Notes for Reverend George Kemp

      His Father's foundry was next door to a Primitive Methodist Chapel on Sutton Street, Stepney Green, where he went to Sunday School. He became a Christian at an early age, and in his teens gave up his job in the Family business, an became a dissenting minister in the Primitive Methodist Church at the age of 22yrs, despite the disapproval of his Family.

His was appointed to the Bury St. Edmunds circuit in 1875, where he stayed for three years. From there he went to Forcett St. Peter, a village near Wymondham. A year later he married Emma Upton, twin daughter of a farmer, Stephen Upton of Durham Farm, Burnt Ash, Lee, on the 23rd Aug 1879 in the Wesleyan Church in the district of Lewisham. Following the marriage they moved to Soham, a village near to Ely, for five years. Here their first two children were born, George in 1880 and Frances in 1882. He then moved to Cambridge Second where he remained for six years and where his other four children were born at two yearly intervals.

George had been ill for 15 months as a result of contracting TB following a chill caught while canvassing for his local Liberal MP George Newnes, who paid for him to go to Switzerland hoping for a cure, but this did not happen, and he died in London aged only 36yrs. My Grandfather Stephen was born on 15th June 1890, ten days before George's death. My Great Grandmother went to live in Bromley with her six children, presumably to be near her Father's farm, which was within walking distance across the fields. She refused help from her in-laws due to the fact that they had disapproved of her husbands calling to the church.
