This is known as a 'work in progress' website. There's plenty of information on the site, but lots more
available and equally as much still to be researched. It will be updated as regularly as possible.
The term 'Symonett' throughout the site is used to cover all variations of the name –
it is one of the earliest spellings we came across.

The earliest record of the Symonett name dates back to the 13th century in France, but not until 14th century in England. The earliest church record entry was in 1558. Throughout the centuries the name has appeared in the north of England, predominately Yorkshire, with a couple of families living in the south – mostly around London.
......This is not just a personal family website. It contains many of the Symonetts we have found during our research which has taken us from the south of England to the Midlands searching the church records in the archives in London, Sheffield and Nottinghamshire, the births, deaths and marriage records from the Families Record Office in London plus the 1851 to 1901 census. The spelling of the name has changed many times, with each family line going through an interesting variety over the years. Now that websites offer the complete census and BMD details some inaccurate transcriptions have compounded the problem even more. You may find yourself looking through the entire Symonett variants (including Simnet and Simonds) before you find what your looking for. That aside, the web has now become one of the most important family search tools.
......Although we now have a family tree dating back to the early 16th century, we have yet to find a link to other branches. We hope this website will be helpful to you in your research and if you have any further information please contact us direct or use the FamilySearch page.
......Spellings on this site are as found. If you see any problems then please let us know.
Special thanks must go to John Simmonett, a distant cousin who helped us in the early research.
