RICHARDSON, Victoria Eudora - Anguilla

I am looking for assistance to find the parents of my great grandmother, Victoria Eudora Richardson. Victoria was born in 1882 in Long Ground, Anguilla.

Have you considered your great grandmother could have been born on St. Martin/Sint Maarten?

There is a Victoria Udare Richardson born 27 March 1877 Philipsburg, Sint Maarten, to a Jacob Adolphus Richardson (1851-1936) and Mary Elizabeth Warner (1846-1912).

Her siblings were Catherine Vernetia, Jacob Aretos, Elizabeth Mariean, Olive Usile.

Thank you Badminton. My mother always said that her grandmother Victoria was born in Long Ground, Anguilla so I never even considered that she was not.

I did some more searching of Anguilla baptism records for 1882, the year that my great grandmother Victoria was born, and I came across a record that is possibly hers. Her middle name was Eudora, but on this record it looks like Fedora.

Her parents' names are a bit hard to make out though so I am hoping that someone can help me decipher what it is. I'm also not sure if the name at the bottom is her mother's middle name or her father's first name. The first name is definitely Catherine, but I'm not sure what the name beneath it is. Any thoughts? The surname in the other column is Gumbs.

This is the Gumbs line you are looking at: The names are Catherine and Blucher Gumbs born 1805 - her parents.
I cannot guarantee its accuracy.

There is a possibility of there being another Blucher Gumbs as he was old when he fathered some of his children but I can only find a Blucher Gumbs, son of the John Phoenix Gumbs (son of Blucher Gumbs born 1805).

There are Deeds mentioning the land belonging to Blucher Gumbs "adjoining those of George Thomas Hawley in Saint Eustatia Valley Estate". Anguilla Deeds No. 532 and 848.
