Robert Kemp b. Nov 1807 Isleworth, England d. 1 Apr 1883 Castlemaine, Victoria, Australia married Ann Brewer b. abt 1823 London, England m. 13 Jan 1846 Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

Robert emigrated on board the ship "Thetis" to Port Phillip, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia on 1 Oct 1841 from Cork:

On board ship "Thetis" - Robert, Ann and Phoebe
Robert - 23 yrs, Agriculture Labourer
Ann - 30 yrs, Housekeeper/Maid
Phoebe - 12 yrs daughter


Anyone able to assist? Thanks.

Kind regards,
Andrew

Hi Andrew,
There are a few well sourced Trees on Ancestry and amongst them is attached Baptism for Robert Kemp for All Saints Isleworth Hounslow - 1807 (Page4)
Robert son of William and Phoebe Kemp born Nov 5th 1807.

England Marriage Banns has:
Phoebe Moody born 1778 married William Kemp 17 March 1799 Ealing St Mary by Colston Carr (Vicar) in the presence of Priscilla & Henry Howland.

regards
Val

Bit worrying that several of the trees on Ancestry give Ann Brewer b 1823 as the mother of Priscilla Kemp b 1829!
Obviously the Ann who emigrated with Robert was his first wife, who was not Ann Brewer, the second wife he married in Australia.
Daughter Phoebe could be the Phoebe Kemp baptised Mitcham St Peter and St Paul July 29 1829, daughter of Ann and Robert Kemp, labourer.

Hi All,
There is a marriage on London England marriage & Banns for a

Robert CAMP to a Ann WINTER in the parish of Sutton County of Surrey.

Married with Banns with consent of parents on 8th June 1829 - Rector Charles gardener, both made their mark in presence of James Baker & Susannah Baker.
Source - London Met Archives Saint Nicholas, Sutton Surrey Transcripts of Baptisms, Marriages and Burials 1829 DW/T/8282.

This Ann seems to go a marry a Pietro Fardello 31 July 1850 Port Adelaide SA and died 8 July 1857 age 42 Adelaide - there's nothing on the Transcript death certificate about parents husband etc.

The Marriage cert to Peter Fardella has her age as 39 when they married.

regards
Val

:eek: Wow, thank you all for your prompt feedback and suggestions.

I will review now and try to find other proof that these are the correct families. If they are, you have assisted in breaking down a 20 year brickwall for a number of us Kemp researchers.

Thank you all so very much.
