info from Michael  

We started off at St. Thomas's in Kidderpore in Calcutta and after a few years we all moved to La Martinere Calcutta.  No doubt you are aware that there are 3 schools named La Martinere, one in Calcutta, the other in Lucknow (of Indian Mutiny fame) and the third one in Leone in France.  All of them were created by Major General Claude Martin (of the French Army).  Leaving school after doing 'Senior Cambridge exams I started a 5 year Marine Engineering apprenticeship at The Shalimar Shipbuilding and Engineering Works in Shibpore.  My brother Geoffrey started a 5 year Cadet-ship at about the same time as I started my apprenticeship, with The India Steamship Company based in Calcutta.
I joined The Bank Line after doing 5 years  to sail as the humble 6th engineer on the M.V. Teakbank.  Little did I know that my first trip would be around 17 months before we got back to Cal!!  Being a sucker for punishment I signed on again as 5th Engineer and did a further 18 months and finally signed off in Vizag.  All of us by then had clearance to immigrate to Australia.  I went first after spending 2 months with Mum and Dad.  I left for Oz about a year before they did and continued my Marine Engineering Career serving mainly on Shell tankers and Oil Rig supply vessels till around 1986 after doing my Chief's Certificate.  Most of that time I lived in Melbourne.  I was stationed in Balcatta WA for about 2 years while working on the supply vessels off the WA coast.  Some of the AI's from school days lived there but I think they have all passed.  Janet ran a Graphics business for a number of years (she has retired recently) and lives in Aspley, my brother lives near her and like myself served on the Oz coast.

Next Generation

John SMITH married ?, children:

  1. Alice Harriet Smith

Next Generation

Alice Harriet SMITH on 14 Oct 1876 in Agra married Edward Nicholas Carpenter BRADDON (b 1829 Cornwall, son of Henry Braddon)


(1891 UK Census showed Edward's occupation to be Agent General of Tasmania).

After leaving school Edward moved to India in 1847 and worked in a cousin's merchant firm, after which he managed indigo plantations. Braddon served in the Indian Mutiny in Purnea, then was employed as a civil servant for nineteen years. His longest employment was as a district officer, a position requiring much independent decision-making. Two books, Life in India (1872) and Thirty years of Shikar (1895), told of his Indian life.

To his chagrin, administrative changes saw Braddon forced into premature retirement. In 1878 he and his second wife moved to north-west Tasmania, an area which attracted many Anglo-Indians at that time. The Braddons purchased a small property near Leith. Thirty letters describing his early Tasmanian experiences and published under the title, 'A Home in the Colonies', appeared in the Statesman and Friend (Calcutta and Delhi) in the second half of 1878. These were republished in 1980.

A year after arriving in Tasmania, 'Ned' Braddon entered the House of Assembly where he soon shone as debater and strategist. He played a key role in the defeat of the Agnew government in 1887. Braddon was successively Minister for Lands and Works (1887-88), Agent-General in London (1888-93), Opposition leader (1893-94), and Premier (1894-99). His government largely restored Tasmanian finances, not least by wielding the 'Braddon Axe' in a determined reduction of government outlays. The Braddon government introduced proportional representation for House of Assembly elections, and challenged the Legislative Council through a Privy Council appeal that unsuccessfully sought a clarification of upper house powers. Braddon was knighted in 1891, and made Privy Councillor in 1897. The Braddon Government, the longest-serving to that time, fell in 1899, largely as a consequence of a scandal involving his Minister for Lands and Works, ET Miles.

A keen federalist, Braddon was a member of the Federal Council of Australasia (1888, 1895-99), serving as president in 1895. He topped the Tasmanian poll for the 1897-98 Federation Convention, where he worked to defend the rights of the states, sponsoring section 87 (the 'Braddon Blot') to protect small states' finances. He campaigned vigorously in the two federation referenda campaigns, and Tasmania's overwhelming 'Yes' votes were due in large part to his efforts. Braddon was elected to the first House of Representatives as a Free Trader, and died at Leith while still a member of the House of Representatives.

At the 1951 celebrations in honour of the jubilee of Federation, Braddon was the constitutional founder honoured by Tasmania. A memorial stands on Braddon's Lookout in Leith, Tasmania.

Hi, wonder if you can help me. I live in England but want to trace my family. I'm white/English but my grandad was Indian...He was born in meerut on 11/3/1933 and moved to England in about 1950-1952 and married my grandma shortly after. The name he used over here was William G Smith, but because he wasnt white, we think he may have changed his name. That's him on the left of the picture with my grandma and me on my grandma's lap...I'm afraid we don't know much as he didn't really talk about it. He passed away in 1985. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks... Chris Smith.
