Notes

Note
Charles ‎(David or ?John Charles cf Joan's notes)‎ Smith born 1856, died 30.10.1912 at Nannine stock yards.

Son of Richard and Sara Smith ‎(nee Bostrom)‎ of "Belinda" Mingenew.

Charles was manager there when he married Mary Ann Morrissey of "Yarragadee" ‎(originally called “Arigid-de’” – in Gaelic Arigid meaning gold or money, De’ meaning “of God” or in “Ancient Landmarks” by M.A. Bain (p.20 –footnote 27)‎ the following is found:“Yarracadee” ‎(Yarragathee)‎: yarra = to run; cadee = in a flowing manner; the waterhole where the river flows downhill).

Other properties owned by Charles Smith - Milgun, Ethel Creek, Sylvania, Bulloo Downs, Greenwood and Ilgarari.

Charles Smith - who had properties and cattle interests as far north as Ethel Creek - was away from home a great deal, so his wife ‎(Mary Ann)‎ and children remained at Yarragadee for some years. When it was sold, Mary Ann with her children ‎(Maud, Helen, Rita, Mary & Alma)‎ and spinster sisters moved to "Fairholme" Guildford.

Some four years after the death of his first wife Mary Ann ‎(d.10.May1895)‎, Charles married her sister, Teresa Morrissey ‎(also widowed)‎.

Charles bought "Wong Gong" near Armadale in 1906 for Teresa.

However, in the early 1900s, Charles & Teresa and her sons – Fred and Frank Morrissey - from her first marriage to her 1st cousin Michael ‎(“Little Mike”)‎ Morrissey, moved to Fairholme where she and Charles together had five more children ‎(Dorothy, Grace, Jack, Laurie & Hilary)‎.

This large extended family lived at Fairholme until it was taken over by the Military in 1942. After the war it was returned to them and Jack Smith, who inherited it, lived there with his wife and daughter until it was sold in 1950 and became a hospital.
