John Hambleton Kitchen (1861–1925)

News has been received from France of the death of Mr. J. H. Kitchen, chairman of directors of J. Kitchen and Sons Pty., Ltd., with which company he was connected since 1879. At the age of 21 years he was manager of its Melbourne works, and about 1894 he opened its business in England. Returning in 1902 to Australia he took control of what was then the Sydney Soap and Candle Company, Ltd., which afterwards became Kitchen and Sons, Ltd., and has since continued in charge in New South Wales. Mr. Kitchen was a member of the New South Wales Club, and took a great interest in racing, being an old member of the A.J.C. and V.R.C. He also owned several horses. For some time he had been in indifferent health, and it was hoped that the trip to Europe would benefit him. Mr. Kitchen was born in Melbourne in 1861.
