Kemp Family History

One of the things Billy Kemp was keen on was family history, and in the days before the internet he started to track down his ancestors. I think he was hoping to find out the answer to one of the family myths, that his great grandfather had run off with the Laird's daughter and settled in Old Kilpatrick with her.

Since my father died I have carried on his research, and in fits and starts, with much help from a distant cousin I have put together what I can find out on this website. You can see the older parts of the tree at

There are also some accompanying narratives and discussion over on my blog. The appropriate entries are in the Genealogy Category.
