Nurse charged with punching conductress in stomach
A NURSE from the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) who refused to pay the ‘increase’ in minibus fare, yesterday appeared in court for allegedly assaulting the conductress of the minibus. The case was called before Acting Chief Magistrate Priya Sewnarine-Beharry and particulars of the offence stated that Marcilla Sancho (no address given), unlawfully assaulted Bibi Alli on March 30.She pleaded not guilty and was represented by Attorney-at-law Mr. Satyesh Kissoon who made a bail application.The lawyer informed the court that his client was in a minibus and the virtual complainant was the conductress. He said the virtual complainant began to abuse his client compelling her to pay an extra $20.Kissoon said his client refused to pay the money. The virtual complainant is claiming that Sancho punched her in the stomach. Kissoon alleged that the virtual complainant began to abuse other passengers in the bus and told them to get out the bus if they cannot pay $80 as the fare.Police Corporal Venetta Pindar, prosecuting, said her facts differ from the lawyer’s and that it was the defendant who first attacked the virtual complainant.Pindar said the virtual complainant announced at the bus park that the fare is $80 and the defendant remained in the bus until she reached her destination and handed the virtual complainant $60.The prosecutor said when the virtual complainant asked for $20 more the defendant became annoyed and cuffed her to her stomach.The virtual complainant, who was present in court, said the defendant punched her three times to her stomach because she asked for the additional $20.Sancho was sent on her own recognizance and the matter was transferred to another court for April 18.

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…
