Smyth (Newgarden)

The Smyths appear to have held Newgarden or Pollaturk for most of the first half of the 19th century from the Bodkin family. The original leases dated 1790 and 1796 were from Hyacinth Bodkin to Daniel Hunt. The Smyths advertised the sale of their 423 acres of Newgarden in May 1871. The sales rental refers to the marriage settlement of Daniel Hunt Smyth and Maria Joanna Coneys.
