Andrea Doria  Thomas Davenport with his wife Mary Forth arrived in Boston in 1640.  They were my 7X Great Grandparents.

English Immigrant  Quartermaster John Smith was born in Lancashire England in 1594.  At age 30 he arrived in Virginia.  Or he arrived in Boston in 1630.  His father, James Smith, was born in England in 1570.  So far as I can ascertain James did not travel to America.
