Simms Genealogy & History

Simms is an English patronymic surname from Sim or Simme, a diminutive of the Greek name Simon, related to the Hebrew Shimeon, which means he who hears. In the Old Testament, both Shimeon and Simeon are used. The name likely became more common during and after the Crusades, as returning warriors marked their experiences with a name change. Simms family history begins in 1379, when Robert Symmes was entered in the Poll Tax Returns Records of Yorkshire. Simms genealogy includes several noteworthy people, such as murdered labor leader Harry Simms, Confederate Kentucky Senator William Sims, and Giants quarterback and CBS sportscaster Phil Simms.
