Smith Genealogy & History

Smith genealogy is one of the longest in the English-speaking world, dating back at least to the tenth-century record of one Ecceard Smith in County Durham, England. It is the most common surname in the United States, Australia, and the United Kingdom, there being over three million Smiths in the United States and five hundred thousand in the United Kingdom. The name began in a period when surnames were derived from a person's occupation rather than inherited from Smith family history. Smith is derived from the Old English smitan, meaning "one who works with metal" and originally referred chiefly to a blacksmith.
