  • Notes 
    • Known from baptism of his daughter Sarah.

      A Thomas Smith was baptised in Stifford on 4 October 1789, the son of William & Mary Smith. If Sarah's father Thomas is the Thomas shown in the 1851 census below then this is his baptism.

      The 1841 census for Langdon Hills shows the following
      Thomas Smith aged 50 an ag lab born in Essex
      Elizabeth Smith aged 50 born in Essex
      Susanna aged 15 born in Essex
      William aged 11 born in Essex

      The 1851 census for Langdon Hills shows
      Thomas Smith, a widower aged 61, a shepherd who was born in Stifford
      Susannah Smith, his unmarried daughter aged 26, a dressmaker who was born in Horndon on the Hill

      1861 census - School and Cottages, ..., Langdon Hills, Orsett, Essex, England
      Thomas Smith Lodger Widower Male 73 1788 Agricultural Labourer Stifford, Essex, England

      1871 census - Church Row, Orsett, Essex, England
      George Wilson Head Male 50 1821 Essex, England
      Mary Ann Wilson Wife Female 54 1817 Essex, England
      Thomas Smith Father-In-Law Male 82 1789 Essex, England
      Sarah Brown Visitor Female 52 1819 Essex, England

      I am not certain that this Thomas Smith fathered all the children shown. The parents of each were Thomas & Elizabeth Smith but the first child, Sarah and the last child, William were born in Langdon Hills while the children in between were all born in Horndon on the Hill.

      I have a poor law removal document that shows Thomas & Elizabeth Smith and six children namely Mary Ann, Sarah, Thomas, Louisa, Elizabeth and Caroline. The document is dated 1824 and states that Thomas & his family should be removed from Horndon on the Hill and conveyed to Wennington, their legal place of settlement. This removal document is definitely for my Thomas Smith but it doesn't confirm that it is the same person in the 1841 & 1851 censuses. It is still possible though as Susannah & William were born after the date of the removal order.
