Conversation with Cousin Brenda - 5/11/2003 - A summary

I spoke with my good cousin Brenda, last night (5/11/2003) and I am very pleased to state I was duly informed that Joyce C. Moore is not great Aunt Winifred Sancho-Moore’s daughter but her husband’s child. Thus I have no choice but to remove name from the list of Notable Sanchos.
Secondly, Cousin Brenda remembers attending a function in 1948 a 100th year celebrations in Nabaclis, in which her mother great Aunt Eileen Sancho-Abrams was honored.
I slept with it – analytical thinking – suggest perhaps there were two 100th year celebrations in Nabaclis in the 1940’s, within five years of each other – one for Sancho and the other for the village.
Is it logical – yes –Is this emotional – yes- but is it the truth – I do not know – do you?
There was a fire in the village office and it’s very possible the records of the proceedings may have been destroyed. This is not known – therefore Sanchos must consider the village office may not reveal helpful information but, never the less it’s worth the effort to investigate as a source of Sancho information.
Cousin Brenda was unable to shed any light on the relationship between the following; Dowridge, Gravesande, Moses all of Victoria, and Sancho. I also asked Cousin Brenda to commit her memory to writing the history of the school, she founded.

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?

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…

Bertrand Aaran Abrams (1929-1969).  An Unsung Guyanese Patriot “On July 21, 1954, the plaintiff was convicted by the magistrate of the East Demerara Judicial District for being on June 10, 1954, in possession of prohibited publications contrary to s. 4 of the Undesirable Publications (Prohibition of Importation) Ordinance, and fined $25 or one month’s imprisonment in default. The complaint was filed on June 30, 1954, and made returnable for July 7, 1954.”  “As the appeal against your conviction has been abandoned and the fine paid, I have to inform you that, in accordance with the ruling of the Law Officers for the breach of the emergency regulations, you are dismissed from your post as a Cl. II Assistant Teacher in Cane Grove Anglican School as from 11th January, 1955.”  - Joseph H. Jones, Manager, Cane Grove Anglican School. Opinion – I have no recollection of anyone telling Bertrand Abrams was fired as a school teacher. And for whatever the reasons offered by the colonial authorit…
