Chart 15. Cambridge Branch (Part 2).
DESCENDANTS of DR. C. R. PEMBERTON (Chart 14, No. 41) by his FIRST WIFE.
Until quite recently, it was not known that Dr. Christopher Robert Pemberton was twice married. Most of the particulars on this Chart had been obtained, tracing back to Lt.-Gen. George Richard Pemberton (No. 69) in one case, and to Captain Henry Charles Pemberton (No. 70) in another, but no connection could be discovered between these two, or between either of them and any other branch of the family. However a note at the India Office revealed that George Richard was the son of Dr. C. R. Pemberton, and that he was baptised at Marylebone Church, and the Registers of that Church were found to contain the entry as follows: “Dec. 6, 1790. George Richard Pemberton, son of Christopher Robert and Sarah, born 11th July.” From other sources it was found that George Richard had a brother “Henry,” and as Captain Henry Charles Pemberton was born in 1791, the year after George Richard, it has been assumed with some confidence that “Henry Charles” is George Richard’s brother “Henry.” Correspondence with various members of the two families has supplied many details.
