Walter Thomas Smith may have been born on 16 May 1851 at Great Yarmouth, Norfolk.2,3,4 He was likely born on 11 September 1851 at Great Yarmouth, Norfolk.5 He was the son of James George Smith and Lydia Manthorpe.1 Walter Thomas Smith was baptized on Wednesday, 30 April 1856 at Great Yarmouth, Norfolk. Walter was baptised with three of his siblings.6

He was recorded as living with his parents and his brothers James, George, Marston, Arthur, Horatio, Edward and Alfred in the 1861 census at 33 Market Road, Great Yarmouth, Norfolk. He was recorded as being 9 years of age.1 Walter Thomas Smith was a sailor (specifically a sailmaker) and spent the early part of his life at sea circa 1870.7,8

Walter emigrated from England circa 1876.8 Walter arrived at Port Adelaide, South Australia, circa 1876. he was a crew member and apparently jumped ship.7,8

Walter was employed by the firm of Messrs. G. P. Harris, Scarfe and Co. (a major supplier of a broad range of household, agricultural and industrial items as well as manufacturer of leather goods such as saddles), and remained with them for 12 years. circa 1877.7

He married Lucy Deane, daughter of Alexander Charles Deane and Ann Dunne, at Trinity Church on Monday, 29 December 1879 at Adelaide.9,10 At this time his occupation was given as a labourer.11 Walter, aged 29 and Lucy Deane became the parents of Elbertha Smith on Thursday, 30 September 1880 at the Adelaide suburb of Gilberton.12 At this time his occupation was given as a sail maker.13 Walter, aged 30 and Lucy Deane became the parents of James Smith on Tuesday, 11 October 1881 at Gilberton.14 Walter Thomas Smith was a tentmaker in 1884.15 Walter, aged 33 and Lucy Deane became the parents of Edward Smith on Wednesday, 19 November 1884 at the Adelaide suburb of Parkside.16 Walter, aged 36 and Lucy Deane became the parents of Lillian Smith on Thursday, 24 May 1888 at Parkside.17

Walter was employed by the lighthouse service as a fourth lighthouse keeper at Tipara Lighthouse, in Tipara Reef, 14km from Port Hughes, South Australia, on 25 March 1890. His annual salary was £100, increased by £10 the following year..18,19

The life of a lighthouse keeper was described in a contemporary newspaper item:
One may conjecture concerning the life of the lightkeeper, but the full significance of his lot cannot be accurately grasped; only experience can demonstrate this. The pretty general idea is that it is lonesome, monotonous, and desolate. So it is, but a good deal more beside. Apart altogether from the many lonely hours spent in attendance on the light the position of the lightkeeper carries with it numerous other duties. Indeed, he is a veritable jack-of-all-trades; but unlike the old adage, he is at least a master of a good many of them. The daily routine is as comprehensive as it is varied, and includes cleaning, painting, repairing, roadmaking, driving, signalling, and taking observations as to the state of the weather, sea, sky, and temperature, and reading barometer. Observations are made every two hours. Before sundown the head keeper visits the lantern, and having satisfied himself that everything is ready, the lighting-up process is proceeded with directly the sun dips. As might be supposed, a good deal of care has to be exercised in the operation. The headkeeper remains in attendants until 10 p.m., when be is relieved by a second keeper, but during the night he unexpectedly visits the lantern to see if things are working smoothly. The second keeper takes watch from 10 to 2 a.m., and then the third keeper assumes charge. He remains until sunrise, extinguishes the light, and covers the lantern, throughout the day the men are employed in watches about the station, and there is much work to do.20

Walter was then employed as the third lighthousekeeper at Althorpe Island, South Australia, on 1 May 1891. His salary was increased substantially to £150.18 Walter, aged 40 and Lucy Deane became the parents of Lucy Smith on Saturday, 16 April 1892 at Parkside.21 Walter was then employed as the third lighthousekeeper at Troubridge Island Lighthouse, in Troubridge Island, South Australia, on 1 March 1893. His salary was increased to £130. He was delivered to his new place of service by the 'Govenor Musgrave'..18,22,23 For unclear reasons, his salary was reduced to £120.18

