Part 624s – Smith Robertson Genealogy – 1799 Robert Smith – Grand Roi and Mon Plaisir Estates, Saint John – Part 1 of 2

Good Day,

When is a Risotto not a Risotto? According to what I have read, there is no true Risotto but made with three types of rice: Arborio, Carnaroli, and Nano.

Okay, okay, something to do with the ‘pearl’ in the center of the rice. Well last night I tried something different, once again, for supper – Chicken and Orzo Pasta… and made it like a Risotto. ‘Twas ever so easy to prepare. Chicken breast cut in some fork-sized bites, water and chicken broth, and Orzo pasta all thrown into the pot. Brought to a boil and then lowered heat and stirred every so often for about 12 minutes. In the meantime I fried up some sliced mushrooms and minced garlic in olive oil and butter. Once the chicken orzo concoction was sort of done, I threw in the mushrooms and garlic, some various herbs, pepper and salt, and about a ¼ cup chopped Nasturtium flowers, stems, leaves, and all. Then I stirred in a bit more than a ¼ cup of Parmesan Cheese. Served it with shaved Parmesan Cheese on warmed plates. Too, too good.

And then I got back to my Transcription Project in my search and research for the genealogy and origins of my ggg-grandfather James Smith. I have decided that one of my genealogy priorities this 2012, sort of a resolution, (but don’t count on it), is to transcribe as much of those Smith-related Documents from the period of 1764 through 1850 that are available from the Grenada Registers of Records. All-things-being-equal I would hope to find more hints, clues, and leads to the origins and genealogy of ggg-grandfather James. For your information, that would be about 23 of the 33 16mm microfilms that are housed at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City.

In keeping with my goal, here is the next 1799 Document of the Grenada Registers of Records from Item 3 of the microfilm FHL [1563378]. This one includes the attorney Robert Smith of Basinghall Street, London. His name, and work appears to be a possible constant over a number of Documents. There does not appear to be any reference or link to ggg-grandfather James Smith included in the nine pages of this Indenture.

For your information I try to include as many as possible surnames as labels to my Postings. All-things-being-equal the following are names, as transcribed, included in this 1799 Indenture:

  • James Campbell
  • Alexander Cockburn
  • Thomas Harrison
  • Me∫srs French and Johnston
  • Sir Richard Carr Glyn
  • Monsr LeVevier
  • Marie Madelaine Coulon Mariecheau
  • Monsr Marreaud
  • Joseph Marryat
  • Samuel Marryat
  • James Mays
  • Jean Baptiste Ollivier
  • John Orr
  • Henry Poole
  • William Postlethwaite
  • Messors St. Germain
  • James Clark Satterwaite
  • Robert Smith
  • Robert Wiltshire
