Part 87s – Smith Records – 1812 GG-Grandaunt Eley Smith

22 October 2009

Early Morning,

I discovered a Baptism entry in my search through the Anglican Parish Register of St George, Grenada. The entry was found on the microfilm FHL[1523656] depicting the Anglican Church Parish Records, 1784-1971.

Based on the details provided in the first entry on the page, this would have been great-great-grandaunt Eley Smith. She was born on the 17th of March 1812 to ggg-grandparents James Smith and Mary Ann Doret. The entry was entered by Francis McMahon and she was baptised on the 10th of June 1814 when she was two years old.

My transcription...

looking through the bleeding of the ink on the page and from the back page, I read –
A.D. 1814


Eley Daughter of James Smith and of Mary Ann Doret born the 17th day of March 1812 was baptised the 10th day of June 1814.

James Gordon

Francis McMahon
From the records found to date, gg-grandaunt Eley Smith was the eldest of the seven children of gg-grandparents James Smith and Mary Ann Doret. (Please check the James Smith Descendant Chart found in the left-hand green column.)

One question that may arise is: Did gg-grandaunt Eley Smith’s name appear on ggg-grandfather James Smith’s last will and Testament? I cannot match anyone of the names included on the 1843 copy of the will to her name. See Part 61s.

The search continues.
