Susannah was born in Stebbing.Joseph was a marine store dealer/hawker and in 1871 was running The Traveller's Rest on Pound End. Susannah was sometimes formerly Peadock and sometimes formerly Brooks. There was a lot of name changing going on, both surnames and forenames, and mostly in the Brooks/Peadock families. Susannah's parents were John Piddic and Elizabeth Cornell, who appear in census entries as Brooks, unless John Piddic died and John Brooks was partner number two. Joseph's father was James Smith, whitesmith of Halstead.James married a Sarah Smith in Braintree 1815, both widowed by then. Joseph was born in 1816. The first daughter of Joseph and Susannah-ELiza Peadock Smith, born around 1837, was with William and Susan Wilkinson New Street in 2 census entries, and allegedly their niece.
