Welcome to the boards - might be nice to have a name for you!
Have you looked for records of births/marriages/deaths? These can be searched easily on Freebmd, click here:

You are fortunate having such unusual names to research. Here is Kitchener's birth, found on the site above. The 2nd 'Rainsborough' is his mother's maiden name (this is shown 1912 onwards). This suggests she was not married.

That birth suggests illegitimacy.......you need to buy the cert for confirmation

OR......look for a marriage

If you want to the Raisborough family back, I suggest you get Kitchener's birth cert. This will cost £9.25 and can be ordered online from the GRO (just google it).
