James Smith 5th of Craigend

???? - 1836


Son of John Smith of Craigend (q.v.). His death-date is given as 1838 in most genealogical sources but as 1836 in court reports of litigation surrounding Carrick Brown, a banking partnership under the Glasgow Ship Bank. There is some uncertainty as to whether either of the 'James Smith' and 'James Smith jun.' shown as partners of Leitch & Smith in 1818 and 1824 was this man.
