Biography
  • Thomas Elder (1818-1897) emigrated to South Australia from Scotland in 1854 and joined his brother George Elder (1816-1897) in managing a business founded by their brother Alexander Lang Elder (1815-1885) in 1840. George returned to Scotland in 1855 and Thomas found new partners that included Robert Barr Smith (1824-1915), who had emigrated to Victoria from Scotland in 1854. Their business expanded into mining and pastoral activities and underwent several reorganisations before becoming Elder Smith and Co Ltd in 1888. Smith married Thomas's sister Joanna (1835-1919) in 1856 and their son Thomas Elder Barr Smith (1863-1941) became Company Chairman in 1921.
