  • Notes 
    • Lawrence Smith, the eldest son of Constantine Smith, was born about 1755, so he was only 15 when his father gave him Bowker Smith's former land in Goochland County. After Constantine became a minister and (apparently) sold the plantation in King and Queen, Lawrence left for Goochland. But he stayed only a short time, selling the land on Lickinghole Creek and moving on across the James River to Cumberland County. He found a wife there, Catherine Montague, a daughter of Thomas Montague. Thomas had moved with his family a few years earlier from Middlesex County on the lower Rappahannock to the area of Cartersville, on the south bank of the James in Cumberland. Lawrence and Catherine moved a few miles to the southwest and established a farm about halfway between Cartersville and Cumberland Courthouse. They had at least seven children and lived on their farm until both died in 1834.
