Louisa Smith (married name Southwell) was born in 1844 in Ramsay, Huntingdonshire, England, the daughter of Mary Kilby and Edward Smith.[1]

She married John Southwell in 1867 at Parkwood, New South Wales, Australia.[1] Their children were:[1]

  • Albert Southwell (1868–?)
  • Eva Annie Southwell (1869–?)
  • Amelia Alma Southwell (1871–?)
  • William Shelton Southwell (1873–?)
  • Raymond Southwell (1875–1942)
  • Sidney Rowland Southwell (1880–?)
  • Edward John Thomas Southwell (1882–?)

In 1906, Louisa was reading in the kitchen by candle light at her home, "Ottocliffe" in Hall, New South Wales, when a fire broke out at the house. Louise lost many of her belongings, including her watch and jewelry and all her clothes but those on her back.[2]

Louisa died in 1926 at her home on Denison Street, Junee, New South Wales, aged 82 years.[1][3]
