Oh.

I've found an error in my tree already.

Robert must be Kitty's brother. I don't have Kitty's parents in any census - Thomas Banks - Kitty Waters

Kitty is Robert's sister. I have found the following Nonconformist baptisms

Robert Young Banks born 26 July 1810, Son of Thomas Banks, Carpenter of Canterbury and his wife Kitty who is the daughter of Samuel Waters, Printer of Cranbrook, Kent, was born in Thomas Banks' house in New Street Ashford in the presence of William Whitfield, Surgeon, present at the birth.

The details for Kitty are identical except the date of birth is 9 October 1815.

Thomas Banks married Kitty Waters 15 April 1805 in Cranbrook.

Kitty Waters baptised 25 August 1782 Cranbrook parents Samuel and Kitty.

I have checked the GRO site for the births of the 3 children - they all have mmn Partis. Kitty is Kitty Waters Banks, presumably after her grandmother.

Marriage

John Kingsford down as a draper in the census but after his arrival in Qld. he became a Baptist minister. He out-lived his son Robert.
