Man charged for attempting to commit murder
February 25, 2010
Colin Sancho, 49, of 69 Golden Grove East Coast Demerara was not required to plead to the indictable offence of attempting to commit murder when he appeared before Acting Chief Magistrate Melissa Robertson, yesterday.
It was alleged that Sancho, on February 20, last, unlawfully and maliciously wounded Aubrey Mc Kennon with the intent to murder.
Police Prosecutor Stephen Telford objected to bail and told the court that Sancho stabbed Mc Kennon several times to the abdomen.
Mc Kennon is at present a patient of the Georgetown Public Hospital in the Intensive Care Unit.
A relative of Mc Kennon, who was present in court, said that Sancho would smoke cocaine and is very troublesome. The injured man said that he was involved in an incident with Sancho some six years ago and that was the only known problem between the two men.
Sancho was remanded and is expected to make another court appearance on March 30.
Mc Kennon was attacked Saturday last as he was attempting to exit his vehicle. According to eyewitnesses the stabbing was unprovoked.
Also appearing before the same magistrate was Beverley Ralph, 43, of 7 Miles Potaro River. Ralph is accused of attempting to kill her reputed husband, Lindon Mc Calmon, on February 20, last, at Mango Landing, Konawaruk.
She was not required to plead to the indictable offence and was unrepresented by lawyer.
The mother of six was remanded and is expected to make another court appearance on April 21. The matter was transferred to the Mahdia Magistrate’s Court.

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…
