Learned Members of Golden Grove and Nabaclis Village District

Let me point out that in February 1856 Golden Grove Wesleyan Church was serving the community under the Rev. Wm. Hudson – that’s the earliest date I’ve encountered. I have only W. A. Deane, Schoolmaster of Golden Grove Wesleyan School (c.1880s), before Thomas Arthur Archer.
I do not know whether Thomas Arthur Archer’s children were all born in the community, thus only Phyllis Kendall is included because she returned and is resident in the Nabaclis community, for a very long period.

Ivy Nelbertha Loncke and Catherine Cole were music and school teachers - the other children were in the medical field.

Carlton Paton Browne Melbourne – I think came out of the Unity-Lancaster District- prior to being a resident of Nabaclis.

Identifying Gill Lineage - Descendants of Sancho

Soliciting Information - Gill of Guyana and Barbados.  I am really focusing on the Sancho lineage. I believe it's best to chat about the Gill people from the migration from Barbados to Demerara to the known members of Buxton and Friendship and thus to Golden Grove, Nabaclis and Haslington and their movement beyond Guyana in the twentieth century. I need to be enlightened.  I am soliciting information on the lineage of the kinship of GILL. I need to identify the Sancho ancestor of the members of the kinship of Gill, mentioned below. I am referring to Gill of Buxton-Friendship and their off springs - Arthur Gill and his descendants – of Golden Grove-Nabaclis.  The known members of this Gill kinship of Gill includes; Susan Elizabeth Gill died on Sunday, November 27, 1938.  Ms. Gill was 91 years old. Ms. Gill is the mother of Edith Gill, Irene Gill, Winnie Gill, Arthur Gill, Iris Gill, Oscar Gill, and Princess Gill. Source: The Daily Chronicle - Monday, November 27, 1939: page eight.  Art…

"Racism isn't resolved in bed no matter who's sleeping with whom" … Jan Carew

Sancho of Berbice is found in several locations including; Rose Hall Town,Port Mourant,Corriverton, and New Amsterdam. This Sancho is interested, in Sancho who are about contributing to this process. This Sancho is grateful to Sancho who consider the future generations of Sancho.  This Sancho is with future generations of Sancho will benefit from the effort you and I make today, to know ourselves.
I am interested in the story of the kinships of BENTICK, CAMPBELL, FRIDAY, KISSOON, SANCHO, SOLOMON, and YOUNG (YOUNGE) of Guyana, and the Caribbean basin and the authentic history of the working people of Golden Gr…
