The Kemp (and "van der Kemp") family that I am tracing, were farmers living for at least two centuries in villages
close to Utrecht, The Netherlands.
My grandfather, Bastiaan Kemp, did some research 20 years ago and I started with his manuscript. His father was
Arie Kemp (born in Zegveld, 26-9-1832). The father of Arie was Bastiaan Kemp (born in Houten, 6-8-1795). The
father of Bastiaan was Dirk van der Kemp (born in De Meern, 9-6-1748). The father of Dirk was Kornelis Bastiaansz
van der Kemp (married to Anna Maria van Roijen in De Meern, 2-5-1734; died 20-2-1778; children Dirkje, Bastiaan,
Grietje, Dirk, Maria, Johanna, and Johannes). The father of Kornelis probably was a Bastiaan van der Kemp.
I would like to know where and when Kornelis was born, and to go back further. And also to find the link (if any) with
the foreign Kemp families. Please contact me if you have any information that helps.
Thanks, Bob (Bastiaan) Kemp.
