Part 280s – Smith Robertson Genealogy – Indenture Research – 1829 James & Archibald Smith

16 May 2010

Morning,

As I mentioned earlier these Documents appear to be getting longer and longer, but they are a must in my committed search for the genealogy and ancestral origins of my ggg-grandfather James Smith.

This Record dated 4 February 1829, extracted from the Grenada Registers of Records, does not appear to immediately have anything to do with ggg-grandfather James. The Smiths included in the Document and involved in the transactions appear be of the Smith family as I previously identified as the Jordanhill Smiths. See Part 223s and Part 210s to name a few. Also I have constructed a Smith Family Tree and Descendant Chart which can be reviewed in my genealogy Analysis under the title of Smiths of Jordanhill.

This Record from the microfilm FHL [1563380] appears to involve certain Estates existing on the Island of Grenada. These Estates include: Mount Hardman; Grande Ance; Morne Delice; Mount Moritz; and Diamond. (Please be aware that there may be some discrepancy in spellings as comparison to the current day titles and labels.) The Schedules are dated in the years 1825, 1826, and 1827.

Another point of note is the name of the Company or Bank involved in the transaction, the British Linen Company. Check out the link at Wikipedia.

Here are the images of the pages 174 through and including 188.


As to my transcription, I have attempted to present the information in tabular format. All-things-being-equal this should assist in the reading. If you come across any error of formatting please do not hesitate to contact me.
