Historical background

The Smallwood family has had a presence in Kent since the late 1600's, when a line was settled in the Chatham area. It is possible that this line was antecedent to several of the later Smallwood families in the area, notably trees 550 and 553 below. Most of the trees in this area are being researched by Debra Buchanan.

See also tree 346 on the London page (George Smallwood from St Mary Cray 1821), which actually links to T550 below.
Also, tree 381 from Buckinghamshire has a significant branch in Kent.
