KITCHIN OF WETHERBY
George and Grace (Kitchin) Turner of Wetherby had a son Edward Turner who lived in Leeds. Edward Turner was a witness at the marriage of William Crosland and Sarah Kitchin at Leeds in 1845, Sarah being a daughter of Kelita and Sarah (Wilkinson) Kitchin. This supports the placement of Grace (Kitchin) Turner in this family.
There is also corroboration from DNA matches, with Ruth Margaret (Daniels) Davies, a descendant of George and Grace (Kitchin) Turner, having a 20 cM match with a descendant of Johnson and Elizabeth (Hornshaw) Kitchin and a 9 cM match with a descendant of Kelita and Sarah (Wilkinson) Kitchin.

 The will of Thomas Kitchin names his grandson James Walker but the exact connection is unclear. A James, son of Richard Walker, was baptised at Adel on 19 Feb 1734/35; a James, son of Charles Walker, was baptised at Adel on 26 Jun 1737; and a James, son of Jeremiah Walker, was baptised there on 7 Mar 1738/39.

 Spofforth parish registers (online at www.ancestry.com). The bride is described as a spinster in the marriage entry but there does not seem to be anyone other than Dolly (Kitchin) Trewit who could be the woman in question.
