    Notes 
    • This Ralph Smith “appears in Hing. 1637, when he drew a house-lot on Bachelor (Main) St. at or near ‘Pear Tree Hill,’ He continued to reside here [Hingham] until 1653, when he removed to Eastham, Mass. IT is said that he was twice m., the first w. being the mother of his ch. Oct. 27, 1685, adm. was granted to Grace Smith, the relict of Ralph Smith, and Samuel Smith, son to the said Ralph Smith, all of the town of Eastham, in the Colony of New Plymouth, in New England, deceased, etc. (Ply. Col. Rec’s)”

      There is another Ralph Smith of Hingham, possibly related to this one: “Ralph, according to the record of Daniel Cushing, Esqr., ‘came from Old Hingham, 1633, and lived in this town.’ Mr. Cushing placed against the name the figure 1, which I presume was to signify, as it did in other instances, that Ralph came alone. And as there was but one other Ralph Smith here in the next few years, it seems more than prob. that the Ralph of 1633 was the one whose death is recorded by Reb. Peter Hobart of Hing. as foll.: ‘1640. Feb. 15. Ralph Smith buried.’ ” [2]
