  • Sancho of Nabaclis
    Apr 5, 2005
      Highest Blessings!
      Firstly, please accept my very sincere thank you - for your most wonderful replies. let me very quickly add - I made the inquires based on memories of conversations I shared with my most beloved ancestor, Mrs. Muriel Ross (Miss Muriel Sancho, prior to January 29, 1943),  my older sibling Compton Ross, Aunt Dorothy Slayter, and childhood recollections. As I recall my mother insisted that Semples are her relatives, and I am positive this is possible by the blood lines of  her mother Rachel Campbell. The pages of the Who is who in British Guiana revealed  there is definitely a Campbell - Semple union, Sparendaam, East Coast Demerara. There's also a Bobb- Campbell union in Ann's Grove, East Coast, Demerara.
      What remains is this simple matter of linking the Campbells of where ever they are found to Campbell of Lancaster, East Coast Demerara.
      I do not know whether the possibilities exist that the named families are connected to Sancho, however, I am possitive they are all families who are related to the descendants of George E. Ross and Miss Muriel Sancho. My grand mother is descended from Semple, McPherson, Ross, among others of the West Coast Berbice. I do not know my grand mother's relatives - that's what I am attempting to learn.
      I heard of McPherson, I met one who was a Commissioned Officer in the GDF. I am thinking his name is Gladwin. I do not know of the Semples of Fyrish, and other parts of the Corentyne. I believe that all the Semples of Guyana are relatives. Concerning, Fyrish, my family resided there prior to my birth, and one of my siblings was born in that location - so it's special to me - I am also interested in learning of the Campbells, Sandys, Sanchos, Fingals , Ross, and Marks of Fyrish, Port Mourant, Rose Hall Town, on the Corentyne, Canje, New Amsterdam, other locations in Berbice, and indeed Guyana as a whole....
      Please indulge yourselves in data below - extracted from the Who is who in British Guiana, 1945 -1948 (Fourth Edition). I am currently in the Library flipping the pages of  British Guiana directory and almanack for the years 1883, 1890, 1898, and 1902 - feel free to ask me to look folks etc... I will be doing so for a few hours....
      Please refer my inquiries to those of your relatives who may very be able to enlighten me.....
