"A Memorial of Rev. Thomas Smith"
Susan Augusta Smith
Avery & Doten, Plymouth, 1895, p7
"for by a deposition of his taken in the settlement of some probate matters quoted in Freeman's History
of Cape Cod, it appears he was the son of Thomas Smith, of Brinspittae, about five miles from Dorchester,
in Dorsetshire, was then "February 8th, 1651, in Barnstable, only son and heir, supposeth his age to be 37,
it being next May 21 years since he came out of England" and that his sisters Hannah and Tumson, then
living in England. It would seem therefrom, that he was born in 1614, and came to New England in 1630...
In 1640 he joined the church at Barnstable, and in a few years became brother-in-law to Gov. Thomas
Hinckley, by marrying his sister Susannah... John Smith and Susannah his wife had thirteen children, nine
of whom were sons."
