THE STANGER FAMILIES:
In April 2008 Mark Ward has sent a large File of Individuals associated with the Family of Thomas Stanger, who was born in 1638 in Harringworth in Northamptonshire. Mark's Information added almost 3000 Individuals to this Family, as well as many other connected Families. Since this now results in many more Families to be added to our WebSite.
They can now be accessed on a separate Stanger Family Intro. Page.
Associated with Smith and Stanger Families is the Family
of Phillip Blanched, later Blanchard.
Phillip was born around 1700; and came from London, probably the area
The Blanchards married into the Cautherley Family from Richmond in Surrey, but prior to that, the Family of James Hog, circa 1630 or thereabouts, and Marion Purves, who married into the Vaus Family, and a couple of Generations later eventually married into the Blanched Family. We do not know the origins of the Hog/Purves Family.
The Blanched Family has been updated on February the 23rd, 2007.
The Hog, Vaus, Blanchard Family has been updated in January 2016 after being asked to privatize some of the Information in these WebPages

And again in September 2022; but with no additional Individuals
THE MALTESE CONNECTION:
In June-July 2018, No.1 Son, Michael Howard Ulph Smith was considering travelling to Malta. Before doing so, he sought to trace his Mother's Maltese Ancestry with remarkable Results. Firstly he, along with the help of one of our fantastic Researchers, Joyce [Pickering] Trousdale, established the full and correct Names of his Grandmother, her Sister and commenced tracing the Line back through the Maltese Families. The Maltese Connections were through two Marriages of Enlish Servicemen to Maltese Brides. Firstly, the Marriage between William Edward Etheridge and Vincenza Cremona in 1886, and subsequently, the Marriage between Giuseppa Etheridge and John William Whitworth in 1908. It is from these Marriages that the Greer/Smith Families connect to the Maltese Cremona Family. During this Exercise, he came across Charles Said-Vassallo, who maintains a remarkable Maltese WebSite from here in Sydney, Australia called Malta Genealogy. However it is much more than just a genealogical WebSite with a great deal of Information on Malta and its History. From Information provided by Charles, we have now traced the Maltese Family Connection back through the Cremona Family to relatively early 1500s, and in addition have the following Families who have married into the Cremona Line, including,
The Family of Ali al-Kalbi, circa 880, whose Family goes on to become Emirs of Sicily, Tunis and Malta. After around 30 Generations, evolving through the Xiberras and Magro Families, they all merge into the Cremona Family, AND,
NOW, in May 2022, following extensive Work by Michael Smith, a Descendant of the Cremona Family of Malta, we believe we can reasonably trace the Ancestry of the Cremona[s] and their Descendants to Adnan, an Arab Tribal Leader who lived in the Hijaz Region of Arabia some 600 plus Years BCE. Adnan is supposedly somewhere near the 19th Great-GrandFather of the Prophet, Muhammad;
The Family of Don Signore Manfredi di Cardona, e Barone di Bamina o Varmina, who merge into the Cremona Family within a few Generations, and,
The Family of Don Gio Batta Platamone, circa 1500, whose Family merges into the Cremona Family with a few Generations,
The Families in the Maltese Connection have been updated in late August 2022, following the addition of the younger Generations.
and, WITH THE ENGLISH [associated] CONNECTIONS:
The English Family of William Edward Etheridge a Stoker in the Royal Navy, who married Vincenza Cremona, and the earlier Families, the Gregory Family, Pinnick/Etheridge Family and Winship Family who all combined to form the Etheridge Family Group. A Generation later, Giuseppa Lorenza Antonia Etheridge married another Stoker in the Royal Navy, so we have,
The Family of William Whitworth, born circa 1825, probably from the Deptford Area of Kent. Also connected to the Whitworth Family is,
The Family of John Picot, born 1819 at St. Helier, Jersey, Channel Islands.
The Pinnick/Etheridge Family have been updated on November 16, 2018 following additional Information being provided by Jane Elizabeth Marshall; and
Again, on August the 21st, following the addition of the youngest Generation of the Smith Family.
THE IRISH CONNECTION:
As above, re: "The Maltese Connection" we have been tracing the Ancestors of Michael Smith, and, of course, of his Brother, Gregory John Smith. In doing so, we have "met" a Number of Folk also researching these Families, and as of August 2018, we have the Details of the Family of Michael's Great-Grand-Mother, Mary Jane Moorhead, and at present [August 22, 2018] are following other Family Lines including the Greer and associated Families. They, however, are still in the Research Stage, and will be uploaded when they are more complete. So, for now, we offer the Family of William Moorhead, born, circa 1670, probably in Belfast or Co. Antrim in Ireland. Now, August 31, 2018, our Greer Family research is sufficient to include the Family of James Greer, born 1754 in Mullabrack, Co. Armagh in Ireland. However, further Research leads us to believe the Greer Family are actually descended from King Domnal MacCaustantin, who ruled over Dal Raida some time middle of the 8th Century.
AND, now in March
2021, we add a Link to a WebSite providing Information on the Origins of the Greer Family; and the Family's various Migrations around the World.
AND, connected to the Greer and Moorhead Families, we have,
The Family of Wiliam Everitt, born 1780 in Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, England, AND,
The May/Allen/Gooding Family, who married into the Everitt Family, AND,
The Family of Robert McKnight [or at least the first 5 Generations]. John was born circa 1810, probably in Belfast.
The Family of John Fairfield, born 1785 in Belfast, Co. Antrim, Ireland, AND
The Family of Peter Murray, circa 1825, who married into the Fairfield Family, probably born in Co. Down, Ireland.
The Family of John Keenan, circa 1800, probably from somewhere in South-East Co. Down in Ireland. One of our smaller Irish Families.
The Family of Andrew Parks, born 1841 in Londonderry, Co. Londonderry, Ireland, another of our smaller Irish Families.
The Family of George Todd, born 1772 in Lisburn, Co. Antrim, Ireland.
The "Irish Connection" WebPages have been updated to inlcude the youngest Generation, in August and September 2022.
THE NORTH AMERICAN CONNECTION:
And as with the "Irish Connection" [above], due to the Research undertaken by Michael H U Smith, and newly found Cousins in Northern Ireland, we have made contact with more Greer Cousins in other Parts of the World, including North America, Canada and the USA. From Cynthia Elizabeth Greer Velez in Canada we have received a remarkable Collection of Data on Relatives of the Greer Family, including the following Families:
The Walichs Family from North Holland, who morphed into a Variety of Van Winckle [and similar] Families. The Walichs were very early Settlers in the Dutch Colony of New Amsterdam, and have prospered in North America ever since.
The Family of Edward Brannan
The Family of Ledgett
The Family of John McBriar, and,
The Family of Alexander Rea
Considerable Thanks are due to Cynthia for the massive Amount of Data she has put together on these Greer related Families.
NOW, at the end of October 2018, after all of the Work done by our newly found Cousins, it is time to try something different. Rather than the Descendant Records of the various Families that make up our, or at least, No.1 Son's Ancestry, we have changed the Direction of the Reports to display the Ancestry of Michael Howard Ulph Smith.
AND, a little later at the beginning of November 2018, after further Investigation by the Subject of these WebPages, primarily with the help of Wikipedia, we have established Ancestry Pages for Michael going back over 50 Generations, as per the Link above.
On November 16, 2018, following some further Research [sometimes rather fanciful] by Michael Smith on his Ancestry, the Ancestry of Michael Smith has been updated.
We also have a Number of other Families [below] that are linked to the Frank/Smith Line.
The Family of John William Walton, circa
1790. John's Family came from Middlesex and London.
