at the parish church of St. Dunstan in Mayfield, Sussex. The

Henry Kitchenham was baptised on 6 November 1808 at St. Dunstan in Mayfield.
He was the son of

1890 in the Tonbridge registration district. When the 1881 census was
recorded he was loding at 5 Murray Road in Tonbridge in the home of 57 year
old widow Caroline Manser and his name was then recorded as Henry
Sabina Richardson may have been born about 1815/16 and possibly in Mayfield,

registration district and her name was then recorded as Sabrina
When the 1841 census was recorded the family were living in Hightown,
