      From Col. Robert Neville Mann and Catherine Creek-Mann, Camp-Kemp Family History (Cedar Bluff, Alabama: 1967), vol. I, p. 28 [under Addenda and Errata]: "The following information was extracted from a Camp and Kemp manuscript prepared in 1947 by Mr. Leonardo Andrea, professional genealogist of Columbia, South Carolina; and is given as a matter of interest to those who may be interested in further research on this family in England.

      "William Campe in London married Mary Farmer in 1584, and they had issue: Lawrence Campe, Richard Campe, Nicholas Campe, and Thomas Camp. The marriage of the son, Richard Campe was recorded in the Church of St. Margaret in London in 1615. In 1637 in Nasing Parish, Essex County, England, Nicholas Camp and Thomas Camp, brothers were listed to Jury Duty. These two brothers came to America. Nicholas Camp settled in New England and became the ancestor of the Camps of that area.. Thomas Camp came to Virginia and became the ancestor of the Camps of the main part of the Camp families in the South. One branch of the southern Camps spring from Nicholas Campe who came to New England.

      "Lawrence Camp was a member of the Great Charter of the Virginia Company granted by King James I, May 23, 1609 and was of the Company of the Honorable Drapers and Weavers. He made many donations to this infant Colony at Jamestown in Virginia and also took four shares in the company and then later took three other shares and each share allowed him to take lands of 100 acres per share. He took 700 acres in Gloucester County, Virginia. He also took shares in the New England Company.

      "In England he endowed a fund in Cambridge University for the maintenance of poor scholars. He also gave 7000 pounds to found an Alms House in the parish of Friam Barnet in his home county in England. He was also the builder and patron of the church of All-Hallows-In-The-Wall where he was buried inside a vault in that church. Lawrence Camp was never married and upon his death, his estates came into the hands of his three brothers - Richard Campe got the estate in England; Thomas Campe the estate in Virginia; and Nicholas Campe the estate in New England. This Lawrence Campe had a special coat of arms.

      "Mr. Andrea believed that Thomas Camp (born 1691), was a great nephew of Lawrence Camp."

      Replicas of the Susan Constant and Godspeed on Chesapeake Bay, photo by Elroy Christenson, 1995

      The first group of 150 adventurers came to Cape Henry of Chesapeake Bay on May 6, 1607 aboard three ships, the Susan Constant, Godspeed, and Discovery. They were sent here by the Virginia Company established in England to look for treasures in the new world and spread the word of Christianity. They picked a site up river but in a swampy region with poor fresh water supply. The whole settlement would have been abandoned had not supplies and new settlers arrived in 1610. By this time about 2/3 had died of malnutrition, Malaria, pneumonia and dysentery and the remainder were only held together by the leadership of Capt. John Smith.

      One of the first industries developed here was glassblowing due to the abundance of firewood and silica. Iron smelting was also attempted. By 1612 a new type of sweeter tobacco was introduced as a cash crop. The sustaining crops included corn and hogs although the settlers also tried growing silk, grapes.

      By 1619 there were about a thousand people (mostly men) living in the Virginia colony. In this year began the first importation of "young handsome and honestly educated maids" for potential marriages. This was also the year of the first importation of 20 African slaves.

      In John Burke's History of Virginia, Vol. No. 1 appendix, is the name of Lawrence Camp who while in England in 1620 was a large subscriber to the fund for colonizing Virginia. Lawrence was called a "Member of the Great Charter of the Virgina Company" when it was granted by King James I on May 23, 1609. He was a member of the Company of Honorable Drapers and Weavers. He had owned seven shares of stock in the Company which he was allowed to draw 700 acres of land in Gloucester County, Virginia. This land fell to his brother Thomas Camp upon his death. This Thomas may have had a son, Thomas Camp, who is one of the early known settlers.

      A brick church was constructed here in 1639 with a tower added in 1647. Although very restored from ruins, it is today "one of the oldest English-built edifices standing in the United States." Jamestown was burned to the ground in Bacon's Rebellion in 1676 and burned down again in 1698. Most of the population moved inland by 1699 making Williamsburg the new governmental and cultural center of Virginia.
