ABSTRACT
Smith, William (1769-1839) was an English geologist and is widely viewed as the founder of English geology. He was the first to recognize a regular succession in the strata, or horizontal layers, of the earth's crust of England. He was also the first to recognize that many individual beds contained fossils particular only to that layer and that fossils could help determine the relative age of the different strata.
