Descendants of Matthew Smallwood

The Smallwood family in Maryland starts with a James Smallwood who arrived about 1664. This family became promient in Charles Co., MD. There was a 50 page article on this family published in Maryland Historic Magazine in 1927 by Arthur L. Keith and a book on the family.

This information on this website was updated in March 2005 with regard to Charles Smallwood of Beaufort Co., NC who was previous thought to been a son of James Smallwood of King George Co., VA. Rather, James had a much younger son named Charles who was still in VA when the other Charles was in Beaufort, NC. The parentage of Charles Smallwood of Beaufort Co., NC is not known, but it appears he may have been a brother of James of King George Co., VA and is reflected as such in this data collection (although this is just conjecture). This update info and most of the data on this collection of data on the Smallwood family was provided over the past 8 years by Ray Gurganus, email and website at
