Hello Mark, Sorry it took me so long to get back to you. My friend did a cross check of the Parish Records of Kilkee & Killard but no records of the name Kilchen in either records. Do you know if they were Catholic or Church of Ireland. The Kitchen name would not be a local native name and in fact the Henry Kitchen found in the Tithe Applotment Books was the only record of the name Kitchen. Regards P.J.
