Part 608s – Smith Robertson Genealogy – Indenture Research – 1800 James, Robert, and William Smith – Saint Patrick – Part 1 of 5

29 November 2011

Good Day,

As I just mentioned it is time once again for me to grab the proverbial “bull by the horns” and dive deep into my Transcription Project in the search for clues, hints, jots, notes which may open a door to the origins and genealogy of my great-great-great-grandfather James Smith.

This first Indenture, follows similarly along the lines of the Indenture introduced in Part 535s. From the Grenada Registers of Records, this Document is dated 5 February 1800. It includes three, possibly four Smiths: James, Robert, and maybe two Williams. And as I know that the forenames James and William are repeated names of descendants of ggg-grandfather James Smith it is almost an impossibility not to investigate opportunities.

I will be presenting this Document from the Grenada Registers of Records, preliminarily in five Parts. These Parts will include Pages 3 through 31. The annexed Schedules A and B will be my next task and will be transcribed. They include Pages 32 through and including 72.

In Part 535s I introduced a number of the persons included in this Document… and there are more. I will summarize all persons, by name when I complete the full Transcription.

From Item 3 of the microfilm FHL [1563378] here are the first six pages: 3 through 8.


And my transcription –
