As mentioned in my recent Guilherme Jaime and Agatha De Freitas post, my mother is trying to find out more about is her Aunt Agatha Psailer (see more here). She’s somehow connected with my mother’s grandmother Mary Agnes (Polly) Walker of Ayneham Towers and married a William de Freitas, Judge, of British Guyana. I’d already found an announcement for the death in 1938 of Guilherme Jaime, dearly beloved husband of Agatha De Freitas, and King’s Counsel, of British Guiana.
Anyway, Polly had a brother called Stanislaus Walker. I think he is the same person as the Stanislaus Walker, of the British. Guiana Civil Service, who I found listed in the The Guyana / British Guiana Genealogical Society records. Stanislaus married an Eveline Marie Pereira in 1896 at the Catholic Cathedral of Brickdam, Georgetown. She was the only surviving daughter of the late Dr Pereira of the government medical service.
That’s not the direct connection but it does make a possible link with the Catholic Walkers to British Guiana. I’m also pretty certain that Mary Georgina Walker (sister of Mary Agnes and Stanislaus) married a Luigi Psaila (rather than Psailer) in 1878. I found the name Luigi Psaila cropping up in various British Guiana documents on Google.
So I’m making an educated guess that the Agatha who married (William) Guilherme Jaime De Freitas (King’s Counsel, of British Guiana) was the daughter of Luigi Psaila and Mary Georgina Walker. This would make Agatha a first cousin of my grandmother Mue. It’s probably about as far as I can get with this family mystery, not least because it’s getting a bit far from the direct ancestors.
