Trying to find Keon

ANY KEONS AT ALL :I am researching the KEONS who came to England from Keonbrook, County Leitrim, Ireland; from 1835 onwards. In particular, I would like any information on Miles Gerald Keon who was in London St Giles area from 1846 to 1859, after the French Foreign Legion! He dabbled in Law, then journalism and novelettes then became Colonial Secretary of Bermuda until his death - 1875. Would also like to hear of any Keons who arrived from Ireland before, during and after the second world war.
