Part 283s – Smith Robertson Genealogy – Indenture Research – 1829 James & David Smith

24 May 2010

Evening,

Well the garden is working sort of… Two dozen cherry tomatoes, a pint of green beans, one summer squash, five white eggplants, two purple ones, and a bunch of those mother-long asparagus beans. And tonight’s menu included crispy-fried Ramen-type noodles with ground pork, onion, peppers, and stir-fried Chinese broccoli. Who’d have thought that fish, soya and sriracha sauces would be the regular fare.

My next work of transcription in the search and research for the origins of my ggg-grandfather James Smith was entered to the Grenada Registers of Records on 21 December 1829. The two Smiths, one James and the other David, may have some connection of relative link to ggg-grandfather James but there is no definitive indication, hint or clue in this Record.

The surnames of persons, apart from Smith included in this Record are Green, McVitie, Graham, Wilson, Rae, McNairn, Copland, Johnstone, Perry, Irving, Tucker, and Bell. One discovery I made was that the person who appears to be the focused party, Sir George Cornwall was not originally a Cornwall until he took his wife’s family name. His original surname may have been Amyand.

Here are the pages 292 to and including 296 of microfilm FHL [1563380].
