Funny, I was always told that my branch of the Womacks were Scottish immigrants.
All my family are from Norfolk, although I have found family in Australia so they have travelled. There are no boys to carry our name on, which is why I double barrelled it with my husbands name so that my sons can carry it on.
I did not know that there was other womacks around the world. I thought we were only in England, alabama, Texas ,and Tennessee.
My great grandmother is a womack and shes from Arkansas. Live in CA.
My dads side of the family is from Oklahoma, and there still there and have been for years...
I was always told it was Scottish or English but that could have been my grandmothers side of the family.
Very interesting to search and see what is in your last name,opens up a lot of questions.

I am from the UK and as far as I can ascertain, the name is from Norfolk in England.
There is an area in Norfolk called the Norfolk Broads, (an area of inland waterways) an on those waterways is one called Womack Water. If you think about it, most of the settlers to the US left from Kings Lynn in Norfolk and landed as far as I am aware in the Louisiana area of the US, and that is where the majority of Womacks still live.
I have also found a link somewhere to warriors that came to the UK with two princes and that the name Womack or its derivative actually originated from Jutland.
