    • His chief mansion house of "Ollanty " and estates were strictly entailed to his heirs

      pay out of this manor to each of his five brothers five marks every half year ; if he fail to do so
      the brothers have right of entry, or to a grant of sufficient demise to satisfy this bequest. The
      tenements and lands in Warehorn, Newchurch, Roking and Snave, after the decease of the
      widow of Christopher Kempe are to revert to William Kempe and his heirs. The testator desires
      to be buried in the Parish Church of Wye, in the chancel of Our Lady, " beside the sepulchres
      of my grandfadres and grand-dams." He leaves the usual bequests, for the good health oi his
      soul and " all Christian souls," and donations to the poor. Sir Lawrence Broke, parson of
      Boughton Aluph, with the eldest son, is to be executor. Elinor, the wife of William Kempe, is
      mentioned, and the will is witnessed by John Roos, Esq., John Hales, Christopher Hales and
      Humphrey Gage.

      contaming the " chamber wherein I usually lye," for her own habitation, on the south side of the
      mansion. She is also to have an acre in Boughton Wood cleared for her fowls.

  • Notes 
    • Sir William left two sons, Thomas and William, with this first shown strain of Royal blood in their family. In the text, HK shows that the son William was educated for the ministry, and officiated in several small parishes, his last record being 1522, and no heirs are mentioned, and that his brother Thomas, headed the next generation.

      CHAPTER 5 page 11 (KEMPS of OLLANTIGH)
      Sir Thomas Kemp 2nd of Ollantigh was knighted in 1510, at the marriage of Prince Arthur, son of Henry VII. He was sheriff of Kent in 1493, 1508 and 1513, died in 1519. He married Emelyn, daughter of Sir Valentine Chiche(le), nephew of Henry Chichele, who was Archbishop of Canterbury, and the founder of all Souls, College, Oxford, in which all of the "Founders' Kin" and Kemps of Ollantigh ancestry still are entitled to education. HK says: "John Kemp, Archbishop of Canterbury, Cardinal of the Church of Rome, and Lord Chancellor of England, was buried in the Chancel of Canterbury Cathedral on the south side and just opposite the tomb of his friend and patron, Archbishop Chichele."

      Sir Thomas left seven sons, the two younger named Edward, and George. This was the first occurrence of these two names, which we hereafter will find frequently among the Kemps of Dorset, and are borne by this author.

      Will proved in 1520

      The arms and pedigree of this family are given in the " Visitation of Kent." Their initial coat is :—Per chevron sable and argent, three griffins' heads erased counterchanged. To this eight quarterings are attached.
