Subject: A Sancho descendant
It is a pleasure contacting you and commending you on your research of the Sancho descendants of Trinidad.
I am Jean Williams Delwin, the mother of Gail and Deanne who recently emailed you, but my other children are Danny, Terry, Donna, Denise, and Carleene. I am also the elder sister of Eunice Williams (Len). We also had a brother who is deceased named Beresford Gay. We are the Great grandchildren of John Sancho.
My mother Sarah Williams (God rest her soul) and her siblings Popsi, Leonard, Dora, and Hilton (all of whom are deceased), were the grandchildren of John and Mary Elizabeth Sancho. They all lived with their grandparents John and Elizabeth Sancho. Ann Sancho Tuitt was their mother. Her brother's name was Lindsey Sancho. Lindsey Sancho had one daughter whose name was Violet Sancho who later married a Castle. It is Ann and Lindsey's offspring, and their children who are the descendants of the Sancho tribe of Trinidad. The Marcano's, Weston's, Innocence, Brereton and Fyfies were in-laws to John Sancho since they were Mary Elizabeth Sancho's sisters.
According to my mother's words; John and Elizabeth Sancho were from the 'Fifth Company' Moruga (and not Mayaro) Trinidad. I do not know if John Sancho originally resided in Mayaro and may have later moved to Moruga. They owned land in Moruga. I do not know if John Sancho my great grandfather may have had other children besides Ann and Lindsey. My mother referred to John Sancho as papa, and when she spoke of him she mentioned him always wearing a gold bracelet. He was deceased before his wife and they (God bless their souls) where both buried at the Anglican cemetery in Princess town. I believe some of these records could be in the Anglican Church. I really do not know if the Indians and Chinese Sancho's of 'Fifth Co. Moruga' are also his descendants.
John Sancho's descendants from their daughter Ann Tuitt Williams are: Williams, Batiste, Delwin, Brereton, David, Truesdale, Gay, Magaresh and Valentine. These all make up the Sancho tribe from Trinidad. John Sancho's descendants from their son Lindsey would be Castle and Lyons. Those from Ann's line reside in Trinidad, the United States, Canada and England. Those from Lindsey (from what I can recall) went to Point Fortin Trinidad. I too would like to know if the Indian and Chinese Sancho's of Moruga are also John Sancho's descendants. Thank you.
