British Guiana Colonists is an
index of 18th and 19th century residents of the colonies of Berbice, Demerara, and Essequebo ... compiled and maintained by Tikwis Begbie from a wide variety of sources.
On its British Guiana Colonists Index "C" page (from which the above quote comes) it has an entry that is of interest to me:
All the other CHICHESTER entries there appear to be closely related to my 4th great grandfather Robert Chichester (and can be found in other questions on this site):
- CHICHESTER, James was his nephew (son of his brother Giles)
- CHICHESTER, Jared was his son
- CHICHESTER, Maria Dorothea was his daughter-in-law (wife of his son Jared)
- CHICHESTER, Thomas was his son
- CHICHESTER, William was his brother
However, I have no evidence that Robert himself ever visited British Guiana.
Does anyone know the source for the name "CHICHESTER, Robert" appearing in this index?
If I can track that, then maybe I can establish his identity as being that of my ancestor, or of another Robert Chichester.
I have been unable to find contact information for the author of the site (Tikwis Begbie), and so a simple email is not yet possible. I have searched Guyana Colonial Newspapers without success.
