Henry KITCHENHAM (1844-1926)

and Eliza HICKMOTT (1844-?)

and Emma MOORE (1851-1925)

 

Henry Kitchenham, born 1844.  Photo taken in about 1910.  Many thanks to Paul Kitchenham for providing the photograph.Henry Kitchenham married twice.  Firstly to Eliza Hickmott on 27 August 1864 in Brenchley, Kent, and then to Emma Moore on 25 July 1874 in Brenchley.   (They were not my direct ancestors.  Henry was the great nephew of my 4x great grandmother, Ann Kitchenham.)

Henry Kitchenham was born about 1844 in Wadhurst, Sussex.  His birth may have been registered in the first quarter of 1845 in the Uckfield registration district.  He was the son of Henry Kitchenham (1808-1890) and Sabina Richardson (c1815-1876).  He was baptised on 25 November 1849 at the parish church of St. Peter and St. Paul in Wadhurst, at which time his father was a labourer of Wadhurst.  Henry died aged 81 years and his death was registered in the first quarter of 1926 in the Tonbridge registration district.  He was living with his parents at the time of the 1851 census and he was then a 7 year old labourer's son.  The 1861 census records that he was a 15 year old agricultural labourer and that he was then living with his parents at Back Lane in Horsmondon, Kent.

The photograph to the right is of Henry, taken in about 1910.  Very many thanks to his great great grandson, Paul Kitchenham, for providing the photograph.

Eliza Hickmott was baptised on 11 February 1844 in Lamberhurst, Kent.  She was the daughter of Thomas Hickmott (c1793-1883) and Thirza Smith (1809-1883).  Eliza may have died in childbirth.

When the 1871 census was recorded Henry, Eliza and their 3 young children were living at Tong in Brenchley and Henry was an agricultural labourer.  Also with them on census night were 2 lodgers, 63 year old, William Smith who was a widower and 21 year old Charles Hickmott and 21 year old boarder Edwin Smith.

Emma Moore was baptised on 21 March 1852 in Brenchley.  She was the daughter of Thomas Moor (c1819-?) and Hannah Herbert (c1820-?).   Emma died aged 74 years and her death was registered in the fourth quarter of 1925 in the Tonbridge registration district.  When the 1861 census was recorded she was a 9 year old scholar living with her parents and siblings at Hooks Hill in Brenchley.  Her father was then an agricultural labourer.  At the time of the 1871 census she was a 19 year old general domestic servant living in the home of Thomas Guest at Chill Mill in Brenchley.

Before her marriage to Henry, Emma had an illegitimate daughter: 

  1. Mabel Gertrude Pellatt Moore was born on 1 October 1873 in Brenchley.  Her father's name was not recorded on her birth certificate and her mother registered her birth on 21 October 1873 giving her address as Hook's Hill.  She died aged 87 years on 24 May 1961.  Her name was recorded as Mabel Kitchenham aged 7 in the 1881 census.  Mabel died in 1961.  She married her step brother Herbert Walter Rowland Kitchenham in 1892.
