Travelling People / Re: Nottingham stopping ground-Smiths Field? Help

I am new to genealogy and RootsChat so please bear with me.
Your posts are really interesting and packed with information. Absolom is one of my ancestors and this post gives a wonderful description of him. He must have had some wealth. I am wondering who actually wrote it and now I am interested in Beatta. Well, I am interested in it all, especially when I come across a gem like this. Thanks

Hi Pauline
Sorry for the delay in replying.
Thanks for your help and for the links. The post did refer to my ancestors. I have got to find my way around RootsChat. Thanks again

Travelling People / Smiths gypsies
« on: Monday 27 July 20 13:52 BST (UK)  »
Hello there
This is my first post as a new member so please bear with me. I have recently found that I have descended from the Smiths gypsies and a great grandfather was Absolom Smith, known as King of the Gypsies. No stories have been passed down, which is a shame. One of the things that interests me is how and when they stopped travelling and became house dwellers. Any advice or information on the Smiths would be welcome. Thanks for reading.
