30 November 2011

Good Day,

And now the next section of the Indenture entered to the Grenada Registers of Records on 2 April 1801.

I am sifting through this first part(s) of the Document to see if any of the Smith may or may not be connected to in any way to ggg-grandfather James Smith. As I mentioned in Part 610s there are 43 occurrences of the surname Smith in these five pages of the Document.

Good day,

And here is the 3rd Part of my current Transcription work; Pages 15 through and including 20. Parts 1 and 2 are my Postings 608s and 609s.

This is part of my research and search for the origins of my ggg-grandfather James Smith. The Document is from the Grenada Registers of Records and all-things-being-equal I hope to find some lead that will answer the questions of my ancestry and origins. There are 43 occurrences of the surname Smith in this Document and Indenture.

From Item 3 of the microfilm FHL [1563378] here are the images.

Part 609s – Smith Robertson Genealogy – Indenture Research – 1800 James, Robert, and William Smith – Saint Patrick – Part 2 of 5

Good Day,

The detail included in this 1800 Document from the Grenada Registers of Records is amazing.

In the search for the origins and genealogy of my ggg-grandfather James Smith I am amazed at the far distances of the globe that the combination of persons in one Indenture can represent. Locations Included in this one Indenture are:
  • Britain
  • France
  • Ireland
  • Cavendish Square, County of Middlesex
  • Wadworth, County of York
  • City of London
  • Leytonstone, County of Essex
  • Camberwell, County of Surrey
  • Maxton near Dover, County of Kent
  • Parishes of St. Andrew and St. Patrick, Island of Grenada
  • Wolfinbüttel, Duchy of Brunswick, Lower Saxony

From Item 3 of the microfilm FHL [1563378] here are the next set of six pages: 9 through 14.

Part 608s – Smith Robertson Genealogy – Indenture Research – 1800 James, Robert, and William Smith – Saint Patrick – Part 1 of 5

Good Day,

As I just mentioned it is time once again for me to grab the proverbial “bull by the horns” and dive deep into my Transcription Project in the search for clues, hints, jots, notes which may open a door to the origins and genealogy of my great-great-great-grandfather James Smith.

This first Indenture, follows similarly along the lines of the Indenture introduced in Part 535s. From the Grenada Registers of Records, this Document is dated 5 February 1800. It includes three, possibly four Smiths: James, Robert, and maybe two Williams. And as I know that the forenames James and William are repeated names of descendants of ggg-grandfather James Smith it is almost an impossibility not to investigate opportunities.

I will be presenting this Document from the Grenada Registers of Records, preliminarily in five Parts. These Parts will include Pages 3 through 31. The annexed Schedules A and B will be my next task and will be transcribed. They include Pages 32 through and including 72.

In Part 535s I introduced a number of the persons included in this Document… and there are more. I will summarize all persons, by name when I complete the full Transcription.

From Item 3 of the microfilm FHL [1563378] here are the first six pages: 3 through 8.


And my transcription –
