- Smith, Rev. Barnabas 1582-1653
- Second husband of Hannah Ayscough
and step father of Sir Isaac Newton. Smith married Hannah in 1646
and fathered three children: Mary,
Benjamin. It is likely that
Newton hated his stepfather, since he was left behind at
Woolsthorpe when Hannah moved to his
rectory in North Witham. In 1662 Newton recorded ``Threatening my
father and mother Smith to burne them and the house over them'' in
a list of sins.
