He was the nephew of John Stuart, a Chief Factor of the Hudson's Bay Co., and went to Canada in 1838. From that date to 1868 he was employed by the H.B. Co. on the coast of Labrador. He was married to Isabella Hardisty, the half-breed Cree daughter of Richard Hardisty, a Chief Trader of the H.B. Co. in 1853. Smith's rise to fame was spectacular, from Chief Factor to Governor of The Hudson's Bay Co., empire builder, President Canadian Pacific R.R., President Bank of Montreal, Canadian High Commissioner to Great Britain, philanthropist and one of the richest and most powerful men in Canada. Smith and his Cree Indian wife Isabella were raised to the peerage as Baron and Baroness Strathcona and Mount Royal in 1897.
