NameFrancis SMEDLEY 896
Misc. Notes
According to Threlfall’s GMC50,901 Francis Smedley “was probably born in or near Wilne or Draycott in the parish of Sawley, Derbyshire. His wife’s name was Ellen. Since no marriage is found for them in Wilne where their children were baptized, presumably they were married elsewhere, probably in her home parish church. Ellen was buried at Wilne on 15 April 1638. There is no record of the burial of Francis. Since their sons Baptist and John emigrated to New England about this time -- they appeared in Concord the next year -- it is quite possible that Francis went to America with them. If so, there is no record of him, and being then an old man, he must have died within a few years.”
