    Biography Notes
    • Some of the family notes, which are intertwined in research, give Mr Smith the title of "Lord William Bacon-Smith" but he does not show up in Burke's peerage.

      He was born in 1824 and buried in Milang aged 52 years on 9/8/1876, so was deceased by the time of the wedding of his only daugher, Mary to Donald Henry McLean.

      It was said too, that Captain John Smith of the "Titanic" which was lost in 1912 was his brother, but even if much younger, it was unlikely that he would still be at sea in 1912. A nephew perhaps, as the story persists!
