      Dear Ms Gibson:
      I must assume you have searched familysearch. org the LDS genealogy
      web site. I tried it because Barbados was famous for maintaining
      records but I could not find any trace of a Richard Streete. If he
      was as prominent a citizen of Barbados as you suggest there must be
      some trace of him in Barbados so I would suggest that you find a
      researched in Barbados to start your search there. I am sure there
      are professional researchers there.
      I can understand your frustration because I am myself trying to
      trace the Odles from Barbados who emigrated to Guyana in the late
      19th century but with no luck.

      Ched. She had been born a free woman and was not an ex-slave. They,
      Ched and Annie had ten (10) children, nine of whom survived: - Julia

            Speaking of names, your surname is the same as mine and a cousin from Essequibo, named Amos Gibson who left for New York some years ago. Would you happen to have family from Essequibo?

            Your name seems to link to an old school friend of mine from Central High School in Georgetown.

            Dear Ms Gibson:
            I must assume you have searched familysearch. org the LDS genealogy
            web site. I tried it because Barbados was famous for maintaining
            records but I could not find any trace of a Richard Streete. If he
            was as prominent a citizen of Barbados as you suggest there must be
            some trace of him in Barbados so I would suggest that you find a
            researched in Barbados to start your search there. I am sure there
            are professional researchers there.
            I can understand your frustration because I am myself trying to
            trace the Odles from Barbados who emigrated to Guyana in the late
            19th century but with no luck.

            or around the mid eighteenth (18th) century - 1850 or 1851. Ched was
            of mixed race (black and white), he was raised by his father and his
            father's wife (not his mother). His father was an important man at
            the sugar plantation, either a plantation manager or an overseer.
            After his father's death in Barbados he came over to British Guiana,
            possibly because he was the only son in the family. Ched was
            apparently wealthy, one never knew if he worked. Ched then met ANNIE
            McDERBY, a British Guianese lady who was of mixed race also, like
            Ched. She had been born a free woman and was not an ex-slave. They,

            built two (2) houses at both ends of this lot and brought up his

            with his favourite daughter, Sis' Mary. This address on Prince

                Gibson is my married name, I was born Lynette Cummings.  I however have an Aunt who married a Wesley Gibson (deceased) and they all (that family) live in England - I do believe that they are related to the Gibsons from Essequibo.  As a matter of fact it seems as if all the Gibsons in Guyana are related in some way or the other.  Best regards.

                Dear Ms Gibson:
                I must assume you have searched familysearch. org the LDS genealogy
                web site. I tried it because Barbados was famous for maintaining
                records but I could not find any trace of a Richard Streete. If he
                was as prominent a citizen of Barbados as you suggest there must be
                some trace of him in Barbados so I would suggest that you find a
                researched in Barbados to start your search there. I am sure there
                are professional researchers there.
                I can understand your frustration because I am myself trying to
                trace the Odles from Barbados who emigrated to Guyana in the late
                19th century but with no luck.

                in British Guiana from Barbados. He came during the British take
                over of this country, from the Dutch, after slavery was abolished in
                or around the mid eighteenth (18th) century - 1850 or 1851. Ched was
                of mixed race (black and white), he was raised by his father and his
                father's wife (not his mother). His father was an important man at
                the sugar plantation, either a plantation manager or an overseer.
                After his father's death in Barbados he came over to British Guiana,
                possibly because he was the only son in the family. Ched was
                apparently wealthy, one never knew if he worked. Ched then met ANNIE
                McDERBY, a British Guianese lady who was of mixed race also, like
                Ched. She had been born a free woman and was not an ex-slave. They,
                Ched and Annie had ten (10) children, nine of whom survived: - Julia

                > Streete was apparently a wealthy man. The land deeds dated 1852
                showed that he owned the entire lot at 26 Prince William Street,
                Plaisance, East Coast Demerara, British Guiana. In July 1853 he
                built two (2) houses at both ends of this lot and brought up his
                family with Annie at his side. When Annie died, he continued to live
                with his favourite daughter, Sis' Mary. This address on Prince
                William Street was where most of Mother's children were born. The
                land was then turned over to his eldest grand-daughter, Rebecca
