James KENNY of Auckland about 1870 had a child Austin Kenny born in Auckland. Austin came to Australia about 1890 and married my grandmother Mary Connolly. He was a butcher in Paddington Sydney. They had 4 children Austin, Bede. Berenece and Edward. Stories over here were that James Kenny married a Maori Lady whose name was Margaret E? Even though we have attempted to resolve this happily in the affirmative ( I married a Maori Lady Donna Paku-- perhaps her father was actually Kepa Naera -- another thing to find out ) we are now prepared to join your group of researchers .
Another reason for asking that question about James and Margaret is that the Bede mentioned above became Bede Kenny V.C. who is being further researched.
