GÂ?TOWN, Mon., Jan, 10 Â? The Daily Chronicle regrets to record the death of Mr. Ernest Arnold Humphrey Campbell, J.P., and Commissioner of Oaths to Affidavits, which took place about 4.20 oÂ?clock yesterday morning at his residence, lot 9 Croal Street, Georgetown.

The deceased who was 64 years old was ill for about two weeks. He was a true friend to many and was beloved by all those with whom he came into contact. Evidence of this was borne by the large crowd which followed in the funeral procession yesterday afternoon.

Mr. Campbell was born on December 13, 1879, at Enterprise, Leguan Island, Essequebo, to the late Mr. Samuel Augustus Campbell (schoolmaster), and his wife, the late Mrs. Rebecca Campbell nee Humphrey and was educated at St. PhilipÂ?s Anglican School. After leaving school he joined the Civil Service retiring after 33 years and when he held the office of Clerk of Court of the Georgetown Judicial District. Between 1904 and 1935 Mr. Campbell served as Secretary and Short Hand writer of the following Government Commissions: RegistrarÂ?s Office Commission (1904), Penal Settlement Inquiry (1906), Hospital Commission (1907), Church Disestablishment Commission (1929), Penal Settlement Inquiry (1922).


The funeral took place yesterday afternoon. The Rev. Fr. J. Goodwin, S.J. conducted a short service at the house after which the cortege proceeded to the Brickdam Cathedral where Fr. Goodwin also officiated at a quiet and simple ceremony. From the Cathedral the procession moved onto Le Repentir where the interment took place, Fr. Goodwin performing the last rites at the graveside.

Mr. Campbell has left to mourn their loss his beloved wife, Virginia; his only daughter Mrs. Dorothy Bayley (wife of Dr. R. T. Bayley); two brothers, Dr. W. W. Campbell and Mr. C. A. Campbell (solicitor); and one sister, Mrs. A. B. Brown.

To these and other relatives the Daily Chronicle tenders its sympathy Â? (R. A. V.)

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…
