John, Susanna and his surviving children then emigrated to New South Wales leaving Gravesend on 20 Oct 1838 on the Juliana. The ship was wrecked off Greens Point, Table Bay, Cape of Good Hope on 19 Jan 1839. They later proceeded to NSW on the Morayshire arriving at Sydney on 20 Apr 1839. Fifty migrants remained in South Africia.

Two children died on the way to Australia. Edward, a twin brother of John and the baby George James. John and Susanna had a further five children in NSW. The first and last two had their births registered at Sydney and their 3rd childs birth was registered at Maitland.

John was a dyer, scourer, calico glazer and hot presser of 203 Castlereagh Street, Sydney in the mid 1840's.

Susanna died on 9 Jul 1885 and was buried on 11 Jul 1885 at Camperdown Cemetery.

William Charles Smith, a grandson of John, married Catherine Mary Kingsford and the last of their seven children was Charles Edward Kingsford-Smith. He was the pilot of the Southern Cross, the first aeroplane to cross the Pacific Ocean from America to Australia, arriving at Brisbane on 9 Jun 1928.
