Far Easton

When Smith Smithson, the title character of the story Smith of Wootton Major, became a smith (following his father) it was said that he was the best between Far Easton and the Westwood.[1]

In the United Kingdom there are three Eastons: One is a council ward within the city of Bristol. In Essex there are two – "Little Easton", a village that dates to the twelfth century, and "Great Easton", a village one mile north of Little Easton.
