Part 281s – Smith Robertson Genealogy – Indenture Research – 1829 James, Archibald, & David Smith

22 May 2010

Afternoon,

Please bear with the construction of this my most recent Posting. Blogger has added a new fantastic Preview function, but and with all growing technological pains, what-you-see-is-not-necessarily-what-you-get. I am a novice when it comes to working with blog-skills and html code and languages. What may work at one hour and appears to look like, may be something completely different in the next. So please bear with me.

In my research of the ancestry and genealogical origins of my ggg-grandfather James Smith, as you know I am reviewing a number of Records, otherwise known as Indentures from the Grenada Register of Records. The Records that I am currently transcribing and reviewing are also found on the microfilm FHL [1563380]. The current Record is one hell of a lengthy document.

All-things-being-equal this Record does not provide any immediate suggestion of ggg-grandfather James Smith. However there may be some hint or indirect association. The three Smiths involved are possibly the James and Archibald Smith of James and Archibald Smith & Company. There is a calculated chance that these two may be the same James and Archibald indicated in the 3rd generation in my Smiths of Jordanhill, Scotland Descendant Chart. The third Smith, David, is a clerk of the same Company.

On page 191 of the Record there is a mention of the location “Good Hope”. This is more than likely, and it is possible that this is the same location as purchased by ggg-grandfather James Smith in about 1828. See Part 266s and Part 267s. Also see ggg-grandfather James’ Last Will and Testament in Part 61s.

On page 202 there is a statement that most definitely confuses me, and as I have stated I do not profess to have any legal education, and it reads “in respect of the residue of a certain term of one thousand years aʃsigned by a certain Indenture bearing the date the sixth day of August one thousand eight hundred and nineteen…” Does this mean that there is something more about the year 2819? I haven’t got a clue. Where is Jules Verne when you need him?

Beginning with page 188 this Record continues through to and includes page 217, which is the body of the Record including Schedules. And when I chanced upon the Schedules my first reaction was “Oh no!”… I was pleasantly surprised when I noticed that the Schedules all-in-all appear to be repeats of the same Schedules in Part 280s. From a research and genealogical perspective this is good news. I am able to cross-reference the names in the Schedules from one Record to the next especially at those points where the names and information may be illegible on one Schedule due to deterioration and “smudging” of the Record and image.

Here are the pages –


And my transcription –
