Families covered: Smyth of Blickling, Smyth of East Dereham

Carthew identiifies the arms of the following family as "Azure, a chevron engrailed between three lions passant guardant or" which are the same as those shown on Smith01. This may or may not be correct for Carthew (p470) introduces the pedigree he gives for the following family with the caveat "Although perhaps the first steps in the scale may be apocryphal". Note that the inclusion below of Thomas Smyth of Ostenhanger looks particularly suspect. We suggest that the whole upper section be viewed with caution.
Warrenne Smythe of Penshurst, Sussex (d c1371)
1. Henry Warrenne Smythe (d 1410)
  m. Anne Neville
  A. Edward Warrenne Smythe (d 1455)
m. Emma Chicheley
  i. Thomas Smyth (d 1504, "purchased estate at Blickling in Norf.")
  m. Isabella Clifford
  a. John Smyth (dsp c1540, Baron of the Exchequer)
  b. Symon Clifford Smyth (d 1537)
  m. Elizabeth Lovell
  (1) Thomas Smyth of Ostenhanger (dsp c1593) ## see here ##
  Carthew notes that "This Thomas Smyth married Alice Judde, whose grandfather, John Judde, married Margaret Chiche, whose mother Philippa was da. of Sir Rob. Chichelie, brother of the Archbishop. In 1584 he sent a MS. of this Pedigree, so far, to Symon his brother." This is clearly viewed as the same person as the Thomas Smythe of Osterhanger shown on Smith01. Noting that Carthew shows this Thomas as dsp whilst Smith01 identifies him as ancestor of the Viscounts Strangford, we suspect that something is wrong here!
