Deepest sympathy - how many sons did Everton have?

I believe only two, that the public was aware of.
May Andy RIP
David is the only West Indies international cricketer, I played with, we got our coaching at the junior level from Foffie Williams at Wesley Hall Primary school.

As a Rasta, he maybe living off the land and the sea.
I must say he has good memory, when he can come up to me in a restaurant, call me by name after 40 years, tells me his memory is still good.

Andy maybe was a better batsman than David, When the Aussie school boys toured the WI Andy was the best bajan bat, he scored an attractive 80 against Lillee.

He played for Foundation, a excellent u16 player, a couple years behind me, maybe he was ahead of the Fuzzy.

RIP Andy.

I knew very little of Andy, was not surprise when David played for Barbados and the West Indies.
Guys like Richard Stoute and others that know David, will tell you he earned his selection.

Nice interview, As I said before, Andy was a good batsman, maybe presure of being Weekes' son got to him. Peter and John were good swimmers as well as footballers.

What happened to David son? he was also a promising wicketkeeper batsman.
David did not had the pressure of being Sir Everton son, it was not something he talked about.
I cannot remember him acknowledging, he was Sir Everton son.
Was David a product of Richmond?

Rick Hoyte was David's son, Browne replaced him as Bim wk .I assume that you played with David

I met David at Wesley Hall Primary school during a coaching session, a number of students from St. Matthews, St.Giles, Montgomery, Bay Primary, Richmonds and a few other schools, attended the coaching clinics on Saturday mornings.

Ricky toured with the A team to SA sometime mid/late 90s

Trying to remember which secondary school he would have attended.

On another note this was my favourite Sandpebbles song.

he attended Foundation school; I don't recall him touring with the A team.

Think that might have been the 1st tune I heard from them, although I didn't know it was them at the time.

I should still have this 45, actually if you see a YT video of this playing on a turntable, that's my upload

Question for Bajans: Why is it so common for many Bajan males to not carry their father’s last name?

seaegg99 2022-05-14 14:12:58 

In reply to FanAttick

When Father run from responsibilities. Mother will always be there.

culpepperboy 2022-05-14 14:37:44 

In reply to seaegg99

Not always the case. If the parents are unmarried and the mother registers the birth, she decides the last name.

openning 2022-05-14 15:03:07 

In reply to FanAttick
It was the norm for children of unmarried parents, to carry their mother surname.
I don't know the reason why, some people actually believe there is a difference between a child of a married couple and a deputy.
seaegg99: As a country boy, many men you hear about hiding in the cane fields, was hiding from paying cock taxes.

There was differences with DOB and the registration. My mom always celebrated her birthday on March 30 which was the registration date, her DOB was March 20, it was only on her 100th birthday, that we had to follow the protocol and celebrate it on her listed DOB.

I had to learn from my Yard brothers that a women having a number of relationships and numerous children, the fathers names will be the children surnames.

FanAttick 2022-05-14 20:12:53 

In reply to openning

Thanks for the clarification..yes in Yard ..the children will always bear their father’s name (real or not)
