Sims Genealogy & History

Sims genealogy is Scottish and originates in East Lothian, specifically among the ancient Boernician tribes. It is a late form of patronymic meaning "son of Simon". The name Simon was originally a given name with two origins. One origin is Biblical, from the Hebrew "Shimon", meaning "he who hearkens". This could become the names Simon or Simeon. The other origin is Greek from the word "simos", meaning a person with a small or flat nose. Early American Sims family history includes Andrew Sims, who landed in Virginia in the 1630s and Bartholomew Sims who also came to Virginia in the 1660s.
