The Family Name

Various references record the family name as Smuck, Schmuck, Smock, Smooke, Smoke and Smoak. Most of the later descendants use the name Smuck. The descendants of Peter use the name Smoke.

The Upper Canada Land Petition records Jacob's request for Concession 4, Lot 1, Glanford using the surname Smoke. Smoak was used for Jacob in an article in Volume 8 of Wentworth Bygones, pp. 66-68 titled "Crown Patentees of Glanford".
