Hi, I am the head of the Ui Maine Kenny Clan, registered with the clans of Ireland. I have posted a good bit of information on the Clan Facebook page on the history and origin of this sept of the Kingdom of Ui Maine (Hy Many). Please contact me through the Facebook page if you have any questions.
Hi I am looking for the origin of my g-g-grandfather John Kenny who was born about 1821. Apparently he always said he wasn't Irish. I think he was a carpenter and was a sapper with the Royal Engineers in Kent in 1841. He married a Bridget Reynolds but I know nothing of her origin as well. It is said that John had a falling out with his family and even later declined an inheritance. He came to Australia in 1851 with the Royal Engineers.
Hey, I am looking for a certain W.G.Kenny, I think the first name is William. Anyway, he served in WW1 in the Gordan's Highlanders Regiment, I'm not sure which battalion, but I do know that he was awarded a Victoria Cross, according to a relative because of rescuing some people. Could you research this and post it on the website please, if it isn't too much trouble, or on those military records.
I want to know what the surname means
I just wanted to thank for the information, helped me a lot
Good Morning, I have heard that the Kenny family still owns a castle somewhere in Ireland. As we are heading to Ireland for our Honeymoon my wife and I would like to have a visit to the castle if there is one still in the Kenny name.
Any information would be greatfully appreciated.
Marie Anne Kenny
