Hello Sam, welcome to Rootschat  :D

As Aghadowey has said, we do require a bit more information in order to assist you.

Year/Place of birth

Year/Place of death

Last known place of residence

The more information you can provide, the better we shall be able to assist you in your quest.

As I am sure you don't need me to tell you, there are zillions of Smiths in the world  ::)

Out of idle curiosity I googled most common surnames and came up with the below

The most common surnames in Britain and Ireland (2016)

Smith (more than 400,000 bearers in 1881, 500,000 today)
Jones (more than 300,000 in 1881; currently 400,000)
Williams (just over 200,000 in 1881, nearly 300,000 now)
Brown and Taylor (both just under 200,000 in 1881, now over 250,000)
Johnson (just over 100,000 in 1881, now more than 150,000)
Lee (just under 50,000 in 1881, now nearly 84,000)

As you can see Smith tops the list!
