William Smith

ID# 2098, born 19 April 1819, died 12 February 1877
Father*Thomas Smith
Mother*Marion Lindsay
     William Smith, son of Thomas Smith and Marion Lindsay, was born in Harelaw, Carstairs, Lanarkshire, Scotland, on Monday, 19 April 1819.1
     He was Baptised on Monday, 3 May 1819.1
     

     William Smith was married to Ann Maxwell Black on Tuesday, 30 March 1852 at Lauder, Berwickshire, Scotland.2

     William Smith was born at Harelaw, Carstairs, and was educated at Pettinain School and Edinburgh University.

He was licensed by the Presbytery of Kirkcaldy in 1845 and served as a tutor in the Minto, Rothes and Rollo families. He was presented by James, Earl of Lauderdale, and ordained on December 25, 1845 in Lauder, Berwickshire. He was transferred to Trinity Parish, Edinburgh on December 25, 1857, thence to North Leith parish on March 15, 1860. He was convenor of the Endowment Committee in 1860, was awarded a DD in 1869, published "Endowed Territorial Work", and was Baird Lecturer in 1875" (Source: Fasti Ecclesiae Scoticanae, Vol. I, pp. 130, 157; Vol. II, p. 154).

In 1844, William Smith, Minto, was in the Advanced Hebrew Class in the Faculty of Divinity, University of Edinburgh. He placed second for diligence and proficiency, and had the best essay entitled "On the Character and Writings of David" (Scotsman, May 1, 1844).

At the time of the 1851 census, William Smith was the Minister of Lauder. He had not yet married, and his widowed mother, Marion Lindsay, an annuitant, had come to live with him in the Manse. Two servants also lived with them: Margaret Blackie (48), house servant, and Margaret Fairbairn (12), errand girl and scholar.

"MID-LOTHIAN COAST ARTILLERY VOLUNTEERS - The officers of this regiment entertained the Lieutenant-Colonel, Sir James Gardiner Baird, Bart., at dinner yesterday evening in the Hopetoun Rooms, Queen Street. The Rev. William Smith, minister of North Leith, honorary chaplain to the regiment, was also present"
(Scotsman, November 9, 1860).

"FUNERAL OF THE REV. PROFESSOR JAMES ROBERTSON - The remains of the late Dr. Robertson were interred yesterday afternoon in .. the West Church Burying Ground. The relatives and intimate friends of the decased assembled in his house in Ainslie Place ... where appropriate devotional exercises were conducted by the Rev. Dr. Paul and the Rev. Professor Crawford. The funeral procession ... was very large. The coffin was borne shoulder-high; while all the mourners followed on foot; and, notwithstanding the incessant rain, the cortege was accomapnied along the route by a large number of spectators." The Rev. William Smith, North Leith, was one of the pall-bearers
(Scotsman, Dec. 7, 1860).

In his 1861 will, William Smith had appointed as Trustees John Tulloch, Principal of St. Mary's College, St.Andrews; John Black, merchant, Borneo Company Limited, then residing in Manchester (probably William Smith's brother-in-law); Rev. William Dell, Minister of Colmonel, Ayrshire; Hew Hamilton Crichton, writer to the Signet; and John Romanes, of Paterson and Romanes, writers to the Signet. His estate, including the proceeds from life insurance policies, was to be placed in a trust, with the proceeds to be paid out to his widow twice a year, at Whitsunday and Martinmas. The will also obliges his widow to "maintain, educate and support" their children "in a manner suitable to their station in life." The trustees were also allowed the latitude to to advance up to 300 GBP to any of the children as they may deem advisable and proper for the purpose of "forwarding the views in life" of the children. Upon the death of his widow, the estate was to be divided equally among the children. The will was written by David Sutherland, Clerk to Messrs Tait and Quenton, writers to the Signet, and was executed by William Smith at Bonnington, near Edinburgh, witnessed by John Robertson Liddell, Student of Divinity and Patrick Adair Black, Merchant, Glasgow (probably William Smith's wife's uncle). John Tulloch (1823-1886), one of the trustees in William Smith's will, met William Smith at Edinburgh University and formed a lasting friendship with him. In 1875, Tulloch was appointed Chief Clerk of the general assembly of the Church of Scotland, and "from that time he was the most prominent churchman in Scotland". In 1878 he was appointed Moderator, a post which he held for a year.

