Part 313s – Smith Robertson Genealogy – 1832 James & Archibald Smith - 18 Names

09 July 2010

Evening,

No rain today and we seem to be drying up. Beautiful day, but not so for Oklahoma. And how apropos? Today is National Sugar Cookie Day.


My Transcription Project and the search for the ancestry and genealogy of my great-great-great-grandfather James Smith continues… and continues.

This next Document is recorded 2 April 1832 and entered to the Grenada Registers of Records 1 August 1832. And it is a long one. It involves land and property and the production of sugar specifically to, I believe two estates in the Parish of Saint Patrick; Union and Marli Estates. (See the inserted images from the Gavin Smith’s 1882 publication August, 1824 Reference To The Plan of The Island of Grenada.)

Shy of the immediate involvement of the Merchants James and Archibald Smith of Glasgow, there does not appear to be any connection or inter-action with ggg-grandfather James Smith.

There are 18 unique names that I have been able to transcribe included in this Record. The names are: George Paterson; John Ryburn; Andrew Ranken; Andrew Rankin; James Smith; Archibald Smith; Robert McCunn; William Stuart; Helen Stuart, his wife; Augustus Robert Hankey; William Alers Hankey; Robert Hankey; John Hankey; Glozier; Snell; Robert Kirk; James Macadam; and John Sanderson.

The 10 images of Pages 261 through and including 270 are downloaded from Item 6 of the microfilm FHL [1563380]. Here are the images.
