TITLE: Family HistoRicks
DESCRIPTION: The affordable way to rediscover your Dutch ancestry.

DESCRIPTION: My known Surname lineage is descended from Andrew Smyth (1720 - 24 FEB. 1812). Andrew's Father, William, was born in Glasgow, Scotland, and removed to Roscommon, Ireland. William was said to be a man of some little property in Ireland near Belfast or Limerick, and is referred to as a BARONET. Unfortunately, there is no Smyth, Smith, Smythe to match these particulars in 'A Genealogical and Heraldic History of the Extinct and Dormant Baronetcies of England, Ireland, and Scotland' authored by John Burke and John Bernard Burke and first published in 1841. Neither is there any mention in Burke's Peerages, Baronetage and Knightage published in 1963. William's wife was Sarah Farrell, and his three sons were William, Joseph, and Andrew. William's oldest son, William, is thought to have inherited his father's title and estate. William's son Joseph went first to Scotland, and afterwards to Virginia in America (date unknown). When reference is made to early Virg!
inia, however, one must consider the magnitude of its genesis. A person having been born in Virginia as early as 1728, or as late as 1850, could indicate he/she was born in any part of: Illinois (1781-1818); Kentucky (1775-1792); North Carolina (1728-1779); Tennessee (1760-1803); Indiana (1787-1816); Maryland (1775-1792); Ohio (1778-1803); West Virginia (1769-1853). This is all that I know about Joseph Smyth. As I am sure you are aware, the spelling of last names was somewhat interpretive as recent as 100 years ago. For instance, Andrew?s grandchildren?s names were ?Smyth?-?Smythe?& ?Smith.?.