Walter, aged 42 and Lucy Deane became the parents of Arthur Smith on Friday, 20 April 1894 at Yorketown, South Australia.24,15,25 In August 1895 Walter caught a rare skua gull at Troubridge Island, South Australia and sent it's body to the Adelaide museum where it was mounted.26 His salary was increased to £150.18 Walter was then employed as the second lighthousekeeper at Cape Borda Lighthouse, in Kangaroo Island, South Australia, on 19 March 1896. His salary was increased by a 'telegraph allowance'.18

A meting of the Cape Borda Christian Endeavor Union was held at the Smith house, and Elbertha, Lillian and Lucy were all involved (and one was elected treasurer.)27 Walter and Lucy lived in August 1898 at Cape Borda, Kangaroo Island, South Australia.27

The Smith family hosted a social evening at their house at Cape Borda, Kangaroo Island, South Australia for the Cape Borda Christian Endeavor Society, and the three girls and two of the men contributed songs and recitations.28 A meeting of the Cape Borda Undenominational Church was held at his house at Cape Borda, Kangaroo Island, South Australia on Saturday, 17 December 1898 (as well as two years later).29,30

Walter Walter's exploits in rescuing some shipwreck survivors were recorded in the paper on 11 May 1899:
THE LOCH SLOY.
COMPLETE PARTICULARS.
DEEDS OF DEVOTION
HOW THE WRECK OCCURRED.
SOME GRAPHIC DETAILS.
The wreck of the Loch Sloy was the subject of general comment on Wednesday, and the utmost anxiety was manifested concerning the fate of the missing passenger, Mr. Kilpalrick, who was left by his companions some days ago at a waterhole within about three miles of the spot where the disaster occurred. The energetic and resourceful second keeper of the Cape Borda lighthouse, Mr. W. T. Smith. set out from the station to look for him at a very early hour on Wednesday, taking as a companion the courageous youth, George May, who brought the first news of the wreck to Cape Borda. Some comfort in the melancholy story of death and privation has been gained from the contemplation of the heroism aud devotion displayed by many of those persons whose names have been prominently mentioned in connection with the sad catastrophe. Captain Nichol as well as all his officers and the members of his crew, appear to have been cool and collected throughout the whole of the short but trying ordeal between the striking of the barque and her final destruction, while the passengers also bore themselves well in the terrible hour of trial. The survivors, also, displayed great loyalty towards each other, and in the midst of their tribulations they acted as only brave and high-spirited men could, although one of their number is a mere youth. The residents of Kangaroo Island deserve commendation, like-wise, for the promptitude with which they organised search expeditions and put themselves at the disposal of Captain Creaswell, who was organising the preparations for the relief of any survivors who might be found wandering in the thick scrub near the scene of the wreck, which is now known to have occurred at a cliffy point on the west coast, within 3 1/2 miles of Cape Couedie- To all the willing volunteers who offered their services to scour the woods and the coast it was not permitted to be of real service in the work of rescue, but the credit of good intentions must still be accorded to them. The chief praise in this respect has fittingly been given to the lightkeepers at Cape Borda, !or not only did they show prompt presence of mind in the hour of need but their efforts resulted in the salvation of Messrs. Mitchell and Simpson, two of the four known survivors of the disaster. Mr. Kopp, the head keeper, was unable to leave the light, but he had a most efficient and enthusiastic subordinate in Mr. Smith, the second keeper, who cheerfully faced the tough rocky tracks and the densely-growing scrub in order to push his way southwards in the direction whence the wanderers were travelling. Words can give no idea of the difficulty of the country to be traversed, with its sharp flinty rocks, its labyrinth of tree trunks, and its thick undergrowth. Well equipped with stores likely to be of service to those he sought, but which greatly hampered him in his progress, Mr. Smith pushed steadily on, and his reward was that it was granted to him to be the saviour of two at least of the shipwrecked men he sought. He tended them with great kindness and skill, and without a murmur made his way back to the lighthouse for assistance when it was found that they could not get to Cape Borda with his help alone. It was dark by the time his task was done, yet in the early light of Wednesday morning he had started again to search for the fourth of the survivors. The Marine Board, it is good to know, have recognised the devotion and humanity of the lighthouse staff by a special telegram of thanks. Mr. George May. the plucky youth of 15, who, notwithstanding the roughness of the way, persevered in his journey through Monday night so as to give early news of the wreck to Cape Borda and the outside world, is also worthy of particular and hearty commendation.31

