I had a look in 1841 and couldn't see him either.

The only John born 1776 is in Birdbrook with wife(?) Sarah. Any chance your chap remarried after Elizabeth died? And is listed with her children under his name?

OK, it's a bit of stretch

Thank you so much for looking. There are a separate lot of Smoothys in Birdbrook. I think they probably tie in with my lot further back.
