( I did notice that William/maria's second child has mmn = "Stain" at birth and mmn="Littlejohn" at death ... )

Thank you for all your help.

Since last post I've received additional information which has added a third William Smith to the chaos. The difference this time is a dna match to this particular Smith and not family folk lore.

To add to the story this Smith was born in the UK to Swedish parents, this journey of discovery now takes me to outback Western Australia. 

So to all thank you as I now pursue this lead.

Apologies if I have wasted your time but thank you for the positive assistance.

Iím wondering if u have the correct William Smith?
Iíve been down that road before with all those refs u have found and they ended up not the correct person! If there is a connection with  this Smith line u would of obtained Williams marriage cert? Where info give comes directly from William, he states he was born in Sweden not Australia, and states his Parents names....

Would be good to hear your thoughts on this.
