Re: Kemsleys of Shropshire & Staffordshire

In Reply to: Kemsleys of Shropshire & Staffordshire by Ross Himona of 58

Greetings from New Mexico.

I have a copy of a short geneological treatise called "Kentish Kemsleys and their Decendants" by Sir Colin Thornton-Kemsley, published in 1980. In Chapter IV, Emigration, page 18, I found the following: "A John Kemsley, born in Kent in 1816, was a tanner who moved in pursuance of his calling first to Bermondsey and later to Shrewsbury. He and his wife Charlotte Rose had a daughter and six sons, John, Stamford, Mark, Albert, Arthur and Frederick. Stamford (born in 1830) had a son James Stamford who called on me [the author] in London in 1936 when on a visit from Allerton, Liverpool, where he was a police fireman. He spoke of his uncles Mark and Frederick, at that time living at Stafford. His uncle Arthur (born in 1855) and his wife Alice Huthwaite had a son Arthur, born in the cathedral city of Lincoln in 1885, who emigrated to the United States, where he married Edith Scripps from Detroit and died in 1948."

It goes on to talk about further descendents--Arthur (and Ruth Pardu), son Arthur (and Edith), George (and Grace Gardiner) and others.

Does this help? The treatise has TONS of Kemsleys all over the world.
