Name: Jane COPELAND.
Born: 1883 Traralgon, Victoria.
Father: Thomas COPELAND.
Mother: Kate KENNY.
Ref: Registry of Births, Victoria. Reg. #5932.


Name: Jane PORTER.
Died: 1947 Morwell, Victoria.
Age: 64 years.
Father: Thomas COPELAND.
Mother: Katherine KENNY.
Ref: Registry of Deaths, Victoria. Reg. #18943.

If you view the records you will find Jane's mother was recorded as KENNY in Jane's birth and death records.

Here is the marriage for Jane's parents.

Groom: Thomas COPELAND.
Birth place: Not recorded.

Bride: Kate KENNA. (Note spelling)
Birth place: KilKenny.

Year married: 1872.
Place: Victoria.
Ref: Registry of Marriages, Victoria. Reg. #2201.

Kate was recorded as KENNA in the marriage records to Thomas COPELAND in 1872.

If you take a look at the birth records for the children of Thomas COPELAND and Kate you will find Kate was recorded as KENNY and not KENNA.

Not having the marriage certificate for Thomas and Kate I'm unable to confirm if Kate signed her maiden name as KENNY or KENNA.
