Part 622s – Smith Robertson Genealogy – 1801 William, Robert, James – Belvidere, Boulogne, Madeys and Union Estates and Plantations – Part 6 of 6

13 January 2012

Good Day,

And now I come to the final and sixth part of my Transcription of this 1800 Document – Schedule B entered to the Grenada Registers of Records 2nd April 1801.

This is an amazing piece of work… and I was wondering about the poor soul who had to spend his days, and probably candlelit nights transcribing the original documents to the Registers… (His only dream in 1801 could have been… “I wish someone would invent an automatic contraption to do this work.”) And I am sure the geese always honked incessantly about having their left wing feathers plucked. Just a thought.

Anyway, in my search for any hints or leads to the discovery of the origins and genealogy of my ggg-grandfather James Smith, in Grenada, does not appear to be forthcoming in this specific 1800 Document. The three Smiths in this Document are: James - Clerk, Robert - Attorney, and William – The Reverend. There may be two William Smiths included but there is no real delineation between the two.

Here are the last six images, of the total 39 Pages, as downloaded from Item 3 of the microfilm FHL [1563378]. Pages 67 through and including 72 –



My Transcription of the last six Pages includes the sign-offs as seemed to be required. Please excuse my transcription of the German portion on Page 72.
