We have a William Smith in Ireland who owned and part owned several ships in 1663. It is just possible that some of his descendents remained involved with the ships, although the descendents that we know of owned a pottery works and were involved in the Irish linen industry.
William's two sons were David & John (called Jack). David was sovereign (mayor) of Belfast in 1698/99, was married but no known children. John(Jack) had 4 sons, Samuel, Patrick, Andrew & William and a daughter Dorothy.
Any possible connections?

This is a way long shot, and mostly wishful thinking. I've read your Smith posts, and I know that William, John and Samuel are common names in my Smith line. Granted they are just plain common. But I am stuck at a William H. who shows up in the 1850 Missouri census as being 48 years old and born in Virginia. Wife Mary. Their children: Jonathan W., Samuel C. (married Araminta Suggett), Stephen F., Thomas W., James M., Peter H., Betsy M., Robert R., and Josephus.

I am wondering ifyou have found any more info about the children of your William from Belfast, esp. Jack's children?

Thanks so much for your time.

Hi Elaine, and other interested Irish Smith researchers:
Did any of your Smiths migrate to the Co.Cavan area? My g-g-grandfather was John (Jack) Smith, born around 1840. His son, Patrick, was born 1869 and was my g-grandfather.

I AM LOOKING FOR THE ANCESTRY OF WILLIAM SMITH, SR. BORN 1766 IN KENTUCKY [OR] MARYLAND. HE MARRIED SUSANNAH FRENCH BORN OCTOBER 14, 1766 ST MARY'S COUNTY, MARYLAND. THIS WILLIAM SMITH MIGRATED INTO DAVIESS COUNTY, INDIANA.

THE SMITH FAMILY WAS OF IRISH/CATHOLIC FAITH. MY FRENCH FAMILY; I HAVE BACK TO MARTIN FRENCH BORN ABOUT 1630 IN GALAWAY, IRELAND.

Regret unlikely there is any connection as our Smiths were very much involved in the Presbyterian community in Belfast in the period from 1640 to 1740 and beyond(when and where they developed various linen related interests).
No connections known to Galway. The problem of the Smith name!
Good luck, Elaine,

Hi Kevin,
Afraid we have found no more about our Jack's children except for developing our direct line in more recent years( 1820's on!). So your long shot has gone wild this time but keep at it as you never know what a small world the Internet has made it!
Good luck, from Elaine in Brisbane Aussie
