|Description of General William Smallwood's family and education
|Appears to be a fragment of a biographical sketch of General Smallwood of Maryland. Previous entry in Past Perfect claimed the sketch appears to be from the early 19th century, before 1840, but there is no evidence to back up that assertion. Mentions that he comes from a "highly respectable family." Says his father Bayne Smallwood was a merchant and planter on a large scale who was also a justice of the peace and a member of the House of Burgesses for many years. He married Priscilla Heaherd of Virginia, "a lady of family and fortune." Smallwood was sent to England at a young age and first went to the school of Thomas Rebariks in Kinsdale and later Eton. There is also a separate blank sheet included in the file.
