Rosa, I found this on the IGI:


JANE AITKIN
Event(s):
Birth:
Christening: 06 OCT 1816 Scotch Presbyterian, Maryport, Cumberland, England

Death:
Burial:
Parents:
Father: ROBERT AITKIN
Mother: NELLY BELL

ROBERT AITKIN Event(s):
Birth: 19 JUN 1832

Christening: 08 JUL 1832 Scotch Presbyterian, Maryport, Cumberland, England

Death:
Burial:
Parents:
Father: HENRY AITKIN
Mother: REBECCA GAMMON

Don't know if the Henry who married Rebecca is your man, but if there is a Scottish link, then the location of the Christenings may be significant. Jane could have been Henry's sister, with Robert being a family Christian name (Robert 1832 being named after his grandfather).
