Hello - I am looking for any history of George and Samuel Smyth who in the early and middle 1800's were fairly prominent stone contractors in Kingston. George built quite a few home in Kingston, one of his famous houses was Stoneview which is now situated in Clarinda Park. George "Smyth seemed to have an unlimited supply of granite. He also assisted in building the EAst and West piers in Kingston. reason I am interested. My great great great grandfather was John Bagnall he had several businesses on George's street between 1800 or early and the time he died in 1837. We could never find the maiden or even the first name of his wife who died before 1836 when John Bagnall wrote his will. One of his son's name was George Smyth Bagnall b. 1808 in Monkstown, I firmly believe that John's wife's maiden name was Smyth and that she named her son after her father or grandfather. John died in 1837, he had one daughter Rebecca, never married, and three sons, Robert, Thomas, and George Smyth. Rebecca, Robert and Thomas seemed to have stayed in Dublin area, George emigrated to Frampton Quebec, Canada where he was one of the first water traders on the St. Lawrence, eventually his descendants, almost all of them, moved to America and settled in Jacksonport, Door County, Wisconsin. I thought someone might have some statistics on the Geroge Smyth family who was the stone contractor in the early and middle 1800's. Thank you very much. Max Andrae from Wisconsin
