Henry KITCHENHAM (1808-1890)

and Sabina RICHARDSON (c1815-1876)

 

St. Dunstan, Mayfield, circa 1910-20, photo from http://www.footstepsphotos.co.uk/Sussex/ssxp09.htmHenry Kitcherman and Sobina Richardson married by banns with consent of parents (Sabina's parents, as Henry's were both dead) on 21 December 1832 at the parish church of St. Dunstan in Mayfield, Sussex.  The witnesses to the marriage were John ?eates and Selina Richardson.  The bride and groom made their marks, but both witnesses signed their names.  (They were not my direct ancestors.  Henry was the nephew of my 4x great grandmother, Ann Kitchenham.)

Henry Kitchenham was baptised on 6 November 1808 at St. Dunstan in Mayfield.  He was the son of Edward Kitchenham (1785-1832) and Hannah Durrant (c1785-1831).  Henry died aged 82 years and his death was registered as Henry Kitchingham in the second quarter 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 Kitchamen.

Sabina Richardson may have been born about 1815/16 and possibly in Mayfield, but so far no baptism has been found for her.  She died aged 60 years in the third quarter of 1876 in the Sevenoaks registration district and her name was then recorded as Sabrina Kitchenham.

When the 1841 census was recorded the family were living in Hightown, Wadhurst and in 1851 they were at Sparrows Green, Wadhurst, just 3 doors away from John Kitchenham and his family.  They had left Wadhurst by the time the 1861 census was recorded.  By 1871 the family were living at Cryall's Farm in Brenchley, Kent.  In that census Henry gave his age as 62 and Sabina of 56, whereas in the 1851 census they were 45 and 43 respectively.  Henry was an agricultural/farm labourer.

 

Henry Kitchenham and Sabina Richardson had the following known children:

  1. Elizabeth Kitchenham was born on 18 November 1833 and her birth was registered at the Shover's Green Baptist Chapel in Wadhurst, Sussex.  She died aged 62 years and her death was registered in the Tonbridge registration district in 1895.  She was living with her parents when both the 1841 and 1851 census were recorded.  She would seem to have had an illegitimate son:

    1. Herbert Kitchenham was born in the second quarter of 1849 in Wadhurst.  He probably died aged 79 years in the fourth quarter of 1929 in the Rye registration district.  Herbert was baptised on 14 October 1849 in Wadhurst when he was said to be the son of Henry and Sabina.  He was living with Henry and Sabina as their son when the 1851 census was recorded, but in the 1871 census he was living with Elizabeth and her husband and children and was said to be her son.  In 1881 he was described as a 30 year old unmarried lodger in the home of Thomas Botten and he was then an agricultural labourer.  By 1891 he was lodging at Newmans Cottage, Hailsham, Sussex in the home of 55 year old widower Henry Baker.  Herbert was still single in 1891 and working as a farm labourer.  Also lodging in the household at that time was 58 year old widow Charlotte Lusted and 7 other Lusteds (Fanny 24, Amos 22, Emily 17, Elizabeth 15, Annie 13, Henry 4 and Annie 2).

      Herbert had married Jane by 1901.  She was presumably previously Jane Lusted as also living with them in 1901 was brother-in-law David Lusted and his wife Emma.  Both Jane and David were born in Hailsham, Sussex.  Jane probably died aged 75 years in the first quarter of 1930 in the Rye registration district.  The birth of a Jane Lusted was registered in the third quarter of 1852 in the Hailsham registration district.

    Elizabeth married twice, firstly to William Wallis Loviell, widower, in 1854.  He was the son of William Wallis.  William died in the fourth quarter of 1864 in the Ticehurst registration district.

    William and Elizabeth had 3 known children:

    1. Samuel Wallace was born in 1856 in Edenbridge, Kent.  He was a 14 year old at the time of the 1871 census and was living with his mother and step father.  He married Emily and in 1881 they were living in London along with their young son.  In 1891 Samuel was a market carman living in Bloomsbury with his wife and 3 children.  Also with the family on census night in 1891 was Samuel's cousin, 19 year old Albert Clapson.  The family were living in St. Martin in the Fields by 1901.

      Samuel and Emily had the following known children:

      1. William Wallis was born in 1880.

      2. Ernest Wallis was born in 1881.

      3. Daisy Wallis was born in 1891.

      4. Ethel Wallis was born in 1894

      5. May Wallis was born in 1896.

      6. Victor Wallis was born in 1899.

    2. Fanny Wallace was born in 1859 in Lamberhurst, Kent.  She was 11 years old in 1871 and living with her mother and step father.

