I am looking for any information about George and Temperance Smith. George was born@1595 in England and his wife Temperence was born @1600 in England. George died in Ipswitch, Mass in 1661. I would especially like to know when they arrived in America and any lines back in England or Temperance's maiden name. They eventually settled in Oyster River (Durham), New Hampshire where their daughter Rebecca Smsith Adams and family were killed in an indian raid. I have the following on this family:
GEORGE2 SMITH (THOMAS1) was born Abt. 1595 in England, and died 1661 in Ipswich, Mass.. He married TEMPERANCE Abt. 1620 in England. She was born Abt. 1600 in England.

Notes for REBECCA SMITH:
had 3 brothers living in the area at the time of the raid on Oyster river(Durham, NH.
AFGS-Je Me Souveins spring 92 vol 15 #1 p 53
relative of Joseph Smith who came over from Eng with Charles Adams
History of Durham p 333 , Joseph B. 1640 , probably a Quaker, as he willed
12lbs for repairing the Friends meeting house after his death in 12 dec 1727
No evidence to connect Joseph with George Smythe-Smith , but in History of
Durham p 330 in his will he mentions children, and wife unnamed.
Thomas,Samuel,Sara,Newman,Rebecca, Elizabeth, and Joanna.However , Rebecca
Smith Adams died in 1694 and George died in 1727, not likely to be named in
his will if he died in 1727 .Most likely George was the one mentioned who died
in Ipswich in 1661 or 1674 who was the son of Thomas, as Rebecca had 3 brothers
living in the area - and there are 3 in the will along with Rebecca.
