I have little to go on, but have been told they were Dutch Jews who moved to England to avoid religious persecution. The name has been changed to Simonds, Simons, Symons, Simmons.maybe information is too vague, but it is all i have to go on. a researcher in England told me that the name Symonds is not of English origin.

start with the last person who arived in usa ( whole name, place of origin, dob, dod,etc)
with this info you can find the l ocation of the vital records for them in uk and can contact them.(use a goodle search for addresses) there are some free bmd records online for uk.

wherever you start you need a whole name at minimum.