The degree of Doctor of Divinity was conferred honoris causa tantum on William Smith, Minister of North Leith, and seven others, in 1869. The graduants are nominated by the Senatus Academicus and are presented to the Chancellor by the Dean of the Faculty of Divinity
(University of Edinburgh, List of Graduates, 1859-88, Manuscript Book 1, p. 109).

"UNIVERSITY OF EDINBURGH - INSTALLATION OF CHANCELLOR AND GRADUATION CEREMONIAL - The formal installation of the Lord Justice-General as Chancellor of the University of Edinburgh took place yesterday, at noon, in the Music Hall, after which the degrees in Divinity, Law, Arts and Science were conferred, and the newly installed Chancellor delivered an inaugural address. A brilliant assemblage of ladies and gentlemen were present at the ceremonial. The centre of the hall was occupied by graduates and members of the General Council of the University, the side seats were set apart for the friends of the graduates, and the galleries were filled with ladies. The members of the University Court and the gentlemen selected to receive honorary degrees were attired in academic robes, as were the graduates who appeared to have their degrees conferred upon them ... Before the ceremony, Professor Oakeley played on the organ "The Coronation Anthem" by Handel; and afterwards a student's song "Alma Mater" by Professor Oakeley ... Professor Crawford, Dean of the Faculty of Theology, presented the seven gentlemen whom the Senatus Academicus had deemed worthy to receive the degree of Doctor in Divinity, each gentleman receiving the degree amidst applause upon being presented to the Chancellor ... Professor Crawford, in presenting the Rev. William Smith, said - The next person whom I have the privilege of naming is the Rev. William Smith - (applause) - minister of North Leith, a distinguished alumnus of this University, and a singularly able and assiduous parish minister, one who was worthily elected by the Church of Scotland to succeed the late lamented Professor Robertson in the management of the endowment scheme for the extension of the Church in our overgrown towns, and in our mining and manufacturing districts of the country, and to whose indefatigable exertions it is mainly owing that in the course of the last nine years no fewer than seventy-five additional parishes have been erected and endowed by voluntary contributions amounting to upwards of 264,000 GBP. It seemed to the Senatus no inappropriate tribute to his great public services, as well as to his personal excellencies and accomplishments, that the degree of Doctor of Divinity should be conferred upon him. (Applause)." Later in the ceremony, a Doctor of Laws degree was conferred on Matthew Arnold
(Source: Scotsman, April 22, 1869).

The second edition of William Smith's book entitled "Endowed Territorial Work: its Supreme Importance to the Church and Country" was published by Wm. Blackwood & Sons, and advertised by them in the Scotsman under the heading "Theological Works"
(Scotsman May 22, 1875).

In November 1876, three months before he died, William Smith altered his will. By that time, Rev. Dell had died, and William Smith wished also to recall the appointments of Dr. John Tulloch, John Black, and John Romanes. In their place, he appointed his wife, Anne Maxwell Black or Smith; Reverend John Robertson Liddell, Minister of Kirkliston; and James Arthur Crichton, Advocate Sheriff of Fifeshire. He added a provision directing the trustees to pay his widow the sum of 200 GBP for mourning, and to enable her to maintain herself and her family until the first payment of income. This codicil to his will was executed by William Smith in his home, the Manse of North Leith, witnessed by Reverend James Park, assistant Minister of North Leith and Richard Williams, church officer.
A further codicil contains a provision allowing the trust to be terminated in the event of the death of both his children. His widow was to get half the estate, and the other half was to be shared amongst his nephews Thomas Smith "now factor to Lord Falmouth, Truro"; Thomas Graham, Paisley; and Mr. William Brownlie, Motherwell (the son of William Smith's sister Margaret).

