Sancho of West Coast Berbice

Who are Sancho of the West Coast of Berbice? How about CERES, DOWNER, NOBLE, and SEARS of West Coast Berbice, perhaps of # 8 Village, West Coast Berbice?
This Sancho is  very interested in linking with family historians of ANGUS. CERES, CUMMINGS, DOWNER, FRASER, FORDYCE, NOBLE, SANCHO, SAUL and SEARS of Belladrum and other communities on the West Sea Coast of Berbice, immediately. A young African Guyanese British female informed that she is aware of a Fordyce and Sancho union. She promised to try to obtain details as best she can.
I am also interested in locating and accessing and obtaining vintage photographs of our people

Kendall Sancho

Kendall and Sancho? 
 I admit; I confess I need to be enlightened. I need to  know how Cousin Maude is related to Muriel Sancho. I thought it was perhaps courtesy of the pattern of behavior of the people of the past in the rural district.
Cousin Marie Luke-Austin told me;

Theophilus Augustus Luke (1867-1957) is her father.Theophilus Augustus Luke (1867-1957) told his children that Cousin Maude   and Cousin Birdie   are his relatives….  She does not recall the exact nature of the relationship.Adelaide Sancho (Abigail Sancho) is her paternal grandmother…Susan Giles (Susannah Giles) is the mother of Adelaide Sancho (Abigail Sancho).
Louis O. Nestor told me

John Baptiste Sanco

On Friday, March 20, 2009, I visited the New York Public Library, Humanities and Social Sciences (Research Division). I accessed copies of the Trinidad and Tobago year books for the years 1921 thru 1935. I paid particular attention to the obituary, which is found immediately following local events in the publications.

I made notes of the data of persons with the surnames of interest to me. At this instance I cannot locate the entire documentation.
In the yearbook for the year 1929 data is found telling readers that Mrs. Elizabeth Sancho, 92 years old died on November 30, 1928. I suppose she was born in either 1835 or 1836.  (perhaps, wife of John Sancho??)
In other issues of the yearbook entries listed below are included.
Mrs. Rupert Sancho died November 13, 1924 (Possibly, Chinese-Trinidadian)
John Baptiste Sanco died February 17, 1920. (I believe data will prove this John Sancho to be perhaps too young to be an uncle of Lambert Tuckness Sancho, for I am of the impression Sancho male…
