Hi Everyone,
Well, just as well I have no plans for the weekend - can "isolate" and sort  out the absolutely unbelievable amount of info everyone has found for me.  I have had a quick look at all the posts in particular those of the last couple of days, and will do a brief summary and conclusion within a day or two. Suffice to say that I am so grateful to each and every one of you!  I hope that working on this old  "brick wall" of mine, has given you as much pleasure as I have taken from it.  Success!!!  Will get back to you soon.  Long Live Rootschatters!!!

Having seen those newspaper entries for criminal convictons and witnesses to crimes I went looking for matching entries in the New Zealand Police Gazette, I have found Isabella in the 1879 New Zealand Gazette. These have been digitized and are available to view on Archway:
https://www.archway.archives.govt.nz/Home.do

To find them search Archway for 'police gazette'. You will get pages of results but go to page 7 (see bottom of each results page). Find the 1879 Gazette, then click the hyperlink, 'Click HERE to access digital record '.

When the page opens click on the title button and be patient while it loads.

You will then see a page list on the left, all hyperlinked. The key to searching these records is to realise that each Gazette has one than one index, in this case a general index and another for Discharged Prisoners which in later years included photographs.

I found Isabella in the index for Discharged Prisoners H-L, and this referred me to page 22. Scroll down the page list and click on page 22, then look down the list of names for Isabella.

Use the page tools at the top of the page to rotate the image and zoom in.

Just one caution: don't assume the individuals' information is correct. They might not have told the truth!

Try searching other gazettes for matches to newspaper entries.

Have fun!

Oho, you're in (more) luck.

I saw from KHP's post above regarding Isabella that it was sourced from the Otago Police Gazette (these were the first Police Gazettes compiled in New Zealand, I believe, copied from an Australian model and later incorporated into the nation-wide Police Gazette cited above).

The Otago Police Gazette for the years 1861, 1864, 1872-1877 inclusive have also been digitized and appear on Archway, and they cover the period of the KENNY's more frequent reported offending. Search 'otago police gazette'.

Hi again Spades.

I truly am learning about NZ records - the Police Gazettes/Otago one too are such a fascinating read.. will have to set aside some time to really check them out.  Did find the one for Isabella Kenny 1879 - very interesting - Says she was born in Malta, only 5 foot tall, scar on face.  I wonder where Michael and her actually got together... Malta was one of the few places he didn't go to as a soldier....  I might end up having to write a novel about this couple!

The 1876 one is on  page 29 (release from Dunedin gaol)
That one says born Ireland

However the Malta one seems reasonable to me. Remember the marriage certificate Shaun found her father is also a Pensioner, so she was likely a military birth.
