealand

Looking for information on the Macklin family in New Zealand related to a Robert Macklin of Inishannon just north of Cork Ireland. This is all I have to go on so far:

Joseph Macklin [B cir +/- 1790 maried to a Jane [?] Macklin [B cir +/- 1800] Innishannon
1.Son - Robert Macklin [B cir +/- 1810] married to [?] Macklin [B cir +/- 1806] Ininshannon
Children [?]
Note: Robert was linen weaver possibly a merchant in the same trade for a while.
Note: Robert is mentioned in the Griffith's valuation for Cork in 1851.
Note: Robert was also involved with the local railway as a construction supervisor.
2.Son - Richard Macklin [B cir +/- 1812] married to [?] Macklin [B cir +/- 1808]
Note: Richard Macklin served with the local 77th Foot Regiment from the Cork area
Children [?]

A Mary Macklin [B 1879] married to [?] Macklin Cork/Innishannon.
A son [?] immigrated to New Zealand.
A Daughter - Katherin [Kay] Macklin [B cir +/- 1876] in New Zealand

Final Note: The Macklin family was originally from the County Tyrone County Derry area, now mostly in County Down. This family may have moved to the Inishannon area as it sounds similar to their even older connection with Inishowen area where the family was from in the 1750's. Prior to that the name was MacLochlainn.
Also would love to hear from the Macklins in New Zealand to hear more about which Macklins moved there and any possible connections with a "Kay" Macklin mentioned above.
