SMALLWOOD FAMILY HISTORY


THE SMALLWOOD FAMILY OF KENDAL, WESTMORLAND (TREE 392)

HISTORICAL BACKGROUND

Joseph Smallwood, a yeoman and later weaver, married Dorothy Satterthwait in Kendal in 1685, going on to initiate a substantial local descendant line. His grandson Robert appears to be the best candidate for the Robert Smallwood who appeared in Brompton, near Northallerton, in North Yorkshire in the 1740's, and this likely descendant line is dealt with separately as tree 110.

Given the first name patterns in the family and the current lack of evidence for an earlier presence in Kendal, it is possible that Joseph's origins lie in the earlier Cumbrian tree 384, the Smallwoods of Aikton and Bowness-on-Solway, but this possible link remains entirely speculative.


OUTLINE OF TREE

While this version of the consolidated tree has been prepared by Ian Hall, it may also incorporate the input of several of the other researchers listed below, and also that of David Smallwood of Worcestershire. It remains a work in progress, and any comments and contributions are very welcome. Ancestral lines of family researchers are highlighted in bold type, with a link to the corresponding lists of researchers. Individuals whose parentage is uncertain have a [?] inserted into their name.
