Many clues regarding the early history of the Womack families come from the records of the Cutlers Company of Hallamshire.

The Book ‘HISTORY OF THE COMPANY OF CUTLERS IN HALLAMSHIRE in the County of York’ by Robert Eadon Leader contains an appendix listing the members of the Cutlers Company including Masters and their Apprentices. This may be available as a download in PDF format from Sheffield Indexers

Transcripts of these in tabular form are provided by Sheffield Records On-Line Here you can select the Data Menu from the list on the right and then cutlers from the bar at the top. Then you select Masters or Apprentices, and then the surname that you wish to search for. The earliest Womack is Richard Womack (1708 – 1754), a husbandman of Thorpe (Hesley). Many of his sons were apprenticed to cutlers.
