John was born in the summer of 1837 at Presteigne, Radnorshire, to parents Thomas Smith, who worked the land (1841), and Mary Mills.
The 1851 census return records John as servant to Rev. Joseph Hutchings.
I have not been able to identify John in records after the 1851 census. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
