Sir Thomas Kempe ,who d. 1607 Wye, Eng. m. Dorothy Thompson, who d. 1629. Thomas Kempe's dau. Amy Kempe m. Henry Skipwith. The claim has long been made that Amy's mother was Dorothy Thompson. Some references state that Thomas Kempe was first m. to Anne (maiden name unknown), and that Anne -- was the mother of Mary Kempe who m. Dudley Digges.
Has the surname of Anne (--) Kempe been identified, and is there any truth to the suggestion that Dorothy Thompson was not the mother of Sir Thomas Kempe children?

I have been researching the Kemp/Kempe line's for over twenty years now. As far as I know there is no definitive proof there were two wives for Thomas. ALTHOUGH there is noted a will for Anne Kempe, wife of Thomas dated 14 OCT 1590 for Wye, Kent, England. Dorothea Thompson Kempe had her own will probated 14 NOV 1626, proved MAY 1629. I have a copy of Dorothea's will at my website "Kemp/Kempe Descendant's Of Olantigh & Poole England", where Dorothea mentions the girls. I have yet to obtain Anne's will which should prove to be interesting in itself. If someone should obtain this said will maybe Anne might have left a clue as to her surname.

Amy Kempe born 1576 in Dartford, Kent, England, died 7 Sep 1631 Prestwold, Leicestershire, England. She was the daughter of Thomas Kempe (1551-1607) and Amy (Annie) Moyle born 7 Nov 1551 Wye, Kent, England, died in same place May 1629. I found this in the I.G.I. years ago. I don't know if it is correct or not. I thought it might help.
