I represent the Sancho family of Guyana. Thus I would like to take this opportunity to state, the members of the kinship of Sancho of Guyana believe they are descendants of Ignatius Charles Sancho 1729-1780. I am of the opinion
1. Those three brothers are descendants of the illustrious 18th century African man of letters and the Arts, Ignatius Sancho 1729-1780.
2. I do believe them to be his grand children, the children of William Leach Osborne "Billy" Sancho 1775-1810.
3. I am six generations removed from Ignatius Sancho.
The generation chart would appear as the following
Charles Ignatius Sancho (1729 – 14 December1780)
William Leach Osborne "Billy" Sancho (20 October 1775 – 3 May 1810).
Christopher Bentick Sancho (1800-1884).
Lambert Tuckness Sancho (1852-1924).
Alexander Sancho (1873-1945).
Muriel Eleese Birchellene Sancho (15 February 1914- 29 January 1990).
Ann Dingsdale suggested Barbara, Elizabeth and Susan Legge of the eighteenth century Blackheath are the three sisters' owners of young Ignatius Sancho. Can you state whether they are your relatives? And can you obtain digital images of them? Is their reference to British Guiana in your family's story? Is there reference to Ignatius Sancho in the story of Dartmouth's - the Legge family? Can you advise and or help direct the Sancho family to obtain the necessary scientific evidence comparing DNA samples of the eighteenth century Sancho of the United Kingdom, to that of samples drawn from Sancho of Guyana? Rev Augustus Legge the sixth son of the Earl of Dartmouth, who is he to you?
The nineteenth century British Guiana, names such as Colonel Bunbury; an acting governor, Dartmouth; a plantation on the Essequibo coast, C.H.G. Legge; noted among the list of authors in the West Indian Quarterly c1885, Tuckness Sancho, Bentick Sancho and John Sancho, and Stevenson; proprietor of the Guiana Chronicle, are known. Ignatius Sancho knew those surnames. To date Sancho of Guyana and the Caribbean are unable to obtain birth records of Lambert, Bentinck and John Sancho.
Can you help the Sancho family gather information as to their English phase?
Sancho of Guyana is interested in DNA testing for scientific evaluation of the genetics of the Sancho of eighteenth century England and the Sancho of Guyana.
Who can Sancho of Guyana and the Caribbean approach for the undertaking such as DNA?
