James OLDFIELD/SMITH

#1
Hi,

I'm back :2fun::2fun:

Was trolling google for our elusive Mr Smith or is it Oldfield :D:D

Found correspondence from 2002 in a letter by Lesley Uebel !!

"I think I have found where you found the Smith name

In the 1822 Muster it has the following
HANSHAW, Ann BC Wife to J. Smith - Windsor
then there are 3 children listed (no names, no ages) children to J Smith,
Windsor

then it also has the following
HENSHAW, no name Child of Ann Henshaw, Windsor
HENSHAW, no name, Child of Ann Henshaw, Windsor

on checking James Smith ( I am assuming James and not John) in this name
Muster it really only has one possible person
James Smith who arrived on the Cornwallis, FBS, Landholder at Windsor."

Can someone access the 1822 Muster?

Also found in Colonial Secretary Index :
