What's in there? Hopefully, nothing. Also, do you really need three kernels? Especially as one is "trunk".
lost+found is a directory created automatically at partition format time. (for ext filesystems, maybe others too) It's used to store orphanded files detected during an fsck scan after a crash. You shouldn't remove it, but do check it after a crash/fsck.
It looks like Henry has /boot as a separate partition, so it has a lost+found directory.
