Richard Philip Gravestock on 11th October, 2021 wrote of Ellen Kenna:

The Ellen Kenna jailed for one month in 1829 for being drunk may be another Ellen Kenna, as by this date the “Almorah” Ellen Kenna was married (1825) to Joseph Gravestock, and if it was her presumably would have been charged under her married name. There was another Ellen Kenna who arrived in NSW with her family as a young girl.
