Kempthorne's of the North East of the UK Updated April 29, 2001
About Our Family Research
My names Lee Kempthorne, i'm 16 years old and I live in Sunderland. The only other Kempthorne's i know is my father's family who live in Hartlepool, Cleveland, in the UK. I don't really speak to my father and his family, but I have always been interested in the name Kempthorne, as to me, it is a very unusual name, and I would like to learn more about the name, but i have no clue on where to start. My father is James Edward Kempthorne, his father is Charles and his mother is Pauline, and my Great-Grandfather is also named Charles, but this is all I know. Would anyone be able to help me? If so, please help me!!!!! Thanks
