Among the first immigrants of the name Harrowsmithe, or a variant listed above to cross the Atlantic and come to North America were: Elizabeth Arrowsmith who settled in America in 1718; followed by John in 1734; and Martha in 1737; Thomas Arrowsmith settled in Virginia in 1670; Daniel Arrowsmith settled in Savanna, GA. in 1865..
