I realise that your message was some time back so I hope you see this. Your William Robert Emms' father, William born 1824 was the brother of my husbands gr. gr. grandfather Thomas Emms. They are descended from James Emms and his wife Elizabeth, nee Cooke. She was born in Kingston in August 1757, the daughter of William and Ann Cooke. I do not have dates for James. William Robert had a brother Alfred Wilson born 1850. I do have further information on other members of the Emms family in Kingston which I will happily share with anyone interested.
