Hi. No. 9 Edward Kemp's 3rd child, Eliza Kemp I believe is my Great Grandmother. My Grandmother is Iris Kemp whose mother was Eliza Kemp, born 1890 died in Hamilton 1971, aged 81.

I know little of my grandmother's life before she married and moved to Hamilton circa 1942. Iris died 2005.

I believe Eliza & Iris lived at a boarding/lodging house in Wellington.

Any more information would be great.

Regards Kylie.
