Hello all my relatives!
Well, I am from the caribbean and none of these names gives me a hint!!
Are you a member of the Smart family from St. Vincent?
I have no English relatives that I know about.. I'm from Scotland and as far as I'm aware, my great-grandparents were too?
ive always been told and past research show "Smart" origin to be Austrian (not Austrailian) and the spelling was Smryte....
My GrandMother was born born in England, her maiden Name Jonhnston and she Married My GrandFather his Surname Stephens they hd 3 Chilen me Edna, & Dorothy & Frank Dorothy Married Clarance Smart his Mother Name Alice Emily Smart when she Married Joesph Henry Smart My GrandParents with l did not know my GrandFather he died when my oldest sister was only 2 months old.
My great grandparents came from Ireland so who knows.
My branch of the family Smart come from Glasgow, Scotland and I was always told that the name was akin to the MacKenzie clan - so I can see something in what Chris says.
I would expect that an archer would be quick on his feet so this possibility should not be ruled out completely. Also vowels changed from Old English to Middle English to Modern English and so smart was often pronounced/spelled smert or smertt. There was a mad poet called Christopher Smart you may want to look up he is a very interesting character. How about someone set up a web site called the Smart Files? I have lots of research but useless on web design I'm afraid
You're all wrong and so is th article!!! Smart comes from the most ancient of it's derivations - to sting/burn. The arms of the family Smart consist of some very nasty looking arrows. These would certainly 'smart!' Hence, the Smart's were archers - the name arose in two places almost simultaneously. The Smart's are a sept of the clan McKenzie and guess what function they fulfilled. The other area the name arose from was Suffolk were they fulfilled the same function. One of the motto' s of the famil Smart is 'Ette weel' - Aim well! Come on guys - research better!
