My Kenna family came to New Zealand from Queenland, settling in Canterbury initially. They were Richard and Helen with their children - Robert Boyd, Bessie May, Murial Helen, Leonard George, Mona Ray, Richard Lamington. There was 1 more child who died as an infant in Queensland, James Morrissey.

Doris Annie Kenna was the second wife of Robert Boyd.

Richard Morris Kenna was born in Kilkenny and I think but am not sure that his mother came from Tipperary. Her name was Catherine Morrissey.
Richard's father was James Kenna.

Helen, Richard's wife, was born in Londonderry to William Leckey Ferguson and Mary Given.

Margaret Jane Lyon married Percy Kenna in Knox Church Dunedin. I believe that Percy had come from Youghal, Cork, Ireland via Australia. I think he was married in Australia, had children and left for Nz. I believe that the Australian family didnt know where he had gone and the children believed he had died. He then had another family in NZ
