Part 297s – Smith Robertson Genealogy – Indenture Research – 1830 James, James Jr., & Archibald Smith

15 June 2010

Morning,

The next Record of the Grenada Registers of Records and images downloaded from Item 4 of the microfilm FHL [1563380] includes Pages 614 through 616. The details are that which now bring land surveying techniques into play.

(Image: Table of Surveying from the 1728 Cyclopedia, Volume 2)

The lot and parcel of land referred, all-things-being-equal and I am not a cartographer nor a cadastral expert, may be one adjacent or near to the lots purchased and/or leased by ggg-grandfather James Smith. The references to James Smith and James Smith, Junior are of the order of the Jordanhill Smiths. Other than that there are no indicative hints or clues as to the genealogy, origin, ancestry, nor family tree of ggg-grandfather James.

The images of Pages 614 through 616 include:
