Smoot, Smoote, Smoots, Smout, Smute

Background

The Smoot surname in America starts with William Smute, born about 1596 in England. Although the name is thought to be Dutch in origin, the original William Smute came from England as a boatwright around 1630. Through the study of the DNA of his descendants, we may be able to determine not only his direct descendants but also the origins of the name Smoot.