William Smith, DD (57), the Minister of North Leith Parish Church, died at the Manse. His wife, Anne Maxwell Black, was present at his death.

"THE LATE DR. WILLIAM SMITH, NORTH LEITH - General regret will be awakened by the announcement we have this morning to make of the death of the popular minister of North Leith. To look at Dr. Smith's stalwart frame, one might naturally have anticipated for him a long lease of life; but he has been cut off in the midst of a career of usefulness, long before reaching the span of three score and ten. Two years ago, we believe, he sustained a crushing bereavement in the sudden death of an only son, a youth of great promise, and since that event his friends have observed a certain failure of strength, which may very likely have been aggravated by the unremitting labour he continued to undergo in connection with Church business. In October last, after returning 3 from a few weeks' holiday on Speyside, he was prostrated by some internal ailment to such an extent that for some time his life was despaired of. From this attack he rallied so far as to be able to take daily drives when the weather was fine; but about a fortnight ago there came a relapse, under which he gradually sank bearing himself the while with remarkable fortitude and composure, till, shortly after seven o'clock yesterday morning, he peacefully breathed his last."

"The son of a farmer on the Carstairs estate in Lanarkshire, William Smith was born on 19th April 1819. He received his early education at the parish school, and subsequently at an academy near Lanark, under the charge of Dr. __thco. Being then sent to prosecute his studies at Edinburgh University, he there distinguished himself alike by ability and industry and in particular attracted the favourable notice of Professor Pillans, who predicted for him an honourable career. Through the Professor's influence he obtained the post of tutor in the family of Lord Minto, and thus, besides securing the life-long friendship of the late Dr. Aitken, of Minto, one of the most lettered and thoughtful of the older clergy of the Church of Scotland, he obtained the advantage of residence in London during a great part of three years, at a time when matters affecting the Church of Scotland were being debated in Parliament. He was still a student in the Divinity Hall at the time of the Disruption; and, we believe, his name stands first on the album at the head of the thirty whom that event left as the rising hope of the Church of Scotland. As a theological student he was the centre of a group of men most of whom afterwards made their mark in life. He was somewhat older and more advanced in experience and knowledge of the world than the others, and his happy genial nature, combined with the solidity and force of his judgment, gave him a corresponding influence over them. This happy circle long survived, and, while its integrity was unbroken, used to meet at periodical intervals to revive college memories and the old bonds of friendship. Most of them, alas! are now gone. Dr. Smith had a peculiar turn for this sort of fellowship which was probably quite unknown to the outside world, for later in life, and long after he had become a prominent minister, first at Lauder and then in Edinburgh, he was the main centre of another group, composed of clergy of the Church of Scotland, who might be supposed, and probably were supposed, by the world to have no dealings with one another. It was true that they differed widely, and the course of ecclesiastical politics had a tendency to separate some of them at last very far; but till within a recent period they were in the habit of meeting at least once a year, and the main attraction of the meeting was undoubtedly the genial personality of Dr. Smith, before which for the time all differences vanished. But to return, the popular student besides his connection with the Minto family, enjoyed similar social advantages while acting as tutor in those of Rothes and Rollo; and in this way his time was protfitably occupied till 1845, when he received a presentation to the parish of Lauder. In this charge the young minister remained for twelve years. While approving himself a zealous pastor, the friend and adviser of his humblest parishioners, he lived at the same time on a cordial footing with the Lauderdale family, at whose board he had opportunities of meeting many of the leading men of the day. Translated in 1857 to Trinity College Church, Edinburgh, Mr. Smith occupied that post till 1860, when he was appointed to the parish of North Leith. Here, again, he distinguished himself by the zeal and assiduity with which he applied himself to parochial duty. He had one of the largest communion-rolls in Scotland, as many as 2200 members sometimes partaking of the sacrament in his church; yet he strove to maintain constant intercourse with this large flock, not only going among them in cases of sickness or bereavement, but keeping up a system of regular visitation. He at the same time took a warm interst in many public matters connected with Leith; and the general estimation in which he was held was evinced by his being twice elected to the local School Board, on the last occasion at the top of the poll."

