Margaret Weybourne

I'm looking for any information on Margaret Weybourne, of Knockree / Knockray House near Rathdrum, Co. Wicklow, Ireland.
I believe she would have been born between 1780 - 1800, to a wealthy family, of which I can find no trace on the internet.
She eloped with a handsome farmer, James Lawrence, form Moyne Parish, and because of this her family disowned her, and did not help even when James died leaving her with four young children.
I'm decended from her daughter, Ellen Lawrence, d. 4th May 1884, who married Germaine Eager (Ager), and lived in Wicklow.
Margaret's son Henry was a farmer in Wicklow and never married.
There were two more girls, both went to America, one was unmarried and the other married a Mr Richardson.

Any information would be most appreciated.
