David Smyth

M, #12473, b. 1838, d. 1918
Related* David Alexander Smyth unclear at this stage which one of these was the landholder, but David Smyth (1838-1918) seems the more likely. 
Birth*1838 Donegal, Ireland.

Marriage-Notice*5 Nov 1874SMYTH-COLE.-On the 4th inst., by the Rev. Robert Lewers, David Smyth to Mary Jane Cole, both of Sandhurst.2 
Land-UBeac*14 Aug 1876David Smyth selected land from the Crown. GEM--42. 99a 3r 38p - on his land he built a 2-roomed log and shingle house 24x14ft, fenced 55 chains, and 2 1/4 acres of potatoes and cabbages (before 6 Aug 1878). He stated that he had resided on the land, and that his family lived in Berwick, where he had another abode.3 
(Witness) Land-Note20 Feb 1878 Packenham, Febr 20th 1878
To A J Skene Esq., Surveyor General of Victoria, Melbourne
Sir, We the selectors and residents of Gembrook and Packenham County of Mornington humbly request that you will please order that a new road may be surveyed through the selection of Mr Arthur Knight in the Parish of Packenham. This road we request will be to start from the north east corner of Mr Knight's selection, thence south west distant at about five chains more or less and being west from the two chain road and thence ending at the south east corner of the said selection. This new line of road will be on the side of a very high hill and with little expense can be made into a very good road. The present one chain road is too steep that it is almost impossible for us to get either up or down it and ought never to have been surveyed in that place. Trusting that you will give this a favourable consideration.
We have the honor to be, Sir, your most obedient servants.

Land-Note*14 Mar 1881 A Mrs McClelland asks that when Smyth attends to sign this lease she may be telegraphed to at her address Robe Street St Kilda and the signature delayed for say one hour in order that she may be present when the lease is executed. I see no objection to this as Mrs McClelland is prepared to meet any demand that may be made on a/c of such detraction(?)
Smyth called today 16/3/81. Mrs McClelland told by telegram to be here 12 o'clock tomorrow the 17th inst.5
