I am researching the smyth/smythe family tree. Frederick was born in 1824 in Ireland (do not know where)and died in Petworth, England in 1865. He married Ellen O'Neill Canavan on 10 June 1847 in Roscommon, Ireland. I would very much like to know how Frederick spent his life and also that of his father Richard Smyth/Smythe. I am confused with the spelling of the surname because in some information I have come across the smyth/smythe surname spelt several ways. My mother who recently passed away was a Smythe and could not help me with the spelling of her maiden name,which was the correct spelling.
