- Born: Cir 1820, Not Known
- Marriage: BALDCOCK, Elizabeth Grant on 27 Nov 1845 in Holy Trinity Church, Adelaide, SA
- Died: 31 Dec 1902, Semaphore, South Australia at age 82
Other than Mark's marriage to Elizabeth Smith in 1845 I have found no official records of either of them. Neither were parents recorded at their marriage. The marriage was performed in November 1845 making them a pioneer couple (arriving in the colony before Dec 1845).
The couple resided at Gawler town in 1846 and were still there in 1855.
On the marriage certificate of Mark's daughter, Sarah Ann in 1863, at Sandhurst (Bendigo) his occupation is stated as "cabinet maker".

"SMITH Mark (M) 87y of Semaphore d 31 Dec 1902 at Semaphore rel (not recorded) dist PtA b291 p308".
Mark married Elizabeth Grant BALDCOCK, daughter of John BALDOCK and Sabina BEE, on 27 Nov 1845 in Holy Trinity Church, Adelaide, SA. (Elizabeth Grant BALDCOCK was born on 23 Jun 1822 in Authorpe, Lincoln, England and died on 7 Jul 1881 in Crystal Brook, South Australia.)

"SMITH Mark FLy S (f Not recorded) m 27 Nov 1845 BALLDOCK Elizabeth Mly S (not recorded) at Holy Trinity Church, Adelaide dist Ade b1 p191".
Note: "Mly" is most likely a mistake in the transcript and it should read FLy - Full Years (of age to marry).
The marriage certificate reads "minor" for Elizabeth's age and the witnesses were James Balldock (his mark) and James List.
Elizabeth was born in 1822 making her 23 years old at the time of her marriage so this record is quite odd.
