Smiths of North Staffordshire, England
I have a very large family of Smiths on my tree (hundreds) who were born in the following villages. Blore, Swinscoe, Mayfield, Calton, Waterfall, Ilam, Ellastone and Stanton and in that general area of Staffs. If any of your smiths come from any of the villages mentioned above I would be pleased to hear from you and share info.
Good Irish luck to all Smith researchers...we need it more than others!!!
