According to the article in 1928 , Elizabeth Wormeley was a daughter of Christopher Wormeley. However, there is no evidence for this, and the dates are a problem. Christopher was baptized in 1626, and Elizabeth married for the second time in 1653. This profile has been detached from Christopher Wormeley as her father.
Others assume she was the daughter of Henry Wormeley (d 1657) and Margaret Consett, and her paternal grandparents were Christopher and Elizabeth Hogg Wormeley. Another assumption Elizabeth was the child of Christopher Wormeley, governor of the Tortugas, and his wife, Mary Adams (who married 2nd to William Brocas). Both theories use wills as evidence for Elizabeth’s origin.
Elizabeth married three times.
She married as her 1st, and probably as his 2nd, to Richard Kempe, Secretary ot the State in 1634 and acting governor of the Virginia Colony. He was the brother of the first Sir Robert Kemp, Baronet of Gissing.
