Kemp, Charles

Passenger who died in the wreck of the Edward Lombe in Sydney Harbour in August 1834. He appears to have joined the ship at Hobart, ten days before the disaster. His body was found washed up near the wreck with that of seaman James Starkie. Both men were formally identified by the first mate Thomas Marshall at an inquest on 6 September. Their remains were very decomposed when found, and the treatment their bodies received on their way to burial caused a public outcry.
