Origins of surname

This name has one of two derivations. The first is from a Norman nickname cammus or camois, meaning ‘snub-nosed’, but those who have the name may prefer the suggestion that is is derived from chemise and was the word for a shirt maker.

Early records

Stephen Kemish married an unknown Mary at St Brelade in about 1831. They had three children but their line appears not to have descended any further.
