William Kenney
circa 1695-1774
Mary King
circa 1695-1781
Edmund Kenney
farmer, earlier bricklayer 1
of Gayton, formerly of Gt. Massingham 2
born circa 1732 3
died May 1798
buried 15 May 1798, Gayton, Norfolk
will dated 5 May 1797
and proved 22 May 1798, by John Marsters and Benjamin Carter
I have not so far found any baptism for Edmund. He and Honor, his wife,
are buried next to William and Mary Kenney in Gayton churchyard.

On the 2nd June 1747 the apprenticeship to Richard Dye, bricklayer,
of Great Massingham, of Edmund son of William Kenney, was registered.

In the Manor Roll of Westhall alias Gaytons in Gayton, Norfolk, session of
17 November 1766, he is described as 'Edmund Kenney of Gt. Massingham
in the county of Norfolk, bricklayer'.

I am prepared to accept these three facts as reasonable evidence that the
William and Mary Kenney who were married in Great Massingham and whose
children were baptized there, are the same as the William and Mary Kenney
buried in Gayton and that they are also the parents of Edmund Kenney.
