Mr. James Fyfe Smith was born April 1, 1869. His wife, nee Mary Gertrude Banamy was born August 24, 1873. The Fyfe Smiths immigrated to Canada from Australia in 1904. James Fyfe Smith became an importer of hardwood and set up his company, J. Fyfe Smith Co. Ltd. in Vancouver. The family traveled extensively between 1900-1932 to Japan, Australia, Hong Kong and the Philippines.
