CANON W. I. CARR SMITH.

DEATH ANNOUNCED.

A cable message from London yesterday announced the death of Canon William Isaac Carr Smith, who was well known in Sydney for a number of years as rector of St. James's

Church.

 

Canon Carr Smith came to Sydney in 1896, and succeeded Dr. Latimer Jackson as rector of St. James's Church, remaining here until 1909. He made an immediate impression, having a fine personality and presence. He developed the church life of the parish vigorously and along advanced lines, and was never without a large congregation. He also modernised the whole of the interior of the church. Canon Carr Smith filled the office of chaplain to Earl Beauchamp, then Gover- nor of New South Wales, from 1899 to 1900, and was chaplain to Sydney Hospital from 1899 to 1919. From 1897 to 1900 he was a fellow of St. Paul's College. He was a Com- missioner to New Guinea in 1910.

Returning to England, Canon Carr Smith   was appointed vicar of Grantham, Lincoln- shire, and held the position until 1917. During the period 1915-17 he was Commissioner to Tasmania. From 1917 until 1922 he was vicar of St. Peter's, Eastbourne, and was then appointed to a similar position at Forty Hill, Enfield, where he was stationed at the time of his death. He was appointed rural dean of Enfield In 1928.
