William KITCHENHAM (1781-?)

and Ann BAITUP (c1782-1839)

and Mary Ann MILLS (1794-?)

 

William Kitchenham and Ann Baitup married by banns on 9 December 1801 in Wadhurst, Sussex.  They were both of Wadhurst and both made their X marks.  The witnesses were James Taylor (mark) and John Cooper (signed).  After Ann's death William married Mary Ann Earle on 17 February 1852 in Wadhurst.  They were both of Wadhurst and both made their marks.  William was described as a widower, and Mary as a spinster, although I am sure this should have said widow.  The witnesses to the marriage were John ? (signed) and Ann Gibbs (marked).  Ann Gibbs was most probably William's daughter.   (They were not my direct ancestors.  William was the brother of my 4x great grandmother Ann Kitchenham.)

William Kitchenham may have been baptised twice, firstly on 8 July 1781 and then on 10 April 1783 in Wadhurst, Sussex.  He was the son of William Kitchenham (1750-1827) and Mary Tester (1747-1825).  He was a labourer.  In 1841 he was living at Bestbeech Hill and he was an agricultural labourer.  Also in his household at that time was his daughter Sophia and lodgers Mary Earle and 7 year old William Earle.  When the 1851 census was recorded he was a 69 year old widower living at Best Beech Hill in Wadhurst, where he was a roadman.  Also in his household then was his housekeeper, Mary Ann Earle.  He and his second wife were also living at Bestbeech Hill when the 1861 census was recorded.  (I believe he was born in 1781 and that the 1783 baptism should have been that of a sister.)

Ann Baitup's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  She died aged 57 years and was buried on 27 May 1839 in Wadhurst.

Mary Ann Mills was born about 1796 in Rotherfield and was the daughter of William Mills and possibly Elizabeth Vineall.  She was a widow by the time of the 1851 census.  Her unmarried 22 year old son, Charles Earle, was also living with her and William when the 1851 census was recorded.  As Mary Ann Mills she married John Earl on 26 December 1823 in Rotherfield.  He was then a widower and she a spinster.  The witnesses to the marriage were Henry Bedwell and Thomas Cole.
