Frederick Isaac Kempton (1850 –  7 July 1918)

Frederick was the son of John Blyth Kempton and his wife Catherine Susan Ellen.  He grew up at St. Edward’s Passage where his father was a  tailor. He married Ann Jaggard  in 1869 and in 1871 the couple were living at 2 Smith’s Court. He worked  as a painter/decorator/guilder and they had eleven children: Frederick Squires (1869-), Benjamin Robert (1871-1934), Katherine Susan Ellen (Kitty) (1874-1936), Squires Ernest Wallis (1876-1943), Alice Maria (1878-1945), Ethel Maud (1879-), Beatrice Emily Mary (Beattie) (1882-1958), Alfred Blythe (1884-1974), Lucy Gertrude (1887-1935), Annie Maria (1888-1892) and Robert Henry (1891-1941). They moved to live at  Victoria Road (1891) and 2 Willow Walk (at least 1901 onwards). In 1911 Frederick was recorded as being a painter and decorator and Ann as a college bedmaker. Frederick died at home ‘after a long and painful illness’.
