John and Mary Smith were my great-great grandparents. Their son Arthur John Smith was Vicar of Levens, Cumbria from 1864-1912. Their grandson Walter Henry emigrated to Port Elizabeth, South Africa where he married on 16 Sept 1908 and died on 23 Oct 1925 aged 47, leaving 3 children Katherine Alicia Phyllis 1909, Arthur Walter 1911 (my father) and Thomas Keightley 1913.
