date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me. Administration of
his estate was granted by the Prerogative Court of Canterbury in 1659, at
which time Stephen was said to have been of Wadhurst. Might he have
been the son of
John Kitchenham (c1575-1655)?
Dorothy Fowle's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.
She was buried on 31 January 1689 in Brenchley, Kent, and it was recorded in
the burial register that she was Dorothy widow of Stephen
(I have a 10x Great Grandmother named Helen Fowle who was born
sometime between 1580 and 1600. Helen had an Aunt Dorothy Fowle,
she may also have had a sister and/or neice, but I haven't yet worked
through all the Fowle data I have gathered.)
Stephen Kitchenham and
Dorothy Fowle had 4 known children:
Kitchenham was baptised on 23
November 1643 in Wadhurst and buried there on 3 April 1659. Only his
father's name was recorded against his baptism and burial. (Nicholas
was a fairly popular name with the Fowle family.)

February 1645/6 in Wadhurst. Only her father's name was recorded in
the baptism register.
was baptised on 1 May 1653 in
Wadhurst. Only her father's name was recorded in the baptism
register. She may have married Henry Madett on 30 April 1676
in Wadhurst. But there was another
Mary Kitchenham baptised in April 1654.
Susan Kitchenham was baptised on 5 May 1656 in Wadhurst. Only
her father's name was recorded against her baptism. Might she have
been named after her possible Aunt
Susan Kitchenham, nee Markwick?
Might Stephen and Dorothy have also been the parents of:
Dorothy Kitchinham married John Tassell on 7 June 1670
in Westfield? Or was this the marriage of widow Dorothy?
Stephen Kitchenham married Avice Maynard on 29 November
1688 in Mayfield. However, there was a
Stephen Kitchenham born in 1667 who may have married Avice.
