The earliest known ancestors are Thomas and Elizabeth SMITHERS who baptised their children at Worplesdon, Surrey from 1679. There were earlier SMITHERS families in Worplesdon but these may not be the ancestors of Thomas.  Descendants of Thomas remained in Worplesdon for four generations as agricultural workers and farmers.


In 1829, James Smither SMITHERS was apprenticed as a carpenter in Slough.  He married Elizabeth BROWN at Cookham and tried his hand as a greengrocer, a coal dealer, and proprietor of the Nag's Head near Windsor before settling in the East End of London at his trade of carpentry.


His eldest daughter Elizabeth had two illegitimate daughters, Elizabeth and Lavinia but looked after both of them and married an Irish soldier, Timothy NOONAN, in 1871 in Bentford. They then moved to Shoeburyness in Essex.


The eldest daughter married a soldier in Shoebury, but he died a few days after the marriage; she married another soldier and moved with him eventually to Brighton


The younger daughter, Lavinia, married my grandfather Herbert MANN in Shoebury and remained there.
