I'm new to this so forgive me barging in!!  I apparently have French Huguenots way back - in 1861 they were Ivory Comb manufacturers in Bradford, Yorks, and were called Simonett, but I know nothing about where they originated from.  The earliest mention of the family I have found is a John Simonett born about 1720.

Regards,
Maggie

Hello Maggie  :)
Welcome to Rootschat. 8)
I have had a look on the CD and there is one reference to SIMONI born in Italy.
 I had a look for any other references and came up with these web site. They all see to think the name originated from Italy  ::)
