Part 619s – Smith Robertson Genealogy – 1801 William, Robert, James – Belvidere, Boulogne, Madeys and Union Estates and Plantations – Part 3 of 6

10 January 2012

Good Day,

And now on to the third session of six that incorporate my Transcription work of the 1800 Document from the Grenada Registers of Records. All-things-being equal there has been no immediate clue or hint of connection to ggg-grandfather James Smith. I can’t even say how old ggg-grandfather James was in 1800, but his first child, Eley, of whom I have an 1814 Baptism record, was born in 17 March 1812. So was ggg-grandfather an infant, a young child, or a young man at the time of the recording of the 1800 Document?

From the “S Index”of the Grenada Registers of Records the entry “Scott Alexr. & others . . . . to James Law & his Trustees Conveyance (of 2 Estates) Folio 1” includes this Document and the previous ones that I worked with in Parts 614s and the Document beginning in Part 608s and Part 535s.

In my research this proves to the point that I cannot only depend upon that which is included in the “old” Indexes… or for that matter what may be recorded in “new” Index. All-things-being-equal the “old” Index of this specific Register of Records of Grenada may have been created sometime in the early 1800s. As you can see the only surnames included in the Register Index are Scott and Law. And what does this mean? It means that I have to peruse, review, read the complete Document to determine that any Smiths, the surname of which I am concerned, are included in the body of the test. Bottom-line, there are NO shortcuts.

The following names are names that appear only on the first page of the Schedule Document; Page 34. (See Part 617s.)
