"The later Smyths of Ashton Court were not really Smyths at all. They were Smiths. The earlier Smyths came to an end when the second Sir John Smyth died in 1741. One of his sisters, Florence, married Mr. Jarrit Smith, to whom Sir John was deeply in debt ... In 1763 he received a baronetcy from George III and the right to use the Smyth arms"--p. [8]

Members of the Adger and Smyth families traveled widely in the North and abroad and depended on letters to keep them abreast of family activities and events in Charleston, S.C.. The deaths of the Smyth's young daughters Sarah Ann and Sue are lamented in the letter (14 Dec. 1837) to Jane Ann Adger in Paris. Family activities are the subject of Margaret Smyth's letter (22 Aug. 1840) to Jane Adger in Worcester, Mass. She noted that brother Robert was working in his yard and planting a strawberry bed. In spite of recent rain the city and neck were healthy although there was "some sickness among the poor Swiss & Germans near the lines." Margaret Smyth informed her sister Janey on 23 July 1849 that she was sending a bundle of newspapers telling "of the insurrection at the [Charleston] work house" which necessitated the military being summoned and included the involvement of family members. Mrs. Smyth witnessed "the departure of Calhoun's remains" in April 1850 and visited the President's home where "'Old Zach,' shook hands & chatted a few moments very socially, expressed great pleasure at seeing me." Their visit to Washington also included the studio of Robert Mills, the Smithsonian Institute, and the Senate chamber. The Smyths were in Newport, Rhode Island, in 1853 where Mr. Smyth, who suffered a stroke in 1850, was receiving treatment. William C. Preston was another visitor who was bathing in the surf

There is some family and other personal correspondence, including John W. Baker letters, 1816-1855 to his sister Catherine Comegys, and Cornelius Comegys' business papers
