Julio Iglesias release of Sancho Lick He Luva

Cousin Cecil,

Even if I were wrong about Kayla Sancho – I am positive, now, more than ever – I have the right idea. Sancho need to do all Sancho can to protect their belongings – their story, perhaps, could well be a financial coup for others. This is and was the idea behind my actions regarding Kayla Sancho.

Venis pulled my coat in regard to protecting Sancho Story and information. I have no beef with those who display that sort of concern and commitment.

In light of this Julio Iglesias release of Sancho Lick He Luva – I am now more than ever concerned and committed to the idea of protecting Sancho from the cultural pirates. It’s one thing to continue to deny us Ignatius Sancho 1729-80, to enslave and to benefit from his works because ‘OLE’ Ignatius may or may not be our father. However, it’s totally sickening that great uncle Clarence Sancho’s story would not be beneficial to his relatives and to the community which created the folk song. That’s high daylight robbery by cultural pirates.

Why must Sancho allow this without seeking recourse? What can be done?

Kenneth Robertson in my humble opinion – misses the boat completely – and thus owes Muriel and her siblings, Alexander and his siblings, Tuckness and his siblings, Bentick, his siblings and ancestor an apology for his tirade in the Kayla Sancho episode. I’ll never forgive him that’s for sure. I feel totally vindicated…

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?

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…
