Smith of Leicester: Susanna Smith
Who was Susanna Smith? I know that she was my 6th great grandmother, but her name, the date of her marriage and her death are all I know. By looking at the village in which she lived and the era that she lived in I think I found an answer.
It is in the small village of Barkby, that lies just south of Syston and four miles south-east of Leicester, that we first meet Susanna Smith. Susanna is the last of my Smith ancestors, where she came from, who her parents were and where they lived, is at present, a mystery.
The story of my last Smith ancestor continues on my website
