Kenny

Great great grandmother was Jane Kenny, born about 1829 Navan. Had a younger sister Mary.

As young girls, both came to Sydney on the ship William and Mary in 1849. Listed in Irish Famine Girls records.

All information welcome and I have a bit more on Janes life in Australia for anyone interested.

    Welcome to Ireland Reaching Out!

    Roots Ireland only has one Jane Kenny baptismal record around 1829 and the record was not in Navan but in Kilskre parish about three parishes to the west. See transcript below. She did have a younger sister Mary baptized in 1836 in Oldxastle. See below.

    Have you considered autosomal DNA testing?

  • My ggg mother was also Jane Kenny William and Mary 1849.   I would very much like to make contact as I seem to have hit a brick wall with her not long after my gig grandfather was born in Australia.
