JAMES – St Lucia

Ray Smith. My wife's father Conrad Richmond was born in Castries St Lucia in May 1932 and I am trying to trace his ancestors. I've been told family reminiscences which refer to ancestors and family lines with surnames Richmond, De Guise, Hancock and James all from St Lucia dating back to the mid 1870s. What I'm hoping to find is some documentary or third-party evidence to confirm what I've got and to be able to trace the lines further back.

Key individuals I have some information on include:

Conrad Rudy Joseph RICHMOND b. 12 May 1932 Castries, St Lucia, d. 25 Mar 2008 Kings College Hospital, London (brother Denis Roland RICMOND and 2 sisters, Joyce RICHMOND and Charlotte Teresa Delia RICHMOND)

Parents;

Oliver Richard RICHMOND b. 4 Apr 1900 Castries, St Lucia, d. 6 Jul 1962 Jamaica. Accountant. Customs clerk to District Officer of Micoud and Dennery. Chief Clerk, Audit Office Castries, Prior to the 1948 fire, was acting Colonial Treasurer and sat on several governing bodies of the Government, the Legislative Council Executive and Finance Committees Retired from position of Examiner of Accounts in Grenada at age 49. Joined Geest Industries as their Chief Accountant or Auditor.
Gladys Lucie Thebelle HANCOCK b 6 Feb 1904 Soufriere, St Lucia, d. 15 Mar 1976 Baddesley Ensor, Warwickshire

Father’s Parents;

Hope someone can help.
