Addlethorpe Kemps - George Kemp born 1811 in according to 1851 census
« on: Sunday 17 March 19 06:35 GMT (UK) »
Hello,

I'm trying to find out whether a George Kemp, who was born about 1811 in Addlethorpe in Lincolnshire, was baptised. I cannot find his baptism certificate on findmypast.com.

Someone, who may or may not be his brother, called Henry Rubins Kemp, was born in 1808 but had an adult baptism at the age of 26 in 1834 in Addlethorpe, which suggests his parents, Jonathan Kemp and Frances Rubins, may have been part of a protestant sect.

George Kemp is my 3 x great-grandfather. He married Anne Robinson and I am descended from his son Heddley (Hedley/Eardley) Kemp.

I am virtually certain of the link to George Kemp has I have distant cousins in America, who are also descended from him and with whom I have a DNA match.

But I cannot be sure that George Kemp was the son of Jonathan Kemp and Frances Rubins.

Can anyone help?

Regards

Georges marriage in 1839 at Sutton on Sea states that his father is Jonathan Kemp.  Transcript also on FindMyPast.

Jonathan & Frances baptised other children in Trusthorpe & Addlethorpe, it was not unusual for some children not to be baptised

Thanks Rosie. I can't see the wood for the trees. I have been scrabbling about trying to find a birth certificate.

This stacks up as the witnesses are his elder brother Henry (Rubins) Kemp and his wife Sophia Robinson, who were married earlier.

If you have any other background or history on this line, I would be very grateful.