"From the time of his settlement in Edinburgh Mr. Smith began to take an active part in the business, not only of the local Church Courts, but of the General Assembly, in which he soon came to be regarded as a judicious counsellor. He took kindly to what is known as "Church work" although some of his friends used to grudge the extent to which his work absorbed his intellectural energies, and seemed to fit him less than he seemed to them to be fitted for the higher walks of his profession. To a great extent it was his admiration for Dr. James Robvertson, as the founder of the Endowment Scheme, which led him into this line, and induced him at length to take up the burden which Dr. Robertson laid down in the end of 1860. His labours in this prosperous cause for many years were incessant, and possibly he tasked his strength too much, although he never till recently wore the look of weakness or overwork. After working diligently for some eight years on the lines laid down by his predecessor, he in 1869 laid before the Assembly a scheme for endowing 100 additional churches, at an expenditure of 100,000 GBP. The money was readily forthcoming, a tenth part of it being subscribed by the late Mr. Baird of Cambusdoon; and with the additional assistance offered from the Baird Trust the work cut out for ten years was all but accomplished in half that period. Last year the indefatigable convener was able to report that the operations of the committee had resulted in the endowment of 240 churches, irrespective of 39 Parliamentary chapels erected into regular parochial charges; while he announced a renewal of subscriptions from Mr. Baird and other supporters of the scheme as warranting the committee in aiming at a hundred more. It was in recognition ofhis efforts in this cause, no less than of his merits as a parish minister, that Mr. Smith in 1869 received from his 4 Alma Mater the degree of Doctor of Divinity."

"Another important matter with which the name of this zealous Churchman will be associated is the passing of the recent Act for abolishing patronage. It was in April in 1866 that Mr. Cumming moved, in the Presbytery of Edinburgh, the overture which may be said to have originated the movement that led up to this piece of legislation. When the overture came before the Assembly, Dr. Smith made a vigorous speech in its support; and though Dr. Pirie's motion on that occasion for a committee to inquire into the subject was only carried by a majority of 5, in a house of 95 members, the agitation thus commenced was kept up year after year until, as the result of much deliberation and negotiation with Government, the Act now in operation was passed. Thoughout these proceedings Dr. Smith was the trusted counsellor of both ecclesiastical and political leaders; and when at length patronage was abolished, he had an important share in the work of framing the regulations under which the election to benefices is now conducted. One of the main grounds on which he originally advocated the change was the tendency he supposed it would have to heal existing divisions among Scottish Presbyterians; and it was in consonance with this view that he of late years warmly supported motions in the Assembly in which action pointing towards such union was shadowed forth. Nor in this connection should we omit to mention that he acted as one of the committee who have been making arrangements for a Pan-Presbyterian Council."

"Like other ministers who have shown aptitude for Church business, Dr. Smith was for several years returned out of rotation as a member of the Assembly; and so high a sense did the Supreme Court of the Church entertain of his judgment and capacity that about two years ago, on the demission by Dr. Pirie of the convenership of the Business Committee, he was unanimously recognised as the member best fitted to fill that important post. To his onerous Church work he added the duties of a director of the Society for Propagating Christian Knowledge; and he was also a member of Her Majesty's Bible Board, besides filling such honorary offices as the chaplaincies of the Mid-Lothian Coast Artillery Volunteers, and of the Edinburgh Upper Ward of Lanrkshire Association. Of one so immersed in active professional work, the fruits of the pen were not to be expected, though under other circumstances Dr. Smith's classical scholarship, his extensive acquaintance with theology and general literature, and his cultivated taste, might well have fitted him to excel in literary pursuits. As it is, the only publication with which, so far as we remember, his name has been associated is the volume containing the Baird Lectures delivered by him in 1875, and in which with characteristic ability he discussed the subject so near to his heart of "Endowed Territorial Work; its supreme Importance to the Church and Country.""

