McKenzie was convicted for having in her posession a number of counterfeit coins and several moulds for making base coin. She was convicted alonside Margaret Newman and Isabella McStravick. On the same day in both the Circuit Court and the High Court, Mary Anne Reid was also convicted of uttering half crowns in Kilmarnock, which is 23 miles from Glascow on the train. McKenzie was in possession of half crown moulds, and all four convicts had the same unusual fact that their true names were not known to the prosecution, raising the question of whether Reid was part of the same all female counterfeiting gang as McKenzie. Reid and McKenzie were both transported to Van Diemens Land at the same time on the Lloyds.
