SMYLIE Family HistoryThis name has two possible origins. The first, and most likely being a dialectually transposed locational name from a place in Derbyshire called Smalley, recorded as Smalleagh in Ancient Manuscripts of that county, dated 1009 and as Smalei in the Domesday Book of 1086. The surname from this source is first recorded in Scotland in the latter half of the 13th Century, (see below). The second distinct possibility is that the name derives from the Medieval English "smile" and originally given as a nickname to one of cheerful disposition.
