Part 188s – Smith Robertson Genealogy – Indenture Research – 1805 George Smith

26 January 2010

Evening,

And at times there are two Records that appear in the Grenada Register of Records that are connected. This is the case of the next two documents both entered 30 April 1807. The documents are, from what I can read, dated 14 April 1805, 15 April 1805, and 12 April 1807.

My source is the microfilm FHL [1563328] and Item 5, of the Register of Records 1797-1817 (v. G2-R2).

The Smith in these documents is one George Smith, Esquire, and Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Judicative for the Island of Grenada at the dates on record in 1805 and 1807. As far as I can read, and transcribe I do not see any explicit clue that would connect George Smith to ggg-grandfather James Smith.

The documents of pages 268, 269 and 270 follow:
