The Hempsons were gentlemen farmers in the NE corner of Essex


Roger Hempson was probably born in Great Clacton before moving to Brightlingsea where he lived through the civil wars and the seige of nearby Colchester.



The next two generations both named Philip lived in the village of Ramsey. The younger Philip was wealthy enough to leave cash and property to all his children  



His youngest daughter Susan married another farmer of nearby Tendring but died young after the birth of her third child
