Research Notes

According to long-time Kenner researcher, Ron Kinner, there is no record yet found which definitively places Anne Kenner as the daughter of Matthew and Elizabeth Kenner. Evidently the source of this attachment is the will of Matthew Kenner in which he names seven children, including a daughter, Nanny Kenner, who was indicated to be about 14 years of age at the time of Matthew's will. Since Nanny can be a pet name for Anne, and her age seems a fit, he believes that this is the source of this assignment. But he also has stated that he has long thought that Matthew Kenner must have married a second time and started a new family many years after the first, or "perhaps we have skipped a generation and the 1743 will belongs to the son of Matthew who was born in 1687." Thus, he believes it is possible that Anne, wife of William Gallahue, could be the daughter of the younger Matthew. Another Matthew Kenner appears in Norfolk Co., VA, with a will dated 1746, with wife Maryy Malbone, but it is uncertain if this is the same younger Matthew or another Matthew Kenner altogether. He has also seen claims that Anne Kenner was the daughter of the elder Matthew's brother, Richard Kenner.
