  • Notes 
    • "Mary may have been related to the family of Thomas 'Customer' Smythe (1522-91), a wealthy haberdasher, customs officer, and financier, and sometime member of Parliament. This Thomas Smythe was granted the manors of Eastenhanger and Westenhanger in Kent by Queen Elizabeth on 26 May 1585. The funeral monument for Thomas Smythe and his wife Alice is extant in the south transept of the Ashford church. The will of their son 'Sr Richard Smith of Leedes Castle in the Countie of Kent knight,' written 12 October 1627 and proved 1 August 1628, bears his request to be buried near his father, mother, and eldest brother in 'the parishe church of Eyshford in the Countie of Kent.' He mentioned many friends and relatives, and, on the sixth pahe, he gave 'unto my cosen Mary Hall widowe in money six pounds thirteen shillenges & fower pence.' This might be a reference to Peter Goatley's widow Mary (Smyth) (Goatley) Hall." [Leslie Mahler, citation details below]
