Re: William Kitchen 1682 Ship "Welcome" from Birmingham England?

My grandfather knew that we were originally related to "William Kitchin" that was passed down through the years. He also knew that our relatives lived for a period of time in a town in Pennsylvania called "Berwick." I traced our heritage backwards, and know from my grandfathers accounts that I was accurate. Then I found a online of a printed book of accounts in Berwick, written by a Kitchin, who was the Bourgeois of Berwick, which outlined the heritage of the Kitchin name back to William Kitchin and how he came over on the ship Welcome, and then all the names I researched as direct descendents all matched up. It said that we came from nobility, there is even a family crest, which I found, matches the description of the family crest in the Berwick account.
I hope this information was useful, I don't have the web address for the online book I refered to but I'll try to post it. Incidentally, My grandmother said that there were more than one Kitchin (Kitchen) that came over from england, and that they all split and went in different directions when they arrived state side. and I are probably related.
