Hi

I started the thread and from time to time info's and questions "roll in". What information are you looking for? And from what Sinnett-Smith family line do you descend.

My mother was a Sinnett-Smith and from what I know, there's not very many of us around ... The lines with questions are the following:

William Sinnett-Smith (approx. 1895-1946) m. B. Klinger
Arthur Sinnett-Smith (- 1959) m. two times, 1. wife (unknown Italian), daughter was Ethel born around 1920
2nd wife was Elizabeth Veneziano, married   /divorced 1950s (no children), third partner Martha (son born out of wedlock, last name is the mother's surname).

The S.-Smiths were a very secretive family, so it would be interesting if you could enlighten us on some points.

Mildura

PS It is now proven, that the family came from England via Naples. The Sheffield connection via a female line (Harriette S-Smith, ne Oakes is also proven)

Im just looking for some background information really and how Sinnett - Smith came to be, I see that you said Sinnett got added to Smith and stuff. My grandfather was Percy Sinnett - Smith who lived in Egypt quite some time ago with his wife who was french, they moved to England though after the rising tensions in Egypt.

I myself am William Sinnett - Smith, but not the one you are talking about. I was born in England but we moved to the United States, I am the last one within my family that we know of to carry on the last name as I only have sisters and my dads brother only has girls.

Hello, than your great-great-grandfather must have been James, who had a son, Percy, and two daughters Dolly and Daisy!

Hi Mildura,
My user name is Cubie and l am replying to a post of yours asking for some assistance to find your Sinnett Smith cousin.
I grow up with your cousins James(Jimmy) and Patrick who are the sons of your Uncle Percy who had two sisters Dolly and Daisy. I remember your grandmother , who we referred to as Nini, your grandfather must have passed away before Jimmy was born.
I left England with my family in 1968 and went to Australia and since then l have lost contact with the Sinnett Smiths.
I have met one of those sisters with her two boys ( l thought one was Cyril but l was only 9 or 10 at the time.).it was at 133 Springrove rd Hounslow.
My parents knew Uncle Percy from Egypt and when he and his wife came to England the two couples lived in the same apartment buildings in London.
Percy's first born son was James, 1954 27 November and l was born to Harry and Elsa Davy 1954 25November .so friends from birth.
Your cousin Patrick born 1956 London.
I do know for a fact that both your cousins became scientists and quite well renouned. James Sinnett Smith is affiliated with the University of California is married with two daughters.
Patrick Sinnett Smith was with Manchester University and last l heard he was in New York City, 42nd St.
I can ask my brother Trevor( was Patrick's best friend ), for the full address if you need it.
I have more memories to share about these lovely cousins of yours and l hope you receive this message as l am new to this site and do not know how to navigate it yet.
Regards
Cubie.

Hello, I know this is an old thread but I'm hoping some of the people who've posted are still around and happy to communicate! I am a complete beginner with all this, but I believe that Percy Alfred Sinnett-Smith was my great-great-grandfather. I would love to find out more about him and his family. Please let me know if you are happy to chat!

Jo
