Henry Kitchen
« on: Sunday 11 October 15 16:13 BST (UK) »
Henry Kitchen married Alice Wharton on 19th May 1823 in Askham. I believe that their son, James, was baptised in 1825 in Askham but only Alice's name was mentioned on the baptism.
I have Alice in 1841 as Alice Kitchen living with George Wharton in Askham. I can't see a burial for Henry between 1823 and 1841so I'm wondering if he had moved away? I can't see any more children for Henry and Alice after James so I'm assuming he either died or moved away leaving Alice and James in Askham. Any suggestions?

Thanks

The only Henry Kitchen baptism I can find is 22 Feb 1780 ST. LAWRENCE'S, APPLEBY, WESTMORELAND, abode Drybeck parents John & Elizabeth. It looks like Alice was born in Orton in 1790 but there are other options.

Henry   Kitchen
Death year   1824
Residence   ASKHAM, CUMBERLAND
Administerix    Alice Kitchen
Record set   Index to Death Duty Registers 1796-1903
National Archives reference   IR27/106

1841
Alice   Kitchen   Female   50   1791   Westmorland
George   Wharton   Male   11   1830   Westmorland

I would guess that George was the son of Alice’s brother William?

It looks like Alice died in 1842?

Sadly this fits very well:

Westmorland Gazette – 5th June 1824
On Saturday last an inquest was holden at Lowther, before R.S Stephenson Esq. Coroner, on view of the body of Henry Kitchen, who had hung himself.
The verdict returned by the jurors was that the said Henry Kitchen, in a temporary fit of derangement, had hung himself.
