Part 328s – Smith Robertson Genealogy – Indenture Research – 1833 James and Archibald Smith, Again Once More

07 August 2010

Afternoon,

Just had a late morning thunderstorm. The humidity has increased. Temperature just dropped to 85˚F (29˚C) and the Heat Index to 93˚F (34˚C). Just found out that the Heat Index is measured in the shade. Earlier this week it was well over 100 degrees, Fahrenheit.

I’ve sort of been struggling with the Record that I’ve been transcribing this week in the continued search for the genealogy and ancestral origins of my ggg-grandfather James Smith. The next document from the Grenada Registers of Records exhibits extremely small and compacted writing, plus the ink has sort of smudged and blurred over since 1833.

The above-entered image is a clip, highlighting the location of the Union Estate, taken from the Map Of The Island of Grenada made by Gavin Smith in 1801.

The name Smith is repeated 60 times in this Record and the compounded name James Smith is repeated, at least 31 times. Not one of them refers to ggg-grandfather James.

The images, Pages 327 through and including 332, are downloaded from Item 6 of the microfilm FHL [1563380]. I believe that this Record is another Indenture of the former works in Part 325s and Part 326s.

Here are the images.


The lines of my transcription may not to wrap correctly on your monitor. I have placed a "hard-return" at the end of each line which should correspond to each complete line in the actual Documents. Here is my transcription.
