E. Smith and Son were British printers active in the mid-nineteenth century. In around 1870 they were joined in Bicester, Oxfordshire, by the London printer Thomas William Pankhurst. By 1886 the company was named Smith and Pankhurst, with Pankhurst living above the premises. The company was responsible for the re-launch of the Bicester Advertiser in 1879, and the publishing of the Bicester Almanac and Directory.
