Sanko of Sierra Leone and Sancho of Guyana

 This Sancho has set his sights, his focus on two Sanko traders; Bubakara Sanko and Alimami Brima Konkori Sankoh.
This Sancho believes either Bubakara Sanko of Cunnia or Alimami Brima Konkori Sankoh (b. Melakori - d. 1817), ruler of Port Loko, 1806 – 1817,  is possibly ancestors and/or immediate relatives of Tuckness Sancho and Bentick Sancho  in the African experience.
This Sancho believes Tuckness Sancho and Bentick Sancho are not their original names.
This Sancho believes Tuckness Sancho and Bentick Sancho were Muslims.
This Sancho believes Tuckness Sancho and Bentick Sancho resided at Saindugu, Port Loko, Sierra Leone.
This Sancho believes Tuckness Sancho and Bentick Sancho were captured and sold as slaves following the execution of Alimami Brima Konkori Sankoh in 1817.
This Sancho believes Tuckness Sancho and Bentick Sancho were cargoed into the Americas before 1819.
This Sancho believes Tuckness Sancho and Bentick Sancho were enslaved at Plantation Enmore, in the colony of Demerary before 1819.
This Sancho believes Tuckness Sancho and Bentick Sancho did not participate in the slave revolt in August 1823, on the East Sea Coast of Demerara. This Sancho believes Tuckness Sancho and Bentick Sancho are immediate relatives.  The exact nature of their relationship needs to be identified and revealed to Sancho people.
This Sancho believes Tuckness Sancho and Bentick Sancho formed unions and established families at Plantation Enmore.
This Sancho believes at some point after August 1, 1838, Tuckness Sancho and Bentick Sancho left Plantation Enmore and settled at Plantation Friendship.
This Sancho believes Tuckness Sancho and Bentick Sancho and Job Timmermy were Joint-Proprietors of a share of land at Plantation Friendship. I am told I missed the documentation as exhibited by OGBG, July - December 1854.
This Sancho believes either Tuckness Sancho or Bentick Sancho is the father of Adelaide Sancho. Miss Adelaide Sancho is the ancestor of the kinship of Luke who are descendants of Sancho.
This Sancho believes Tuckness Sancho, his great grandfather has a relative, named Tuckness Sancho, the son of Tuckness Sancho, who was enslaved with Bentick Sancho at Plantation Enmore.
This Sancho believes Bentick Sancho and his immediate relatives are entombed in the vault in the cemetery at Golden Grove, East Coast Demerara. This Sancho does not believe any of the six known children of Bentick Sancho and Mary Sancho are entombed in the vault in the cemetery at Golden Grove. This Sancho believes Tuckness Sancho and his wife, Lucy Sancho may also be entombed in the vault. This Sancho believes seven relatives are entombed in the vault.
This Sancho believes Mary Sancho and Sarah Sancho are names of the same individual. Mary Sancho and Sarah Sancho are names of the same wife of Bentick Sancho. This Sancho believes Sumner is the maiden name of great great-grandmother. This Sancho believes Thomas Sumner, an Irish, is the father of Mary Sancho. Other than being an enslave African this Sancho has no idea of the identity of great great great-grandmother.
This Sancho believes Pollidore Bentick, Sancho George, and Sancho Adams, shareholders at Northbrook (Victoria), New Orange Nassau (Buxton) and Ann’s Grove are relatives of Tuckness Sancho and Bentick Sancho.
This Sancho wonders what if any is the relationship of Adonis Seaforth and Mary Hanover to Tuckness Sancho and Bentick Sancho. Adonis Seaforth and Mary Hanover   were also enslaved at Plantation Enmore.

This Sancho wonders besides Emily (Christopher) Callighan who are the members of the kinship of Christopher who are descendants of Sancho.

Bertrand Aaran Abrams (1929-1969). An Unsung Guyanese Patriot

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…

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?
