looking for marriage of james KENNY and Margaret E?

Journal by malmal

I still have not been able to find out the surname of the lady who married James KENNY in Auckland and any more retails about her. It has been rumoured that she may have been Maori. I married a Maori myself in Masterton NZ in 1967. The family there think you may be able to help.

Hello there ...

I have this for you :)

James Hoare Kenny married Elizabeth Curtin [aka Margaret Elizabeth Curtin] in NEW ZEALAND, 1863.

Registration is: 1863/628 ... the groom is listed [in Aug 2014] as "Sup Vol 1" ... I would think this indicates that they haven't yet finished transcribing.

The Poverty Bay Herald of 17 Sept 1900 indicates that Mrs Kenny was, "one of the earliest settlers of Waikato, and has been in the colony for upwards of fifty years." It doesn't indicate where she comes from though; I assume the UK.

Hope that helps :) ...

Austin James Kenny is a "connected" person to me:
He is the Paternal grandfather of the wife of the half 1st cousin once removed of me.

As to the other children ... Elizabeth and James were married as you now know in 1863, Elizabeth was already 30 by then; there were six children in total, 3 sons, 3 daughters; I only have 2 sons and Susan.

I have a question for you ... if you can help me ... How then, does {Sister} Elizabeth Kenny fit into the picture ... I can't find any links in her genealogy that connect to these Kenny's ... ?
Kind regards,
