Going back a generation, Kessuth's parents were:

Francis Henry Mells and Isabella Kezia Bone, married in Alverstoke RD Dec qtr 1851.  Marriage is on the FamilySearch site and recorded as 9 Nov 1851.  Francis' father was Henry Mells and Isabella's was Henry Bone.

Isabella was baptised in Buriton on 21 Jul 1833, parents Henry and Mary Ann.

Francis was baptised in Liss on 4 Nov 1827, parents Henry and Mary.

The names of their children are certainly unusual: Kessuth, Omer, Washington.

If you search on the new FamilySearch site and put the parents names in: Francis Mells and Isabella, you will find all the baptism dates for the children.  There seems to be room for confusion with the name: Mells, Mills, Niells!

Francis was recorded as a farmer at Chithurst Marsh in the late 1850s and early 1860s.
