William Kemp (1813 – 8 April 1873)
William was born in Ickleton, and baptised there on 13 June 1813. He was the son of Thomas and Mary Kemp. He married Eleanor Reynolds on August 4th 1838 at St Benedict’s church and was wine butler at Trinity College when they married. The couple had at least two daughters: Ellen Sarah (1840-1842) and Emma (1842-1923). In 1841 the family were living at Melbourn Place and he was working as a college butler. They had moved to 4 Malcolm Place by 1861 and William by then was a college manciple (in charge of ordering the food for the college kitchen). He died at home and his funeral was held on 12 April.
Eleanor Kemp (née Reynolds )(1803 – 7 June 1877)
Eleanor was born in Ludlow, Shopshire, but had moved to Cambridge by the time she married. After she was widowed she moved to live with daughter Emma and son in law Alfred Marshall in Milton. Alfred farmed 400 acres there, and Eleanor died at the farm aged 74 years old.
