Arthur Kemsley & Edith Scripps
and the USA descendants


Arthur Kemsley, son of Arthur and Alice Kemsley, and grand-son of John & Charlotte Kemsley, took this Kemsley line to the United States around about 1910.

"His uncle Arthur (born in 1855) and his wife Alice Huthwaite had a son Arthur, born in the cathedral city of Lincoln in 1885, who emigrated to the United States, where he married Edith Scripps [daughter of Anna Adelaide Mattice and George Scripps] from Detroit and died in 1948. In 1915 they had a son Arthur who married Ruth Pardue [sic, actually Pardee] and had sons Arthur - fourth in his line of that name - and Scott. Arthur and Edith had a second son George in 1921; he married Grace Gardiner and has a family of three sons - George, Mark and David - and two daughters."

- Sir Colin Thornton-Kemsley, 1980, "Kentish Kemsleys and Their Descendants", private publication, pp 18/19.
