Part 641s – Smith Robertson Genealogy – 1802 Gavin Smith – St. George, Grenada – Easy Paella

16 February 2012

Good Day,

Just diverting a wee bit from my obsession of genealogy and the search and research for the origins and ancestry of my ggg-grandfather James Smith
I decided to enable another one of my obsessions, cooking.

Last night’s supper was an experiment, (and that is not necessarily something different in this house)… I decided I had a hankering for some Paella. And do you think I had the time to make a true-blue Paella? Hell, no! I only decided this at about 3:00 pm and we were slated to eat about 6ish.

With two pans; my Paella pan and a frying pan on the stove top I placed onion, garlic, and chili pepper in olive oil in the Paella pan. Five minutes later I added some saffron threads, chopped parsley and chicken broth. Brought to a boil, then simmered for 20 minutes.

In the frying pan, in some oil, I threw in some chopped-up chicken breast, which had marinated in olive oil, paprika, oregano, salt and pepper for about 30 minutes or so. Five minutes later, I added chopped green and red bell peppers, and of course some chorizo. Attempting to correspond with the rice time countdown, I then added in some shrimp. Rice on plate topped with chicken, chorizo and shrimp proved a very delectable, simple, quick and easy Paella. Dang was it good!

Back to my search and research.

The next Document is a follow-up Contract to Part 640s between Gavin Smith, the Surveyor of Grenada and Patrick Kewley and his sister-in-law, Elizabeth. Make sure to take note that the surname "Kewley" is spelled two different ways throughout this Indenture - Kewley versus Kewly.

Here are the images of the Pages 182 through and including 184 from the Grenada Registers of Records. I downloaded them from Item 4 of the microfilm FHL [1563378].


And my transcription.
