Origins of Sancho of Trinidad
What are the origins of Sancho of Trinidad?
The agenda is to decipher the links of Sancho people of Guyana, Trinidad and Saint Vincent. I am trying to locate and communicate with Sancho of Trinidad. The need is to identify the descendants of John Sancho, Charles Sancho, Mary (Sancho) Sandy, Emma Sancho and Tuckness Sancho of East Coast Demerara, Guyana (formerly British Guiana).  Thereby, begin the process of ascertaining their story of their Sancho legacy. The agenda is also about reuniting the members of the kinship of Sancho beyond political borders as per their proverbial family tree. 
I need to learn who the Sancho people of Trinidad and Saint Vincent really are. Is it possible Sancho of Saint Vincent are relatives of Sancho of Guyana? Is it possible, Mary Sancho of New Adelphi, Donald Cambridge, Henrietta Sancho and Lydia Sancho of Layou, and Luburd Sancho are relatives of Bentick Sancho and Tuckness Sancho? Is it possible Sancho Lyttle is a member of the kinship of Sancho of Saint Vincent? Is it possible Meilin Sancho of Trinidad and Tobago, legendary Carnival Parade official in London, United Kingdom knows the lineages, heritage of Sancho of Saint Vincent? He is a regular participant in the carnivals in London and Nottingham. I need to link with Meilin Sancho soonest. Meilin Sancho happens to be the brother of Keith Sancho, a technocrat in public service in Trinidad and Tobago.
I believe Sancho of Guyana and Sancho of St. Vincent migrated to the southern regions of Trinidad. There Sancho the immigrants raised generations of Sancho. A number of years ago, Keith Sancho, the father of Brent Sancho, told me, his Sancho ancestors were resident in St. Vincent. I am pretty sure Keith Sancho stated Liburd Sancho is his most ancient known ancestor. Keith Sancho pointed out, his brother, Meilin Sancho resident in the United Kingdom, is the principal historian of his Sancho family group. At this late date, I have not been able to make contact with Meilin Sancho. 

 These include; the relatives of Sancho of Trinidad; WILLIAMS, BATISTE, DELWIN, BRERETON, DAVID, TRUESDALE, GAY, MAGARESH, VALENTINE, CASTLE and LYONS from Point Fortin. Their related families are MARCANO, WESTON, INNOCENCE, BRERETON and FYFIE.

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…

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?

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…
