Right now this project just has one member, me. I am Carolyn Dominish.

Here are some of the tasks that I think need to be done. I'll be working on them, and could use your help.

I am trying to get my Family Tree up to date starting with the birth of John Smart c.1590.* In England. I am going to limit this project to Smarts in England. At this stage I do not wish to expand into the US.

John Smart married Sara Vercolje in London. John was a silk merchant and Sara was a weaver. They met in a place called Spitalfields, London. I am also attempting to get sufficient proof to support this marriage.

My mother's grandmother was Matilda Smart who married John Dominish. My family are direct descendants of John and Sara Smart.

I do have proof, but as I have said, I am still trying to add and bring up to date the descendants resulting from the union of John and Sara Smart. Sara Vercolje's father Rogier Vercolje fled Belgium due to the Reformation. Pleaase note that there are many variations of the Vercolje name. Mainly though, from the information that I have found, they came from Kortrijk.

The proof mentioned above is quite interesting with several offshoots to notables and aristocrats (under the names Vercolje and Rycaut,) and folks just like us.
