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,
Norfolk in 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.
