Of all the Anglo-Saxon names to come from Britain, Smailplwude is one of the most ancient. The name is a result of the original family having lived in the township of Smallwood in the parish of Astbury in the county of Cheshire. Habitation names form a broad category of surnames that were derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland.
