Kirkcaldy  was at that
time the very important 
port in Scotland.
Smith's father was there the
comptroller of customs;
something similar to the
job Adam reached
at the end of his life.
However, his father died
before Smith was born, and
because he was the only
child in the family he lived
alone with his mother.
Apparently this suited him
well and because he never
married he continued to
live with his mother  until
her death.
When he was 4 years old,
he was kidnapped by gypsies,
but when they noticed that
they were pursued, they left
him by the roadside.
