Who is John Smith?

John Smith or Smyth was bishop of Llandaff from 1476 to 1479.

He had previously held positions as vicar of Tenby, and archdeacon of St David's. These posts are known from an inscription on the Tenby chancel wainscotting presumably erected on Smith's initiative and personally examined by Edward Yardley. He was buried in the church of the Grey Friars in London.

He supplied William Worcestre with a list of Welsh saints included in Worcestre's 1478 Journeys.
