Part 507s – Smith Robertson Genealogy – Indenture Research – 1824 James Smith

16 May 2011

Good Afternoon,

The Transcription Project continues, and this morning I have progressed into Item 12 of the Grenada Registers of Records of the microfilm FHL [1563379].

This next Indenture is all-things-being-equal pertinent to ggg-grandfather James Smith. This appears to be a sale/lease of property made in 1811 between Louis Rouget and Victor La Barrie to James Smith and John Devereaux Lumsden. The name James Smith fits. The Island – Grenada fits. And the occupation – Carpenter(s) fit. Further the contract appears specific to property once again in the Town of Saint George. The initial contract price 10 shillings. The one Year Lease – One Pepper Corn.
