Elizabeth Cotterell was bridesmaid for the 1767 wedding of Lucy Lyttelton (later Lady Valentia) the daughter of George Lyttelton, 1st Baron Lyttelton. George Lyttelton was secretary to Frederick, Prince of Wales. George Lyttleton also was a poet and man of letters and briefly Chancellor of the Exchequer. Lucy Lyttleton gave Elizabeth Cotterell an anchor broach which is still in the family today. I have a letter from Lucy Lyttleton from 1767 congratulating Elizabeth Cotterell on her upcoming wedding in 1768.

Monthly Obituary, October 1787
lately at Evesham, Charles Kemp, Esq.

From A general History of the Kemp Families of Great Britain and Her Colonies by Fred. Hitchin-Kemp 1902?
The will of Charles Kemp, of Evesham, was proved in 1787, his death being announced in
the Gentleman’ s Magazine as occuring on 14th September and the register stating that he was buried at All Saints' on the 16th of that month, 1787. He is styled "Gent. " in his will, and states that he had inherited under the will of his father-in-law, Thomas Cotterell, of Campden, Gentleman, a freehold estate at that place, and that he also had property in Drury Lane, Great Queen Street and Hampstead, all in Middlesex, which, subject to his widow's life interest, he left to his son Charles, who was bound to allow to his sisters sufficient annuities for their maintenance. The will mentions Mr. Owen, bookseller at Temple Bar, London, Mr. John Brown, stockbroker, and Mr. John King, of Chancery Lane. These last names and the Middlesex property casts a doubt upon his connexion with the early Kempes of Evesham, but although the Kempes of Hendon also had property at Hampstead, Drury Lane and Great Queen Street, we are not able to state that he belonged to that family. We find that a Charles Kemp, Esquire, of Evesham, subscribed for a copy of " The History and Antiquities of Evesham " in 1768, and that a Charles Kemp, possibly his son, was an officer on the Chaser, and made his will in 1788 ; in this, the testator names his " good friends " Frederick and Hannah Westerlins, of the parish of St. George's-
in-the-East, Middlesex, as residuary legatees, but his estates are not enumerated. Another Charles Kemp, formerly of the East Indian Maritime Service, was buried in Brixton Church in 1840, aged forty-six years, and a will, which doubtless is his, was proved in London that year. Perhaps this also was a relation of the Evesham Kempes, of whom we find no later trace locally. The last entry of a Kemp in the Evesham registers is the marriage of Elizabeth Kemp in 1794 to Richard Homer, of Dudley. One other entry, but earlier, is however curious, that of the baptism in 1775 of Frances Stonestreet, daughter of Charles Kemp ; she was buried in 1777- It is a singular coincidence that Grace, daughter of Thomas Stonestreet, of Lewes, married George Kemp, grandfather -of Thomas Read Kemp, the prospector of Kemp Town, with whose family the name of Russell mentioned above as intermarried with Kemps of Evesham, was also linked.
