Announcements of Deaths Victoria Elliott, Annie Sophia Elliott and Tuckness Sancho

Announcements of the Deaths of Miss Victoria Elliott and her mother, Mrs. Annie Sophia Elliott and her grand Uncle Tuckness Sancho
This creature compared the information printed in the media respecting the transitions of Miss Victoria Elliott and her mother, Mrs. Annie Sophia Elliott, and her grand Uncle Tuckness Sancho
  1. Miss Victoria Elliott departed on Sunday, February 25, 1945
  2. Mrs. Annie Sophia Elliott departed on Monday, September 13, 1948
  3. These two events transpired three years, six months and nineteen days apart/
  4. Annie Kathleen Elliott is not mentioned in both of the announcements. However, Tappin Johnson Elliott is listed in the announcements. Annie Kathleen Elliott departed on May 5, 1935 
  5. Tappin Johnson Elliott departed on June 8, 1938.
  6. Edward Elliott is said to be resident at Ann’s Grove. 
  7. Henry Elliott is listed as Stationmaster at Belfield Railway Station.

However, three years later only the employment of Sarah Sandy is mentioned. Now, this researcher believes Cecil Sandy and Cecily Sandy departed before Monday, September 13, 1948 and perhaps, even before Sunday, February 25, 1945. The thinking is, if Cecil Sandy and Cecily Sandy were alive; their names would have been listed in both announcements. This researcher also believes Benjamin Sandy and Mary Sandy departed before Tuckness Sancho did on September 13, is simply gut feelings –conjecture. Why would the immediate relatives of Tuckness Sancho request that New York and Trinidad & Tobago newspapers copy the announcement and not mention at least Mary Sandy? Therefore this researcher is convinced that Tuckness Sancho was the last known surviving child of Bentick Sancho and Mary Sarah Sancho. This researcher would dearly love to access published reports respecting the passing of Benjamin Sandy and Mary Sandy. This researcher believes the publications respecting the departure of Mary Sandy is likely to exhibit names of her siblings, and nieces and nephews which are of great consequence to this effort.  This Researcher would love to ascertain whether Benjamin Sandy was indeed a stationmaster at Enmore and elsewhere. This researcher would love the dates of the deaths of Benjamin Sandy and Mary Sandy. The remains of Benjamin Sandy and Mary Sandy are likely interred at either Golden Grove or Nabaclis. The feelings they are at Nabaclis in the vicinity of the tombs of Tappin Elliott and Annie Sophia Elliott. This researcher would love to ascertain whether Bourne Sancho, Swanton Sancho, Robert Johnson Sancho, Emily Callighan and Adelaide Luke are listed as relatives and the married name of the sister of Mary 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…

II Assistant Teacher in Cane Grove Anglican School as from 11th January, 1955.”  - Joseph H. Jones, Manager, Cane Grove Anglican School.
