EARLY ADELAIDE. Survey and Land Grants. Names index A-E

Journal by AliciaG

Whilst searching online for one of my ancestors, Hibernia Smyth, I found a letter to the editor by him that had been reproduced in a New Zealand publication but had originally been published an Adelaide newspaper. So I tried searching in Trove database of digitised Australian newspapers.
Among other things I found this article about the early land grants in Adelaide with a full list of names. I wasn't even aware Hibernia had been in Australia before coming to New Zealand so I figured the list might be useful to others and I haven't been able to find it anywhere else online.
So I have created an alphabetical index to the personal names in the land grants. To read the original article follow this link.
The numbers beside each name relate to plot numbers, the article and accompanying map will help you locate where in Adelaide they are.
I have divided the list into several portions to keep my posts from being too long

Hi AliciaG, I came across your post while I was hunting for Hibernia Smyth for one of my children who is researching their cultural heritage. My husband's family is descended from Hibernia Smyth's father (Richard) who married into a Maori tribe up north for a short period of time. Hibernia and his dad moved down to Auckland to avoid the fighting up north, and purchased quite a bit of land in the foothills of Titirangi. Kaurilands School has a stream running through it called Hibernia Stream, which I believe was named after him. I was quite excited to discover a few articles about him in some ancient Glen Eden Journals I found at school. My husband found an article in the Auckland Library some years ago that said they came from Sikerbeen in County Cork.

Hi makonz
Alicia Ann Smyth (married Wilfrid Adlington) was my great grandmother. Her parents were Richard Smyth and Maria Smyth and Hibernicus Fenton Bleazby Smyth was her brother. Maria's father was Captain Hibernicus Scott Smyth. Maria and Richard were cousins. It can get a bit confusing figuring out what Hibernia/Hibernicus/Hibbie Smyth is being talked about sometimes.
There has been a green booklet done on the Smyth family tree some years ago, I'm still trying to get my hands on my mum's copy to get the full details but I know it goes several generations back in Ireland. I'm planning to scan it and can send you a copy by email if you don't have it.

Hi makonz
Have just got hold of my copy of the Smith Smyth Smythe booklet which was compiled by Daphne Smythe Hamilton in the 1980s. It claims to have details of all the descendents of Capt. Hibernicus Scott Smyth but the family you mention don't seem to be in it. I can't find any mention of Captain Smyth's father Richard coming to NZ and it says he died in 1831 before Captain Smyth and his family immigrated to the Southern Hemisphere. However Captain Smyth has a son Hibernicus Richard Smyth and a son-in-law/nephew named Richard Hibernicus Smyth (my great great grandfather)and as mentioned above, Richard Hibernicus Smyth has a son called Hibernicus Fenton Bleazby Smyth.
What dates do you have?
Capt. Hibernicus Scott Smyth with is wife Sarah and his infant son Hibernicus Richard arrive in Adelaide 1837. A daughter Esther is born there before they come to NZ in 1839 and Capt. Smyth buys land from Maori at Manganui. In March 1854 he he was granted 341 acres in the Waitakeres, also owned land at Mt Albert known as the Prince of Wale Estate and in the 1860s had 500 acres at Titirangi.
Hibernicus Richard Smyth owns land at Titirangi and marries Kathleen Templey about 1908, they are not listed as having any descendents.
Richard Hibernicus Smyth is the son of Robert Travers Smyth and Charlotte Bleazeby he was born 1838. He came to NZ in 1859 with his brothers Robert and Samuel and started up a logging and timber mill in the Waitakere, where he was known as the govenor. He purchased over 400 acres of land in Valley Road, Henderson (although my research suggests it was his wife Maria who actually bought the land). He married Maria Smyth, his cousin and daughter of Captain Smyth, in 1867. They had 9 children. He died in 1930.
Let me know how this fits with your research.
