William Mein Smith1

#13042, b. 7 September 1799, d. 3 January 1869
Last Edited=14 May 2015
     William Mein Smith was born on 7 September 1799 in Cape Town, South Africa.1 He was the son of William Proctor Smith and Mary Mein.1 Both Peter and William were in the Royal Artillary, while they were stationed in Canada when Louisa and William married.1 He married Louise Basgrave Wallace, daughter of Peter Margetson Wallace and Louisa Turmaine, on 12 March 1828 in Canada.1 William died on 3 January 1869 in Woodside, Greytown, New Zealand, aged 69.1 In an extract from The New Zealand Encyclopaedia: William Mein Smith was born at Cape Town in 1798 the son of a civilian officer of the Admiralty. Like so many more of those who figured prominently in the early days of New Zealand colonisation, his origins were military. He entered the British Army as a cadet in 1813 and in the course of service in Canada, Gibraltar and Woolwich Academy, rose to the rank of Captain. While in Canada, he married the daughter of General Basgrave Wallace. As a captain he also held a professional post in the plan drawing Department of the Woolwich Royal Military Academy, and it was at that capacity that he became Surveyor General to the New Zealand Company (Q.V.) in 1839. He sailed from London with three other surveyors in the "Cuba" and arrived at Port Nicholson (q.v.) in 1840 (January).

He chose Thorndon as the site of a city when his proposal in favour of Petone (Brittania) was rejected following a Hutt Valley flood. He was also a member of the committee set up for the maintenance of law and order in April 1840, and was gazetted a Magistrate in 1841. He still had his military affiliations, but in 1842 he retired from the army and sold his commission.

Smith's surveying activities covered a large part of New Zealand. He began with land selection in the Wanganui area and spent a lot of time in the Wairarapa. In Sept 1842 he was commissioned by Colonel Wakefield (qv) to survey South Island harbours along the East Coast, a task which took him 3/12. Unfortunately much of the valuable data he compiled was lost when his cutter "The Brothers" foundered in a squall at Akaroa.

He took part in hostilities with the Maoris in 1845 as a Captain of the Thornton Militia, but in 1847 he forsook public affairs and with Sam Revan (qv) a former newspaper partner of Henry Sam Chapman (qv) in Canada, took over Huangaroa Station in the Wairarapa. This comprised 22,000 acres freehold and 30,000 acres leasehold. While Smith was associated with this venture it did well, but after his death in 1869 Revans found it a costly business.

Smith found time as a pastoralist to serve in the legislative Council in 1851 and in 1858 he was elected to represent the Wairarapa in the Wellington Provincial Council, a post which he held until his retirement in 1865. Smith was a scholarly turn of mind. He was a man of simple tastes, quiet and unobtrusive in manner and keenly interested in Mathematics, Art, and Natural Science. As such he was regarded at the time a strange partner for the fiery, dogmatic and frequently unscrupulous Sam Revans, but his influence on Revans must have been strong because the Huanguroa Station enterprise flourished as long as Smith was associated with it. The facility with pencil and brush that had secured Smith the Professorship of plan drawing at Woolwich stood him in good stead throughout his years in New Zealand. In his sketches and water colours, he captured much of the contemporary scene and these charming, if unpretentious studies are now recognised as having great historical value. His years in the region of Martinborough, where Huangaroa Station was located, produced some most interesting water colours, examples of which were displayed by the Alex. Turnbull Library, Wellington as recently as 1961. His work also included some sketches of the Wellington area of the early days and a number of varied studies of the western coastline from Porirua to Otaki and in the vicinity of the mouth of the Manawatu River.
Mein Smith died at Greytown on January 3rd 1869.

It is a matter of historical regret that sketches which were made in the course of a three month survey of the east coast of the South Island in late 1842 were lost when his cutter, "The Brothers", foundered in a squall at Akaroa.1
