John KITCHENHAM (1744-?)

and Elizabeth MITCHELL (c1745)


John Kitchenham and Elizabeth Mitchell were married by banns on 14 January 1767 in Rotherfield, Sussex.  They were both then of Rotherfield.  (They were not my direct ancestors.)

John Kitchenham was baptised on 2 June 1744 in Rotherfield.  He was the son of William Kitchenham (1714-?) and Mary Dadswell (1707-1777).  John may have built a tenement and 3 dwellings on ground adjoining Frog's Hole in Rotherfield, which by 23 February 1847 were occupied by Emanuel Adams, William Mepham and Thomas Martin.  On 17 May 1766 a bastardy bond was issued to John Kitchenham of Rotherfield, binding him to pay 50 for the maintenance of a child to be born to Mary Bridger of Rotherfield, of which John was said to be the reputed father.

Elizabeth Mitchell's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.


John Kitchenham and Elizabeth Mitchell had 5 known children:

  1. Elizabeth Kitchinham was baptised on 25 October 1767 in Rotherfield.

  2. Mary Kitchinham was baptised on 16 April 1769 in Rotherfield.

  3. Sarah Kitchinham was baptised on 7 April 1771 in Rotherfield.

  4. Ann Kitchinham was baptised on 5 March 1773 in Rotherfield.

  5. John Kitchinham was baptised on 7 July 1775 in Rotherfield.





Emmanuel Adams married Jane Leonard by banns on 15 December 1818 in Rotherfield.  He was then a bachelor.  The witnesses were James Pratt and Thomas Cole.