Walter received hearty praise for his efforts to locate the missing passengers.32 Walter walked for 30 miles with scant provisions in search of the missing passengers.33

On 15 May 1899 Walter and George May left on horseback to search for the missing passenger, Kilpatrick.34 As part of the search for survivors, Walter made a brave descent of a 150 foot cliff in bad weather on a rope attached to a crowbar wedged into the cliffs.35,36,37,38 The body of Kilpatrick was found badly decomposed at Rocky River, Kangaroo Island, South Australia.39

In June 1899 Walter reported to the Marine Board by letter that he had found a large deposit of magnetic iron ore at Cape Borda, Kangaroo Island, South Australia, but once tested it was concluded that it was likely iron ore.40 Walter was employed It was when he was stationed at Cape Borda in 1899 that the barque Loch Sloy struck the rocks and foundered on the south coast of Kangaroo Island. On receiving the news of the disaster Mr. Smith set out in search of the survivors. He was successful in finding two, Messrs. Simpson and Mitchell, both men being in a very bad way having spent two weeks wandering in the bush without food or boots. After rescuing the two unfortunate men he again set out and joined in the search for Kilpatrick, a passenger on the Loch Sloy who got ashore alive, and was found some weeks afterwards. He descended the cliffs at great personal risk and recovered many bodies, which were afterwards buried. at Kangaroo Island, South Australia, in June 1899.7 With the aid of a Mr. May and his sons, Walter buried the bodies of two victims of the Loch Sloy.41

On Tuesday, 9 October 1900 the Smith family attended the harvest thanksgiving church services held in the telegraph office which was "tastefully decorated with vegetables, grown on the station, and wildflowers for the occasion." Walter and his three daughters all sung as soloists at the church service.42 Walter was then employed as the second lighthousekeeper at Lowly Point Lighthouse, in Point Lowly, South Australia, on 1 March 1902.18 Walter was then employed as the second lighthousekeeper at Penquin Island Lighthouse, in Penquin Island, Beachport, South Australia, on 9 November 1903.18 Walter was then employed as the head lighthousekeeper and keeper of the semaphore jetty lights at Port Adelaide Lighthouse, in Port Adelaide, South Australia, on 11 June 1904. His salary was increased to £160 and he was paid an allowance in lieu of quarters.18

In July 1906 the President of the Marine Board, Arthur Searcy, travelled to Kangaroo Island, South Australia to investigate 'alleged irregularities'.43 Walter was then employed in the place he was four years ago, but now head lighthousekeeper and postal officer, replacing the J. Kopp who was the head keeper when he was there previously at Kangaroo Island, South Australia, on 1 July 1906. He was initially paid £180 rising in 1908 to £210.18,44

Walter may have been the 'Mr. Smith' who conducted an experimental hay plot at Cape Borda, Kangaroo Island, South Australia.45

Walter In December 1907, Walter was commended for his ability to grow crops on Kangaroo Island in December 1907:
We were recently informed by a correspondent that Mr J. Smith, of the lighthouse [sic], Cape Borda, has (on land which in the past was said to be valueless) a fine crop of oats estimated to go 1½ ton of hay to the acre. Mr Smith has also grass growing round the lighthouse where, formerly, there was no vestige of any, and horses are occasionally turned out on it. The man who can produce grass where none grew before is certainly a benefactor to his country.46



