Mission, at Norfolk Island. He afterwards proceeded to England to qualify as a medical man, and since his return to New Zealand about three years ago he has practised his profession at Onehunga. He took a great interest in Anglican Church matters, being a member of the Diocesan Synod and a member of the standing committee of that body. Ho was a gentleman in the highest sense, and his kindness of heart and genial manner had endeared him to a very large circle of friends. He is survived by a widow and three children, and, in addition, leaves a brother (Mr. 11. Eyre-Kenny, S.M., Wanganui) and two sisters, one of whom is the wife of Mr. W. C.
