I am descended from Edward SMALL of Bideford,Devon,born 1599/1600, came to Maine with his son Francis, left the rest of his family in Bideford. His name has been recorded as SMALE in ST.Mary parish records Bideford,for father of his children and husband of his deceased wife Elizabeth in 1665.
When he got to Maine, his name was known as Small thereafter. Are the SMALES a seperate family from the SMALL/SMALLEYS?The SMALLS were also Saxons.
