Part 444s – Smith Robertson Genealogy – Indenture Research – 1822 – Richard Oliver and William Smith

26 January 2011


In the due course of my search and research, I'm certainly learning of the genealogy and inter-connections of the other Smiths who may have been involved in the history of the Island of Grenada. At times it seems like a momentous task to check out every Smith-related document and indenture in the search for the origins of my ggg-grandfather James Smith. This next Indenture, sorry to say, does not have any immediate relation to ggg-grandfather James.

(Lincoln's Inn, by Thomas Shepherd, 1830, from Wikimedia Commons)

This Indenture does however include Richard Oliver Smith and his deceased father William Smith. It also, from my understanding and research, includes the possible name of Richard Oliver Smith’s existent, or to be father-in-law Edmund Broderip the Younger. (See my Richard Oliver Descendant Chart.)

This next Indenture, pages 345 and 346, from the Grenada Registers of Records, appears to be a prelude contract to a further and continued transaction document. I will be following up with the subsequent Contract.

Here are the downloaded images of the two pages as acquired from Item 7 of the microfilm FHL [1563379].

And my transcription –
