Ralph Smith of Hingham, Mass, was born probably around 1610 in Hingham, Norfolk England. The record of Ralph Smith's marriages has not been found. He was married to his first wife while in Hingham, Mass, where he remained until about 1653. As late as Sept 22, 1652, he is spoken of in the probate records of Suffolk County, Mass, as "Ralph Smyth of Hingham" (N E Reg VIII 61). The baptisms of the four children born in Hingham are recorded there. The birth of his daughter Deborah on March 8, 1654 is recorded at Eastham, Mass, which establishes the date of his removal to that town as between Sept 1652 and March 1654. Freeman's History of Cape Cod (page 359) gives the list of legal voters in Eastham May 22, 1655, showing Ralph to to be the only Smith there at that time. He took the "oath of fidelity" in Eastham on Oct 25, 1657 and was made Constable of that town in 1660 (Plymouth Colony Records VIII, 1814) In 1664 he was "trading" with Josias Hobart of Hingham, Mass.
After the death of his first wife, he married Grace, teh widow of Thomas Hatch, and the following "Court Order" indicates he died before its date: "Oct 27, 1685- Administration is granted by this court to Grace Smith, relict of Ralph Smith and Samuel Smith, son to the said Ralph Smith, all of the town of Eastham, in the Colony of New Plymout in New England, deceased, on all goods and chattels of said Ralph Smith" (Plymouth Col Rec VI, 175)
The name of this family in Norfolk County, England, was invariabley spelled "Smyth" and Ralph continued to use this form during his life. His sons therafter signed their name "Smith". - Jesse smith, his ancestors and descendants, Google Book

For the Smith Official DNA Project (All Locations) a minimum of 25, or better, 37 markers, is strongly recommended. Many times one can appear to match other kits but the match falls apart after 12 markers. We do not attempt to match kits into groups on less than 25 with the exception of a strong paper trail or known family kinship with another tester.
