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…

Who are Descendants of Clarence Sancho and Mary (David) Sancho?

Are you aware of Samuel David and Mary (David)Sancho of Golden Grove? Samuel David was a Sergeant of British Guiana Police Force.  Samuel David departed in 1945 or 1946. Mary David and Clarence Sancho were married. The couple had about seven children. Much respect to Wainwright for pointing pieces of information on the David and Sancho union  to me some 43 years ago. Who must I consult to acquire the  knowledge  relative to David family  especially the descendants of  grand Uncle Clarence  Sancho?

Edward Sancho and Betsy Ann (nee Barry) Sancho of New Ground, Rose Hall

At this point, I am convinced Edward Charles Sancho is also the name of the spouse of Betsy Ann (nee Barry) Sancho. Richmond Barry is also her immediate relative.  I’m thinking. Edward Sancho is likely the Member of Council of the Local Authority of Rose Hall Village District, 1918.  Edward Sancho is an immediate relative of Marjorie Sancho, and Beatrice Sancho of Rose Hall Village, Corentyne Coast, Berbice, and Neighbor" Sancho, the father of Patrick Sancho. Edward Sancho was also a stray catcher on the lower Corentyne Coast. Patrick Sancho was known as Killa; A. Sancho, Mayor Sancho, were also catchers of stray animals on the Corentyne Coast Albion and Port Mourant c. 1918 – 1950, I am told there were Bea Sancho (perhaps Beatrice Sancho) and her sister Marjorie Sancho at Rose Hall Village on the Corentyne. Marjorie Sancho had several sons. Bea Sancho did not have children. I am told there are Sancho family members at Skeldon. I am certain I never knew there were Sancho in Skeld…

Cort and Sancho

I am attempting to account for all the members of the kinship of Sancho. This is part of the process of preparing the Sancho Family Tree. I am looking particularly for members of the kinship of Sancho. Therefore, I am hereby asking you to please point me to the members, relatives, friends and associates of the following kinships of ABRAMS, BATSON, BENJAMIN, BEST, BOATSWAIN, CAMPBELL, CHRISTIAN, CORT, CRANDON, DAVIS, DOWNER, FINGAL, FRASER, FRESO, GEORGE, HAYNES, HAZEL, HOMER, KING, LA FLEUR, LANCASTER, LEITCH, MARKS, MOORE, NILES, NURSE, PATTERSON, QUINTIN, REYNOLDS, ROSS, SANCHO, SMITH, WILLIAMS, WILSON and YOUNG - and several others of the Corentyne Coast, the Canje River Basin, New Amsterdam, West Coast Berbice, and other locations in Berbice. The need is to identify the ancestor of Sancho of Berbice. Thereby link the people of Sancho of Berbice to Bentick Sancho, John Sancho, Tuckness Sancho, and George Sancho, of the East Coast of Demerara. I am also researching the kinships of …

Sanko of Sierra Leone and Sancho of Guyana

This Sancho has set his sights, his focus on two Sanko traders; Bubakara Sanko and Alimami Brima Konkori Sankoh. This Sancho believes either Bubakara Sanko of Cunnia or Alimami Brima Konkori Sankoh (b.
