Her mother, Mary Ryder, died 20 days after her birth. Her father, John Smith, was born in Toxteth, Lancashire, England. His first wife was Mary Ryder of Toxteth. His widow's name was Katherine, thought to be the mother of all his children except first Mary. John died in Dorchester, Mass., survived by Katherine, who died in Boston, Mass., on 17 JULY 1710, "age 90." Quartermaster John Smith retained that title all his life, which helps to distinguish him from the other John Smiths in MA during his time. He was a brewer and had a malt house. He was granted land in Dorchester 03 APR 1633, and was one of the ten men selected in 1634 to order affairs of the plantation. He is on the list of Freemen who signed or owned the covenant of the First Dorchester Church, reconstituted on AUG 1636. He filled various offices in the town, and for twenty years was frequently assigned to run out lots. In 1652, Massachussetts General Court confirmed his being chosen Quartermaster of the troop of the Suffolk Regiment.
