Date: 15 April 1902
Place: Christ Church Burial Ground, Newcastle
Source: NMH
Details: Right in the corner of the church yard near the entrance gate, there is a substantial but time worn tomb, in which were buried several members of the Smith family. The head of the house who was familiarly called Gentleman Smith, was quite a character in his way, and for years resided in a house at the corner of King and Pacific Streets, which is now occupied by Mr. McFarlane. He was in many respects a quaint personage and for years kept his coffin in a room and the back of the dwelling. The coffin was made of polished cedar but the lid which was a beautiful piece of timber was stolen by a man working about the place, and converted into other uses. Another eccentricity was the old mans habit of hiding money in odd corners. One day an old servant was rummaging about in the cellar, when he discovered quite a large sum in guineas which had been planted there for years. Smith built the Naval Brigade HOtel and the white buildings which stand on the south side of King Street facing his residence. Many years ago he is reputed to have worked the old coal shaft upon which the bowling green in the big Reserve is situated. He died a wealthy man leaving large property interests in the city
