Please could someone look up on the censuses for William Kitcher b.1814 Chelsea, and his wife Eleanor Hogan b. 1815 Ireland.
Looking for any family they had, and whereabouts in Ireland Eleanor was born. Also cannot find any marriage record for them.
Can anyone help please. Thanks.

I don't know when they might have married, in 1851 I have found them in the Driffield district, Yorkshire. I have a son I think, William born in Carlisle about 1840.

Where did you get the information from that led you to the marriage of William and Eleanor and the likely birth of William in Carlisle in 1840.

In a booklet for 1851 census in driffield district it says-
William Kitcher 37 Chelsea, Eleanor 36 Ireland, Jane 10 Scarborough, Joseph 2 Driffield, William 12 Carlise.
This is for a neighbour who has no other info on them, but William Snr is a great grandfather.

I was looking for a death for Eleanor and found this was possibly for Elizabeth. Fits in with him marrying Mary in 1863.
