Margaret Kemble

Managing Real Estate Broker with Fathom Realty PB00068179

Margaret Kemble was born in New Brunswick, Province of New Jersey back in 1734 to Peter and Gertrude. I could not find out much about her early life on her father’s 1,200-acre plantation, but I can tell you she married Thomas in 1758. Together they had eleven children. Her brother Stephen was a Lieutenant-Colonel in the British Army during the American Revolution.

She died in England in 1824, she was 89-90. Now here is the rest of the story.

While it cannot be proven it is felt by many historians she may have been responsible in causing the first shots to be fired in the American Revolution at the Battle of Lexington and Concord. She had access to the British Army’s plan to seize Samuel Adams and John Hancock. The informant passed on the data to Dr. Joseph Warren, who dispatched Paul Revere and William Dawes to warn the colonists.

What you may not know about Margaret Kemble Gage is that her husband was General Thomas Gage. Her secret is still just that, Dr. Warren was killed in the Battle of Bunker Hill.

Hello James - I imagine the Revolutionary War provided many such stories.  Many, if not most, untold.

Hmm, was she a traitor to her country? I'm not sure I follow so I guess I better go look it up myself for better clarity.

Hi James:

I did not recognize the name but am certainly familiar with some of the battles in that area, having lived there for some time and from exploring some of the historic sites of Boston (e.g., Bunker Hill) and nearby (Concord and Lexington).

Enjoy your weekend!
