Four generations of the KILBOURN family lived in Shoreditch and Bethnal Green. The earliest member is Samuel, born about 1754, but his origins are not known.
His son, Samuel, was a carman in Shoreditch operating from Webb Square for over 30 years. He married twice, possibly to sisters. This was illegal, and might explain why the second marriage took place out of town at Beddington in Surrey after the baptism of their first five children.
His eldest son by the second marriage, another Samuel, became a carman for a short period, but 1846 was a tragic year for him - he buried his first wife, his baby daughter, his father and his mother all within three months. Samuel remarried Susanna Speakman SMITH and raised a large family.
His second daughter, Frances Martha, married Thomas SHORT in 1876
