He married Frances Finch of Clonmacken, county Limerick and they had a large family. At the end of the 19th century their eldest son Captain Richard Fitzherbert Smith lived at Clydaville for a time. Richard Smith was killed by a horse at a fair in 1877. In the 1870s he is recorded as owning 890 acres in county Cork. It is not established if he was related to the J. Smith who was living at Blossomfort in 1837.
