Sancho and Sandy?

Highest Blessings!
Are you familiar with members of the kinship of Sandy of Golden Grove, on the East Coast of Demerara? How about those who are descendants of Sancho? Who mentioned in this correspondence are among the members of your kinship of Sandy ? Do you have any idea whether Lynette Sandy is the wife of Mark McLean? Who do you think I ought to consult to locate and obtain the contact information for the descendants of Pet Sandy, including Elaine Sandy, Lynette Sandy and her other immediate relatives?

I am told:
  1. One brother, and three sisters – Pet Sandy, Mrs. Spencer, Sophia Bristol, Joyce Harlequin
  2.  Son of Cecil Joyce and Lynnette Sandy, Marjorie Sandy, Francina Sandy
  3. Frederick William Sandy is the father of Eulan Richard Sandy. Frederick William Sandy married the grandmother of Gladstone Crowther. She is a member of the kinship of Billy of Grenada. Frederick William Sandy was a miner. George W. Billy was his partner in the mining industry in Cuyuni River District.
  4. Frederick William Sandy was the foreman of the Jury in the trial of the murder of Dorothy Rice in Georgetown , British Guiana in 1915. The accused was convicted, sentenced to death by hanging. He received the ultimate punishment shortly there after. His name slips me at this minute. Dorothy Rice was one of the females at the forefront of the working class struggle in Georgetown , British Guiana at the beginnings of the twentieth century. In fact, she was a champion of the Ruimveldt Riots of November 28 – December 5, 1905.
  5. Eulan Richard Sandy is the father of Lynnette Sandy.
  6. Sophia Bristol is perhaps the mother of Sheila Abrams, Sandra Abrams.
  7. Pet Sandy, is the mother of Elaine Sandy, Lynnette Sandy, and perhaps a son and another daughter.
  8. Pet Sandy is the grand mother of Judy Sandy, and June Benn and several others.

I am told the descendants of Louisa Sandy also include members of the family of Dutchin, the family of Marshall including; Faye Marshall, Florence Marshall and Miriam Scott Zephyr, Herman Lowe, Elaine Abrams, Sheila Abrams, Sandra Abrams, Cousin Phelp, Malcolm Spencer and Morris Spencer, Lynette Sandy, Odessa Sandy, Judy Sandy, June Benn; the daughter of Buddy Benn and Lynnette Sandy, Pet Sandy, and Elaine Sandy among numerous others.
I am told they are indeed descendants of Sancho by Louisa Sandy. Other relatives include the descendants of Petal Sandy and her daughter Elaine. I am aware; one of the Sandy females died in the Bronx a few years ago. Also Louisa Sandy is not a descendant of Benjamin Sandy and Mary Sancho. However, Louisa Sandy is understood to be a descendant of Christopher Bentick Sancho (1875-1956). Therefore the interest in their ancestral connections is focused on their relationship to Big Daddy Christy Sancho. Do you have any idea who the descendants of Benjamin Sandy are? Who must be contacted to obtain the relevant information concerning the descendants of Benjamin Sandy and his wife Mary Sancho? What is the relationship of Dutchin, Herman Lowe, Elaine Abrams, Sheila Abrams, Sandra Abrams and Cousin Phelp, Faye Marshall, Florence Marshall and Miriam Scott Zephyr, Malcolm Spencer and Morris Spencer, Inez Blair, Odessa Sandy, Judy Sandy, daughter of Buddy Benn and Lynnette Sandy, Pet Sandy, Elaine Sandy to Christopher Bentick Sancho (1875-1956)? What is the relationship of the members of the kinship of Sandy of Bush Corner to descendants of Christopher Bentick Sancho (1875-1956)?

 I am seeking the descendants and relatives of Benjamin Sandy and his wife, Mary Sancho. Mrs. Mary Sandy is the daughter of Mr. Bentick and Mrs. Mary Sancho. Mrs. Mary Sandy is the sister of Lambert Tuckness Sancho. The children of Benjamin Sandy and Mary Sancho are: Cecil Sandy, Annie Sophia Sandy, Cecily Sandy, and Sarah Mathilda Sandy (School Mistress) , Winston Sandy (Police Officer), Bertie Sandy, Jonathan Sandy and Augustine Sandy (brothers), Neville Sandy and Winston Sandy (brothers), and Wycliffe Sandy [Carpenter]Charity Amazon, Essequibo, Frederick William Sandy, Louisa Sandy, Arnett Sandy, Stephen Sandy, Percy Sandy, Llewellyn Augustus Sandy, Charles Sandy, Eulan Richard Sandy, James Sandy, Lynnette Sandy, Marjorie Sandy, Francina Sandy, Odessa Sandy, Judy Sandy, Pet Sandy, Elaine Sandy, Herman Lowe, Elaine Abrams, Sheila Abrams, Sandra Abrams, Faye Marshall, Florence Marshall, Miriam Scott , Miriam Scott Zephyr, Beryl Royus Sandy, Gladys Sandy, Granunie Sandy, Maxine Sandy, Gloria Sandy, Anthony Sandy, Eric Sandy, Joellen L. Sandy, Karen Sandy, Michele Sandy, Bernadette M. Sandy, Eric Sandy ,Randi Sandy, Randolph Sandy , Ruth M. Sandy ,

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…