"As a preacher, Dr. Smith had an early career of great success, and those who remember his preaching in those years will recall its singularly inspiriting and powerful tone. He was a popular preacher in the best sense. His commanding presence, his ever earnest, and high-toned feeling, his copious - sometimes too copious - flow of language, his range of Scriptural knowledge - in this respect he belonged to the old school, and its seemed often as if he knew the Bible by heart - his solemnity and depth of spiritual experience all gave his pulpit utterance a very high character. And none probably thought more of it than those who heard it regularly and knew how it was all the natural outflow of his own mind and character. If it lacked range of thought, as well as of experience and Biblical knowledge, and was at times too slightly compacted and finished in its literary form, this was owing to the enormous practical labours of his later years, and the hurry and lack of thought, we fear, in which the convener of a Church Committee must spend his life."

"As an ecclesiastical politician, Dr. Smith belonged to the Liberal side of the Church, and, although some may be disposed to deny this, was upon the whole true to the deeper instincts of ecclesiastical liberty. He was much entangled, no doubt, especially of late years, in the actual toils of ecclesiastical statecraft, and these toils are never of an elevating - often they are of a seriously depressing and deteriorating - character. He never went so far astray as when, during the temporary pressure of a mistaken policy, he joined the cabal which contrived at last Assembly to throw out the overture for relaxation of the formula of subscription to the Confession now taken by Elders. When reproached with his action on this subject, he had nothing to say, but that he thought the proposed relaxation was not worth the trouble - in short, that it was not liberal enough! This was a part, however, he should not have acted - and especially as he may be supposed to have been not altogether unaware of the real motives which inspired the movements of the cabal, and led them to bring the old leader from Aberdeen once more to the front, in circumstances over which it is better to draw a decent veil. No good in the end can come of such movements inpsired from behind and this the day will by-and-by declare."

"No man's public conduct, however, is to be judged by a temporary aberration of his mind. Dr. Smith was trained as a Whig of the old school. He remained upon the whole true to the traditions of this school. He hated with all his heart the meaner arts of a pseudo-Conservative policy, of which probably he saw more than most men who were not actually partakers in that policy. He was possibly mistaken in his dreams of a reunion of the severed 5 sections of Scottish Presbyterianism; but at any rate he saw no future of the Church which would exclude even a wide latitude of opinion. Himself unmoved by the radical questions now stirring many minds - for he had a singularly simple, clear and strong faith - he had yet much sympathy with those whom he knew to be vexed by them. And nothing would have induced him to shut the door of the Church against freedom of thought, or to make narrower the room for freedom or expression than it now practically exists. He was glad that men of differing opinions should meet within the Chruch if they would only work for it. He had certainly no toleration for a latitude which meant escape from work, as well as the traditionalism of old views."

"Altogether Dr. Smith is a very pominent figure removed from the Church, whose absence may tell in many ways upon its future movements. All who gather around the grave, whatever they may think otherwise of him or his work, can have no thoughts but those of deep personal respect for one who always respected others, however he might differ from them, and whose amiability and generous ardour of character were combined with a life-long devotion to what he considered great Christian interests and the moral well-being of his country in whom it may be said the fire of a Christian patriotism consumed all lower feeling and interests."

"Dr. Smith was married in 1852 to a daughter of Mr. James Black, merchant, Glasgow, who, with two daughters, survives him. We are authorised to state that in consequence of numerous intimations of a desire to attend the funeral which have already been received, it has been resolved that all desirous of so doing shall meet in North Leith Parish Church on Saturday afternoon, at half-past two o'clock, and thence proceed to Warriston Cemetery"
(Scotsman, February 13, 1877.)1


     William Smith, son of Thomas Smith and Marion Lindsay, died on Monday, 12 February 1877, in The Manse, North Leith, Midlothian, Scotland,"Cause of Death: Tumour in Abdomen, uncertain jaundice. Informant - Anne Maxwell Smith, present at the Death", he was survived by his wife Ann Maxwell Smith.1

     He was buried in Warriston Cemetery, Edinburgh on Saturday, 31 March 1877.1 The total value of William's estate was £6089. This included the proceeds from 3 Life Insurance Policies taken out in 1845 - £499; 1846 - £500 & 1861 - £1500.