On Saturday, 18 January 1908 the Smith family departed Harvey's Return, in Cape Borda, Kangaroo Island, South Australia for their annual holidays. On their journey to Adelaide, a large bushfire was observed on the island.47

In September 1908 a botanist (Dr. Rogers) visited Kangaroo Island, South Australia and expressed dismay that the kangaroos were not protected; in a move that did not seen ironical to the parties,Walter kept a young one for him and he presented it to the Zoo.48

On November 1908 Walter Thomas Smith He was asked to prepare a report in November 1908 on whether the flora and fauna was being trespassed on at Cape Borda, Kangaroo Island, South Australia and whether a reserve should be established. He said that there was little interference with the flora and fauna. He suggested that an area around the lighthouse be fenced to provide feed for sheep and firewood. This was agreed to by the Board. at Cape Borda, Kangaroo Island, South Australia.49,50,51

In February 1909,Walter compiled a report on the previous year at Kangaroo Island, South Australia and noted that they saw 233 steamers, 66 sailing ships and that 233 signals were shown to these vessels. In addition they did meteralogical work that was "becoming increasingly arduous and complicated".52

Walter sent a telegram to the South Australian Homing Pigeon Association in July 1909 that he had found one of their birds at Cape Borda, Kangaroo Island, South Australia and the Association was very thankful.53,54

A complaint was lodged with the Marine Board that the Cape Borda light was left unattended on 16 November 1909; when the keepers replied that they were all involved in moving stores, they were admonished and told that someone needed to on duty at all times; if it needs to be, "it can be the keeper's wife".55

On 27 April 1910 Walterwas allocated 635 acres (nearly a square mile) of crown land at Kongorong, South Australia (section 496) seven miles west of the town for £1349.56,15

It was reported on Friday, 22 July 1910 that the telegraph at Cape Borda, Kangaroo Island, South Australia was out of service; it had just been repaired after a week of outage.57

He retired from the lighhouse service before March 1911.18,58

His mother died circa March 1911 at the approximate age of 93.

On Saturday, 18 November 1911, Walter was told that his application for a loan of £112 for wire netting for vermin control was rejected because the application needed to be made before the money was spent.59 Walter (and presumably his spouse Lucy) lived in August 1912 at Kongorong, South Australia.60

Walter chaired a 'patriotic meeting and social' held in the Council Chamber, in Kongorong, South Australia on Wednesday, 30 September 1914 and spoke in sympathy of the Belgians who were suffering in the War. The group then sang 'God Save the King' and attended a euchre party and dance. The Smith family contributed 10 shillings to the Belgian Relief Fund.61 He was a farmer in the South-East after leaving the lighthouse service in 1910 circa 1915.7

On Friday, 10 September 1915 it is likely that Walter and Lucy attended the retirement function of Mr. J Hilton, head keeper at Cape Bank Lighthouse.62

Walter's son Arthur began military service on Thursday, 14 October 1915 with the Light Horse at age 21.25

Walter's son Edward began military service on Monday, 17 April 1916 with the 2nd Depot Battalion at age 31 His service number was 2031.63

Walter and presumably Lucy attended an Australia Day celebration on Friday, 28 July 1916 (held on that date in 1916) that went through out the day, ending in an evening concert. He contributed 10 shillings.64 Taken on strength.65,66,67,15

Walter made a speech on Saturday, 17 March 1917 in support of some wounded local soliders that had returned home.68 News was received on Thursday, 17 May 1917 that his son Edward was missing, and had been missing since 11th April.69,67,70 News was received on Wednesday, 20 June 1917 that his son Edward was severely wounded and was a prisoner of war in Germany.69,67

Walter hosted an entertaining surprise party for Mr Uphill who had enlisted.71

Walter was a Justice of the Peace.61,72

It seems that Walter and Lucy's land at Kongorong, South Australia was forfeited under a Closer Settlement Agreement due to non-payment of arrears (the newspaper incorrectly states that this applied to Section 696; the Smiths held Section 496). This land was then noted as an 'abandoned block' and made available for selection 4th of September 1919. It was then granted to their son Edward in January 1920.73,74,75,76

