Research on the Cruse side
of the Family Tree - Smith / Tedstill
As anyone who has ever researched the name Smith will know we have had a difficult task
trying to find Eileen's ancestors with this surname.
Eileen's Smith ancestor line peters out with Robert Smith born circa 1776,
probably in Norfolk; his son Philip Smith was baptised at Great Ryburgh,
1802 and later moved to London where he married Eliza Tedstill in Marylebone in 1832
Eileen's mother Evelyn Ellen Smith was the sixth of seven children;
including Frederick Somerville Smith who was killed at Ypres during WWI and Lucy
Frances Smith; she was our favourite aunt who took an interest in all of the family
and remembered many dates, marriages, and other family details and was invaluable in
supplying information when we started our family tree.
