Part 639s - Smith Robertson Genealogy – 1802 Port D’Espagne, Trinidad – Benjamin D’Harriette Smith – 3rd Installment

13 February 2012

Good Day,

This next Indenture dated 28 August 1802 and entered to the Grenada Registers of Records 7 January 1803 appears to be the third and final Document of a series of contracts between Benjamin D’Harriette Smith and Archibald Armstrong. These Contracts all seem to be centered around the Lot of Land in Port D’Espagne, Trinidad.

At this point, I have not found any blatant inter-connection or tie to ggg-grandfather James Smith. This is a continuation of my search and research for the genealogy and origins of ggg-grandfather James to Grenada.

Here are the images of Pages 174 through and including 181 from the Grenada Registers of Records as downloaded from Item 4 of the microfilm FHL [1563378].


My transcription. Please note that I have attempted to place a line break at the end of each line as it appears from the actual script in the Document. There may be a word-wrap "over-run" but doing it this way actually provides in keeping with the actual Indenture. I could reduce the pitch of the font to make a "neat and tidy" presentation but then it may require an increase in sales of magnifying glasses.
