Hi Milliepede
This really is a good one, isn't it ;D
I've been following the son of William, Thomas who 16 in 1901 is with his aunt Margaret Kitching 47, who looks like she is the daughter Margaret Fawcett. On the same page is his family, father down as
William K Fawcett.

1901 William K Fawcett
1881 William Fawcett Kitchen
1871 William Fawcett
1861 William Fawcett
1851 William Fawcett

Think he was reg William Fawcett 1857 Kendal.

The Grandaughter you mention has also  been know as Fawcett & Kitchen, Kitchen  would inply, his grandaughter not hers lol. Think she maybe Sarah's daughter, who later is still with family but Sarah Mitchell with daughter Ann but no sign of husband lol.
I believe they are his children & have used, incorporated his name.
I think the person who took the census was as confused as me  ;D ;D

It's a cracker  ;D

I think you're probably right now that they were the parents seeing as the children intermingle the surnames as and when.   

I noticed on one of the census there was a Mitchell family next door.  Maybe Sarah's future husband was among them!

There is a marriage Kendal 1873 Sarah Fawcett Kitching and Christopher Frank Mitchell.

Yes have found a baptism for Mary Eleanor 17 April 1870 - mother Sarah Kitchen.

 ;D ;D Good fun this family lark Washy! compare ages and status (married or single) ie Sarah Westgarth in 1841 is shown as 15 occ Female Servant to a Thomas Teasdale at Thompson Fould, Kirkby Lonsdale Census Ref HO107/1161/ 10/8/ 11.
So too many Sarah's, having children and not marrying!
