    Encyclopedia of Virginia Biography, Volume I
    IV--Burgesses and Other Prominent Persons John Smith came to Virginia about 1652, married Anna Bernard, daughter of Richard Bernard, of "Purton," in Gloucester county. He was major in 1665, lieutenant-colonel before 1674, and sided with Sir William Berkeley in 1676 against Bacon. His son, John Smith, of Purton, married Mary Warner, daughter of Colonel Augustine Warner.

    John would have been 15 when he arrived in 1652 and most likely traveled with his brother, Lawrence, who was sponsored by Augustine Warner.

    In "Virginia Prominent Families", Volume IV, Chapter I, Warner-Reade - Ancestry.com

    "Lawrence Smith, of York, and John Smith, of Gloucester, were cotemporaneous, and probably brothers, as we have on record a deed of land in Gloucester Co., by Lawrence Smith, to "his brother, John Smith, of that county," in 1666.

    The destruction of the records of Gloucester County, by fire, in 1819-'20, has left much supported only by tradition, or inference concerning the connection of the Smiths of York Co., with those of "Purton," in Gloucester Co., "Shooter's Hill," in Middlesex Co., and "Fleet's Bay," in Northumberland County. But the deed of land in question, apparently from the first Lawrence Smith, of record in one family, to the first John Smith, of record in the other family, seems to prove that the relationship existed."[christopher smith bn 1591 wksmith.ged]
