  • Notes 
    • Great Migrations Begin, pgs. 1119-1123: Manasseh Kempton came from London, and migrated to Plymouth, Massachusetts aboard the Anne in 1623. His occupation was Planter. He is listed as a freeman in Plymouth in 1633, and was a Deputy for Plymouth to Plymouth General Court, and on several juries. He was the Plymouth Assessor for several years, and in 1643 among the list of men able to bear arms. There were no recorded children from his marriage to the widow Juliana (Carpenter) Morton.

      "The English origin of the Kempton brothers was published in 1992 by Dean C. Smith, includinbg biographical details on both brothers before migration [TAG 67:132-35]. In particular, Manasseh Kempton had belonged to Separatist congregations in Colchester and in London and was closely affiliated with Henry Jacob [Burrage 1:319, 2:299].

      "On 13 February 1639/40 Henry Coggan of Barnstable sold to Manasseh Kempton the remaining years of service of James Glass, servant to the said Henry [PCR 1:139].

      "'Manasseh Kempton' contributed 6d. to purchase drumheads at Plymouth 29 May 1643 [PTR 1:14]. He was on the committee to build a wolftrap at Broken Wharf 10 February 1643/4 [PTR 1:16]. In 1644 he was one of those in the 'Ele' River company who were to gather in case of war [PTR 1:17].

      "Sometime in 1646 the Plymouth inhabitants were divided up into 'teams.' The portion of the list that explains the significance of the teams is torn and destroyed. 'Mannasses Kemton' headed a team consisting of Samuel Dunham, Ephraim Morton and Thomas Morton [PTR 1:33]."
