notes by P John Partington


Several different families amongst our forebears had the name ‘Smith’.  These notes are about the ancestors and relations of Ann Smith, who married our ancestor Robert Smith (no known relation) at St George’s, Hanover Square in 1801.


HENRY SMITH  (bef. 1760 - aft. 1776)

This Smith family from whom we are descended seem by the middle of the eighteenth century to have been a well-to-do family in Essex;  they may also have had a London home.  The earliest of whom we yet know was Henry, who married Mary Murkin (born in 1748, the daughter of Francis and Ann) in 1769.  They had a daughter Ann, born in 1778.


THE CHILDREN OF HENRY  (bef. 1760 - aft. 1776)

Henry’s daughter Ann was born in 1778.  On 18 October 1801 she married Robert Smith (no known relation) at St George’s, Hanover Square.  Family memory has it that they then lived in a “large house in the New Road, Pentonville”.   They had a son, William Robert, born in 1808.  Ann was widowed in 1830 and died nine years later.
