Part 518sb – Smith Robertson Genealogy – Indenture Research - 1798 Robert Smith – First Names – Carriacou – 3/4

01 June 2011

Good Evening,

The first five months of 2011 are over. June, and our Hurricane Season, begins today. And last night I watched a TV show explaining that I should get my bags packed for the day after my birthday on 21 December 2012. Andy Warhol’s 90+ year old aunt said that, and I’m paraphrasing, “It must be nice over there, cause no one’s ever come back.” And I wonder if I will find out of my ggg-grandfather James Smith’s origins by then. All we have to do before then is to decipher the symbols on the Cross of Hendaye.

Continuing on from Part 517sb here are the next seven pages of the 1798 Indenture, Part 3/4. There’s still no hint of the genealogy or ancestry of ggg-grandfather James Smith. And as I mentioned I do not know if there is a family connection to James Gordon Brebner.

As I previously wrote, this is a long Indenture and I have decided to post my transcription work to four postings; 1/4; 2/4; 3/4; and 4/4. The Document Pages include Pages 376 through and including 402. They are downloaded from the Grenada Registers of Records 1799-1811 (v. M4-W4) from the microfilm FHL [1563378].

Here are images of Pages 390 through and including 396.


And my transcription, with the lists of first names of persons entered as property and slaves –