    3. William Wallace was born in 1862 in Wadhurst, Sussex.  In the 1871 census he was recorded as a dumb 8 year old living with his mother and step father.  He was living with his mother and step father in 1881 and he was then 19 year old William Wallis.  He was still living at home in 1891 and working as a farm labourer.

    As Elizabeth Sorrill Wallace she then married Thomas Botten on 18 March 1865 in Brenchley, Kent.  Thomas died aged 81 years and his death was registered in the Tonbridge registration district in 1898.  The couple and their children were living in Horsmonden, Kent when the 1871 census was recorded and Thomas was a 53 year old agricultural labourer who gave his place of birth as Brenchley.  Thomas was probably a widower when he married Elizabeth as also living with the couple in 1871 was his 15 year old daughter Celia Botten.  By 1891 the couple were living in Tunbridge Wells and Thomas was a gardener/domestic servant.

    Thomas and Elizabeth had the following children:

    1. Thomas Ernest Botten was baptised on 28 August 1870 in Horsmonden.  He was 8 months old when the 1871 census was recorded and his name was then recorded as Ernest Botten.  He was 11 year old Thomas E. Botten in the 1881 census and he was a scholar.  In 1891 he was a plumber's labourer.

    2. Ellen Sabina Botten was baptised on 13 October 1872 in Horsmonden.  She was a 7 year old scholar at the time of the 1881 census.  She was a domestic servant in 1891.

  2. Edward Kitchenham was born on 12 September 1835 in Wadhurst and his birth was registered at the Shover's Green Baptist Chapel.  He married Ann Weaver in 1863.  (They have their own page.)

  3. Naomi Kitchenham was born on 14 November and baptised on 25 November 1837 in Wadhurst, at which time her father was a labourer of Wadhurst.  She was living with her parents in 1841, but in 1851 she was a 14 year old servant living in the home of John Dadswell (he was the son of Robert Dadswell and Ann Kitchenham).  Before her marriage she probably had an illegitimate daughter:

    1. Mary Frances Kitchenham was born in the second quarter of 1859 in the Ticehurst registration district.  When the 1861 census was recorded she was living in Henry and Sabina's household as their granddaughter.  In the 1871 census her name appears to have been recorded as Fanny Hursell and she was living with her parents and siblings.  As Mary Frances K. Hursell she married William Hook in the fourth quarter of 1880.  At the time of the 1881 census the couple were living at 58 Millbank Street, London and William was a 23 year old police constable.  He was born in Brenchley.  They had the following child with them in 1881:

      1. Lillie Hook was born in 1881 in Westminster, London.  She was 2 months old when the 1881 census was recorded.

    Naomi married Thomas Hursell on 14 February 1863 in Paddock Wood, Kent.  He was born about 1831 in Horsmonden and he may have died in 1902 aged 71 years, at which time his name was recorded as Thomas William Hursell.  When the 1881 census was recorded the family were living in Spout Lane in Brenchley (next door to the family of her brother Henry), where Thomas was an agricultural labourer.

    Thomas and Naomi had 3 known children:

    1. Emily Jane Hursell was baptised on 8 December 1867 in Horsmonden.  She was a 13 year old scholar when the 1881 census was recorded.

    2. Catherine Minnie Hursell was baptised on 28 August 1870 in Horsmonden.  She was a 10 year old scholar in 1881.  She may have married in 1897.

Caroline Kitchenham was born about 1840 in Wadhurst or Mayfield.  She was baptised on 14 October 1849 in Wadhurst and her father was then a labourer of Wadhurst.  She was living with her parents when both the 1841 and 1851 census were recorded.  In 1861 she was a 20 year old house servant in the home of John Colbran, a book seller, at Roseberry House in the High Street, Tunbridge Wells, Kent.

    Caroline married twice, firstly Edward Jenner on 22 February 1862 in Horsmonden.  She next married Jessie Wallis in the fourth quarter of 1890 in the Sevenoaks registration district (2a 1102).  Banns of marriage were published at the parish church of Chiddingstone on 12, 19 and 26 October 1890, which recorded that Caroline was a widow and that they were both of Chiddingstone.

    Edward was born about 1833 in Chiddingstone, Kent and was the son of William Jenner.  He died aged 50 years and his death was registered in the first quarter of 1884 in the Sevenoaks registration district (2a 385).

    In 1891 Caroline and Jesse were living in Oakenden Lane, and their next door neighbours were the Coles family, who had also been in the neighbouring property in 1881.  Jesse was then a 49 year old agricultural labourer.  Also with the couple on census night were 2 of Caroline's children.  The couple and same 2 children were still living in Oakenden Lane in 1901.
