Sancho of the Buxton-Friendship Village District

I am searching for the descendants of Tuckness Sancho. I am aware; prior to his death around January 1873, Tuckness Sancho, the brother of my great great grand father Bentick Sancho and John Sancho, resided at Friendship Village. Tuckness Sancho was a landed proprietor at Friendship Village. It is thus apparent Tuckness Sancho either married at female of the village of Friendship and/or reproduced off springs with female and/or females of the Buxton-Friendship district. This is the likely scenario, for at that period Buxton and Friendship were separate administrative districts. People were not allowed to own land in districts in which they did not reside therein and or were not descendants of people of the district.
Buxton and Friendship would become one district by virtue of the Village Administration Ordinance of 1892 which returned the business of local government somewhat into the hands of the first generation of the descendants of the shareholders of the villages.
The data of Tuckness Sancho, his children, his spouse and/or the mothers of his children are not known. However, a number of folks connected to the Buxton-Friendship Village district are believed to be his descendants.
These include members of the following kinships; BARNWELL, GILL, LEWIS, LUKE, MCGARRELL, PAUL, RILEY, SANCHO, SMITH, YAW, and YOUNGE.

I believe among the descendants of Tuckness Sancho are the members of the kinship of Sancho of the Buxton-Friendship Village District; including the following;
D. Sancho (Friendship Wesleyan Society c.1918), the family of Benjamin Sancho (the one-handed mason), and his wife; Susan Angelina Sancho, and their children; Harold Sancho, Walter Sancho, Hector George Sancho (Ituni), Dorothy "Dot" Sancho (Teacher, Buxton Congregational Mission School), Clarice Angelina Sancho (Teacher, Better Hope C. M.), and their grandchildren; Ruth Sancho Lewis (United Kingdom), Bernard Sancho (Antigua), June Sancho (Antigua), and Lynda Sancho (Buxton), the family of Emily Sancho, and her sons, Augustus Sancho, and Alfred Sancho, Cyril Sancho, Stanley Sancho, Margaret Smith, Zipporah Sancho, George Sancho, Gustavus Sancho, Sprockton Sancho, Theresa Sancho and Roberta Sancho.

I am trying to obtain contact information of Bernard Sancho and any and/or all the people of Sancho in Antigua and elsewhere. I am of the opinion Bernard Sancho is a Pastor in St. John's. His sister June Sancho may very well be in Antigua as well. There are also a number of Sancho of NO# 2 Village Canje, in Antigua. I am also aware; Sancho of Plaisance and Sancho of Buxton are also in Antigua.

Who must I speak with to learn of Damon Dick and thereby be enlightened regarding whether he is a relative of Paul of Buxton and Sancho?
Are you aware of an individual or a number of persons who can and /or may very well be able to enlighten me – and therefore provide me with the answers to question I am seeking?
If you are unable to help me, could you please refer those who may be able to bring a measure of understanding to this process?
I shall be more than happy to share information I have on the kinship of Sancho.
If you have access to such please forward to me – soonest.
Thank you ever so very much for your time and consideration

BARNWELL: the family of Station Master Barnwell and his wife, Teacher Barnwell maiden name Elias (Teacher, Golden Grove Wesleyan School) and their children; Stanley Barnwell, Sydney Fitz Clarence Barnwell, Neville Barnwell, and Kenneth Barnwell. The family resided at Enmore Front Lands, East Sea Coast of Demerara. I am positive I was told Stanley Barnwell was married to Unna Weatherspoon. Sydney Fitz Clarence Barnwell is a Medical Doctor. He graduated in 1955. Dr. Sydney Fitz Clarence Barnwell resides in North Carolina. Kenneth Barnwell was the Registrar of the Supreme Court in Guyana. He is known to be resident in Texas with an off spring who is a Medical Doctor.

BARNWELL: Agnes Bastiani is also a fore-parent of Alice "Big Auntie" Barnwell, Kaneo Barnwell, and Cain Top Barnwell. The Barnwell family resided in the following villages; Annandale, Beterverwagting, Buxton, and Triumph. I am positive I was told Agnes Bastiani, Teasie Johnson, and Sarah Johnson are sisters. Sarah Johnson was also known as Limmie Sancho. I believe Agnes Bastiani, Teasie Johnson, and Limmie Sancho are likely daughters of Edmond Sancho. The need is to be made aware whether these three sisters are indeed daughters of Edmond Sancho. Teasie Johnson is the grand mother of Cecil Hughes and Megan Hughes. Sarah Johnson married Pirat Roberts. The union issued three sons. Derrick Roberts is a grand son of Limmie Sancho.

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…
