Part 292s – Smith Robertson Genealogy – Indenture Research – 1829 James Smith, The Carpenter

09 June 2010

Afternoon,

As mentioned in my preceding Post, the Transcription Project continues. This is my search for the genealogy, ancestry, and family tree of my ggg-grandfather James Smith.

This next Record dated 21 October 1829 and examined and entered to the Grenada Registers of Records 29 December 1829 reflects a property business transaction of one James Smith of the Island of Grenada and identified as a Carpenter. All-things-being-equal this may be ggg-grandfather James. The other mentioned executors of the transaction are the couple James and Margaret Bain, who, at this time seem to be now resident in Bristol, in England.

This Record is noted and titled with the letter B. Cross-referencing my previous work and matching the concerned parties as well as the identified lot and parcel of land, it appears that this Document may be an addendum to the Record that I transcribed in Part 269s.

Unless I am missing something there does not appear to be any additional clues to the ancestry and origins of this James Smith.

The downloaded images include Pages 388 through and including 391. All are downloaded from Item 4 of the microfilm FHL [1563380].
