Part 301s – Smith Robertson Genealogy – Indenture Research – 1830 James & Archibald Smith

22 June 2010


The next Record in my Indenture Research project in the search for the origins of my ggg-grandfather James Smith of Grenada is one such Record made 9 September 1829. It was entered the 19 April 1830 to the Grenada Registers of Records, and subsequently “Examined”.

I believe the gentlemen involved, James and Archibald Smith, are of the Jordanhill Smiths of Scotland. They are conducting a property transaction with one Henry Wharton Waddilove of Grenada. Is there any clue as to the origins or ancestry of ggg-grandfather James Smith? I cannot be sure, but I think not.

The Document includes pages 620 through and including 622 from the Grenada Registers of Records. The images were downloaded from Item 4 of the microfilm FHL [1563380]

The following are the images.

And my transcription of the Record.