Walter wrote to the council saying that "he had been directed by the Secretary for Lands to approach the Council re poisoning the unallotted Crqwn Lands in the [Hundred] of Kongorong, and offered to supply horse and driver for the poison cart at 14/ per day." This offer was accepted.77 News was received in February 1919 that his son Edward had been returned to England.69,67 Walter's son Edward was discharged from military service on Thursday, 27 November 1919 at age 35.78 Walter Thomas Smith was retired circa 1921 at the Adelaide suburb of Magill.7,79

In 1922 Walter and Lucy purchased a house in Adelaide.15 Walter Thomas Smith and Lucy Deane celebrated their golden wedding anniversary on 29 December 1929.80 Walter and Lucy lived on 4 January 1930 at at 71 Gladstone Avenue in the Adelaide suburb of Magill.81

Walter died suddenly on 19 March 1930 at Gladstone Avenue, in Magill, South Australia, at age 78.7,82 An extensive obituary was published on 31 March 1930.83

He had to make his way on foot through heavily timbered, rugged country for a distance of about thirty miles to where it was supposed the survivors would be found.

    It having been alleged that the country around Cape Borda light station set apart as a reserve for the protection of its fauna and flora, was being trespassed upon, the President of the Marine Board asked the head keeper of the lighthouse (Mr. W. T. Smith) for a report. In his statement, which was read before the board on Thursday, Mr. Smith mentioned that no damage that he was aware of had been done to the flora. Everything was left in a state of Nature. The smaller fauna, such as the wallaby and opossum, were not so numerous as before the large bush fire last summer. The kangaroos were increasing, being more numerous than formerly owing to the country being more open, with an increased amount of feed. There had not been so much trapping done daring the last two years. He had cautioned one or two parties not to trap on the reserve, and he did not think they had since done so; but owing to the reserve not being fenced or ihe boundary defined he could make no definite statement on the point. He suggested that he be given authority- with respect to the reserve; that the boundary be fenced or defined by peg line; that a light riding horse and feed be supplied, with leave granted to the head keeper to visit at his option any part of the reserve, and that about four miles be done around the lighthouse. The lastnamed provision would secure an abundance of firewood to the lightkeepers for all time, and would also provide the keepers with sufficient country to obtain fresh meat without encroaching on the part set aside for fauna and flora.).

    Mr. Walter Thomas Smith, who died suddenly at Gladstone-avenue, Magill. was bom at Great Yarmouth in 1851, and spent the early part of his life on the sea. He arrived in South Australia in 1876. Mr. Smith joined the firm of Messrs. G. P. Harris Scarfe and Co.. and remained with them for 12 years. He left their employ to enter the South Australian lighthouse service, where he spent 20 years, and was stationed at most of the lighthouses on the South Australian coast. It was when he was stationed at Cape Borda in 1899 that the barque Loch Sloy struck the rocks and foundered on the south coast of Kangaroo Island. On receiving the news of the disaster Mr. Smith set out in search of the survivors. He was successful in finding two, Messrs. Simpson and Mitchell, both men being in a very bad way, having spent two weeks wandering in the bush without food or boots. After rescuing the two unfortunate man he again set out and joined in the search for Kilpatrick, a passenger on the Loch Sloy, who got ashore alive, and was found some weeks afterwards. He descended the cliffs at great personal risk and recovered many bodies, which were afterwards buried. After leaving the light service in 1910 he engaged in farming pursuits in the South-East, and latterly was living in retirement at Magill. In December 1879 he was married to Lucy Deane daughter of the late Alexander Charles Deane. There are three sons and two daughters — Mr. James Smith, of Sydney; Mr. Edward Smith, of Mount Gambler: Mr. Arthur Smith, of Mile-End: and Mrs. G. W. Richards, of Woodville, and Miss Lucy Smith.).
