Missing Mother
« on: Tuesday 24 November 20 08:46 GMT (UK) »
Hi All.
Hope somebody out there can help me.
I have been trying to track down the identity of the Mother of John Smithson.
When John Smithson Got Married in 1839 to Margaret Pratt. The Marriage took place on 23rd October 1840 At St Andrews Church, Great Ryburgh, Norfolk. I have hix father as Thomas Smithson. I would like to take that line back further.
Please help if Possible.
Regards
Jedi James
