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

Ralph Smith b c 1610 Hingham Norfolk ENG, came from there in 1633. Father probably John Smith. Ralph of Eastham, Plymouth Colony. Grace Smith, relict of Ralph Smyth.

This chart, for privacy reasons, partially privatizes kit numbers. Each unique family line is represented by a *branch*. Think of one big tree with many branches. The branch number is automatically generated when a member sends his or her tree. The Smith DNA Project looks to see if the lineage is already represented or is new, as well as checks to see if the DNA results are compatible with any existing and matching line results. The YDNA, FFAUT, mtDNA, or Tree Only shows what type of DNA, if any, the member has tested for.
Groupings based on at least 37 matching YDNA markers, subject to change if better match found;autosomal, mtDNA and tree-only are assumed to be related but we still suggest that, if possible the autosomal tester, etc, find a Smith YDNA tester of a particular line to test to be sure.
To see more information on a given *branch, click the branch description (ie, "John Smith b 1767 NC") etc.
icon for FF/AUT (Family Finder/Autosomal type test) means caution, needs to be verified. means it has been verified with at least one other autosomal match
Contacting a participant. Use the contact information, above. if the member is registered on this site, you may send a private message. You will also need to be registered and logged on. You can also go to a given ancestor page, and post a query to the forum which will also post to that ancestor's page. Post a question regarding the line on the Smiths DNA Facebook group. If on FamilyTreeDNA, look up the match list and click on the email icon for a given matching kit. Post a comment on the guestbook.
The section with Tree/Ped/m/x/Y/FF(Aut) shows the top tree line and pedigree if known, and what the YDNA, mtDNA, X line would look like-does not necessarily mean the person has done a particular test- column 2 shows the test taken Groupings based on YDNA; mtDNA and FF/Aut are assumed to match based on tree; suggest those kits find a Smith male in line to YDNA compare. If you are a male Smith that did an autosomal test (Family Finder/Ancestry) and you are grouped with others, we strongly suggest you do a YDNA test as well.
A mail icon indicates that this person has registered on, the registration has been tied to a branch, and he or she can be contacted by clicking the mail icon and sending a private message. The private message will also send an email. If the member is also a group contact for the group, there will be a "Group Contact" indication as well.
A icon indicates the line representative has not registered on this site and cannot be contacted through private message or email. If you are represented here and you are not registered, please register and be sure to include your kit number so we can look you up and tie you to your branch. You can then be directly contaeted from this site.

For the Smith Official DNA Project (All Locations) a minimum of 25, or better, 37 YDNA 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.
