Between the years of 1717 and 1776, approximately 250,000 Scots-Irish people emigrated from Ulster, Ireland to America. A great number of these settled in the Valley of Virginia. Among these were the forebears of the Prestons of Smithfield.
Smithfield descended in the Preston family for five generations. It was deeded to Preservation Virginia in 1959 by Janie Preston Boulware Lamb.
