My grandfather JAMES SMITH was born at Emerald Hill which is now known as South Melbourne - Australia (His grand daughter won 62 grand slam tennis titles.) His parents were JAMES AND KATE SMITH (nee) MYERS.
His father JAMES WILLIAM (or WILLIAM JAMES) SMITH was from either Watton or Waltham Hertfordshire England- He married CHARLOTTE SMITH (maiden name) on 16th May 1823. JAMES SMITH my great grand father was born thirteen years later on 16th October in 1836. So I guess he would have been one of the younger siblings.(I would love to know where the rest of the family if any - ended up.)
You can imagine what it has been like trying to track down the name SMITH - I have even sent letters to the editor of the local newspapers in England without success. You have no idea the number of JAMES SMITHS (no second name) that came to Australia from the 1850's onwards. Hoping there is someone out there that is related as we are a little short of relatives on the Smith line.
