Part 126s – Smith Robertson Genealogy – Bilney, Nassau – G-Grandmother Ella’s Birth Place

21 November 2009


I implied a question in Part 121s regarding the birth location of great-grandmother Ella Margaret Louise (née Scott) Smith. The text on the Birth Announcement from September 12, 1857 publication of the Nassau Guardian is somewhat a bit difficult to transcribe. With Toni’s, Dave’s and Ray’s assistance, we can say that, all-things-being-equal; the birth location is “Bilney.”

I discovered the approximate location in a search from a book “Bahamas For Dummies”, 4th Edition, published by Wiley Publishing, Inc., 2007.

The red marker on the inserted Google map below, is the location of the area known as Bilney. It’s amazing how I’m learning how the histories of my ancestors cross with my short past. One never knows from what resources this whole genealogy trip will take them.

I’m now curious as to with which Anglican church in Nassau, great-grandmother Ella’s father, my gg-grandfather Alexander Scott was associated.
