  • Notes 
    • Virginia Historical Genealogies by Boddie has speculation on p 341 about who the Thomas Smith, brother of Arthur Smith 1 of Isle of Wight County and son of Arthur Smith of Blackmore who died in 1622 is. Richard Smith d 1712 did have a son named Thomas and the name Arthur is carried down. The theory comes with THIS line "Richard and Nicholas Smith of Surry coudl well have been sons of this Thomas Smith". Since part of that Thomas SMith's will is missing, his children are unknown.

      Mr Stuart Smith of Scotland Neck NC has a chart now in his possession, evidently made between 1774 and 1777, showing the names and ages of Arthur Smith b 1732 and Ann Smith his wife. ON this chart are two large peacocks representing the parents and for each child is a separate panel with a peacock at the head of it. The date of the chart is fixed at no later than 1777, for the reason that their two youngest children, Anne Bennett Smith and William Ruffin Smith, are not shown thereon. They were born in 1777 and 1779 and are mentioned in the wills of both Arthur and Anne.
