[Much of this page was originally shown within Smithett1 using 'The Pedigree Register' at which time, because its earlier pedigree included gaps, we started with "Possibly descended from Roger de Smethcot (d 1253-4), son of Baldwin fitzRobert of Ragdon by Margery, dau/coheir of William of Smethcote (co. Salop), was Robert Smithcot (a 1342, King's Commissioner) possibly father of" the John Smythcote alias Chamberleyne (a 1444, 1473) who married Agnes Chevening. The family was reviewed on 07.11.21 using MGH at which time the above was expanded and moved to this page.]
