The Sancho Family Surviving Story
The information that has survived, via the Black oral traditions states, in the era of the British slave emancipation and
Apprenticeship, three Black men, born in London, biological brothers named John, Bentinck, and Lambert Tuckness Sancho, left England, and in 1838, arrived in colonial British Guiana.
The three Sancho brothers settled, for a while in the Golden Grove-Nabaclis area, on the East Coast of Demerara. The Sanchos were employed in the sugar industry, at Enmore. The three Sanchos were among a number of persons who purchased the plantations Golden Grove, Nabaclis and Belfield.
A forefather, born to enslaved parents, on a slave ship on it's way to the West Indies. The child, at a very young age, was taken from the West Indies to England and there was raised by three white women.
An atmosphere, of women related problems, led John Sancho to abandon British Guiana. It is understood, he made it to Grenada and there, lived a settled life. I'm of the opinion Sanchos of Trinidad and Grenada, are principally his descendants.
Bentinck Sancho left Demerara, and it is accepted he resided in the Canje river valley, a region, in Berbice, perhaps Cumberland. The opinion is Sanchos of Berbice and Surinam are his descendants.
