Part 107s – Smith Genealogy – 1840 Marriage GGGrandfather James Smith and GGGrandmother Cecilia Jane Thomas

10 November 2009


In the search for documentation I have been able to find reams of electronic paper, albeit images, of those that provide me with some basic insights into the lives of my ancestors. In a continuation, this morning’s offering is the Marriage Entry to the Register of the Anglican Church of the Parish of Saint George in Grenada. This is the recording of the marriage between my great-great-grandfather James Smith, the Younger and my great-great-grandmother Cecilia Jane Thomas.

Sources: Parish of St. George, Anglican Church, Grenada 
and Family History Library

Both gg-grandfather James and gg-grandmother Cecilia were of the Parish of Saint George, Grenada. It is recorded that their marriage took place on the 6th of June 1840 at the residence of a Mr. Robert. The source the entry of this record to the Parish Register is microfilm FHL[1523656], Item 7, Parish Registers, 1784-1971, Anglican Church, Parish of St. George (Grenada).

My transcription is as follows –

Marriages Solemnized in the Parish of Saint George in the Island of Grenada in the Year of Our Lord 1840.

No. 93

James Smith the Younger of the Parish of Saint George, Esquire Bachelor, Master Carpenter, and Cecilia Jane Thomas of the same place, Spinster were married by Licence at the residence of Mr. Robert, in the Parish of Saint George and Island of Grenada aforesaid this 6th day of June in the Year of Our Lord 1840 by me. J.C. Barker, Rector.

This Marriage was } J. Smith Jr.
Solemnized between us} Cecilia J. Thomas

In the Presence of --- James McDonell, W__ Thomas
The 6th of June 1840 was a Saturday, and at present I am not aware of the actual location, shy of the Parish of Saint George in Grenada, of Mr. Robert’s residence.

Note a number of the written facts of gg-grandfather James Smith: the year, “1840”; the appellation of “the Younger”; his condition of “Bachelor”; and his occupation, “Master Carpenter”. Is this the same James Smith, Jr. father of the 12-day old Mary mentioned in Part 105s?

And another question, is the witness W___ Thomas in some way related to gg-grandmother Cecilia Jane (née Thomas) Smith?
