SMALE Family History

Recorded in many forms including Small, Smale, Smalles, Smailes (English) Small, Smaile, Smellie, Smiles (Scotland), Schmal and Schmall (German), Smal (Dutch) and others, this is a European name. It is one of a group of early surnames which were gradually created from the habitual use of nicknames. These were given in the first instance with reference to a variety of personal qualities, and in this case was probably a reference to a large person, in other words the opposite of what it seems to describe.
