Looking for Information about KEMBLE ancestry

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date

I know little about my ancestry with the surname KEMBLE. I am from Wales so I might have a connection with the Martyrs and Actors. Many of them went to America, I think during the 1700s. Much help would be appreciated.

I think you will have to give more information about your ancestors before anyone can start to help you.

Do you have any names and dates for any of these Kembles?

I'm afraid you'll have to be more specific if you want any help.

I'd suggest you use the Search Trees facility to look for people researching the family name.

What research have you already done?

I so far haven't gathered much information due to the lack of communication on the Kemble side of my family, all I know is my Great-Grandparents were named WILLIAM KEMBLE and SUSAN MAY MCCARTHY.. One of my uncles say we might have a possible connection with John Kemble who was a Martyr

1934 back to the 1700's will take a lot of researching........
