Hello again Andrew
It seems the most sensible thing is to attach the descent chart from Richard Kemp which I drew up some time ago.
All Richard and Margery’s children were born in the Adelaide district, and about 1870 the whole family departed and came to NZ. The eldest son James Sawle Kemp returned to Victoria in 1903, but all his siblings remained in NZ.
James Sawle K (sen) had one son (named after himself) and 6 daughters – you only list five, missing out Miriam Athol Rachel Kemp, who was my late husband’s mother. James Sawle K (jun) remained in NZ. The two eldest girls (Emily and Adelaide) married in NZ and later went to Australia, the other four married in Australia and remained there, except for Mark’s mother and father who came back to NZ. (What a family of gypsies they were!!) Anyway you can extract the info you want. Richard went to Adelaide on the Phoebe arriving on 27 March 1847. (He had heaps of relatives there – 4 uncles (his mother’s brothers) and their families. Their name was Davey)
Richard Kemp had a brother William Henry, bp 16 July 1829 (Mousehole), died 26 July 1919 (Glenelg). He married Hannah Matthews on 20 Oct 1849 at Paul. They arrived in 1855 on the “John Banks”. They had William Henry (1850 – 1954), no issue: Joseph James (1855 – 1947) – son James Henry b. 1879;
Elizabeth Mary (1858 – 1935); Alice c. 1867 – 1913. [I assume you are familiar with “Biographical Index of South Australians 1836 – 1885?]
Richard and William Henry were the sons of Richard Kemp born 1802 at Lelant. In 1826 he married Mary Davey. I have never been able to find a death/burial for Richard, but it must have been before 1839, when his widow Mary remarried.
I trust you have not been affected by the fires. It is hardly believable that some were deliberately lit.
Incidentally – Mark’s mother’s initials were M.A.R.K. – an obvious name for a first son, and his second name was Kemp.
