Description:
Kenneth McKenzie (c1835-1922) was the youngest of six children of Thomas and Mary McKenzie, Scottish emigrants to the Shoalhaven district on the south coast of New South Wales in 1839. As a young man in the 1860s he worked on the goldfields at Mitchell's Creek near Bathurst, returning to the McKenzie family home in Cambewarra around 1871 where he set up as a builder and was listed as such in the New South Wales Post Office directory for 1872. In 1886 he was responsible for the design and building of Meroogal in Nowra for his widowed older sister Jessie Catherine Thorburn (1824-1916).
