Surname Saturday -- SMITH (Colonial Massachusetts)

It's Surname Saturday, and I'm "counting down" my Ancestral Name List each week.  

I am in the 8th great-grandmothers and I'm  up to Ancestor #1765, who is Hannah Smith (1666-1693) 
[Note: the earlier great-grandmothers and 8th great-grandfathers have been covered in earlier posts].

My ancestral line back through one generation of this SMITH family line is:

1. Randall J. Seaver (1943-????)

2. Frederick Walton Seaver (1911-1983)
3. Betty Virginia Carringer (1919-2002)

6.  Lyle Lawrence Carringer (1891-1976)
7.  Emily Kemp Auble (1899-1977)

12.  Henry Austin Carringer (1853-1946)
13.  Abbie Ardelle "Della" Smith (1862-1944)

26.  Devier James Lamphier Smith (1849-1894)
27.  Abigail A. "Abbey" Vaux (1844-1931)

54.  Samuel Vaux (1816-1880)
55.  Mary Ann Underhill (1815-1883)

110.  Amos Underhill (1772-1865)
111.  Mary "Polly" Metcalf (1780-1855)

220.  John Underhill (1745-1816)
221.  Hannah Colby (1745-????)

440.  John Underhill (1720-1793)
441.  Joanna Healey (1718-1809)

882.  William Healey (1688-1772)
883.  Mary Samborne (1690-1790)

1764.  Samuel Healey, born 14 September 1662 in Cambridge, Middlesex, Massachusetts, United States; died after 1732 in Hampton Falls, Rockingham, New Hampshire, United States.  He was the son of 3528. William Healey and 3529. Phebe Green.  He married 26 May 1685 in Salisbury, Essex, Massachusetts, United States.
1765.  Hannah Smith, born about 1666 in Salisbury, Essex, Massachusetts, United States; died before September 1693 in Hampton Falls, Rockingham, New Hampshire, United States.

Children of Samuel Healey and Hannah Smith are:
*  Samuel Healey (1685-1697).
*  William Healey (1688-1772), married 1716 Mary Samborne (1690-1790).
*  Nathaniel Healey (1692-1774), married (1) 1712 Hannah Tilton (1689-1722); (2) 1722 Susanna Weare (1702-????); (3) 1751 Lydia Gove (1705-????).

The only resource I have for this Healey family is:

*  Malva Lynn Teed and Mary L. Emil, We Are Because They Were (1983), accessed on FHL US/CAN Microfilm 1033945, Item 6.

I don't have any idea who Hannah Smith's parents were.  They were probably one of the Smith couples who resided in Salisbury or Amesbury, Massachusetts in the 1660s.
