THE BREMNERS – Of Akyma-De Maria Elisabeth – Dmitri Allicock

THE BREMNERS

Of Akyma-De Maria Elisabeth

Their name was Bremner and their immediate ancestor was a Dutchman, who had been the post-holder at the Government post of Sebacabra, a hill on the right bank of the river about ninety miles from Georgetown.” Henry Kirke 1870.

 Nestled on the western shore of the Demerara, approximately seven miles south of Linden, is an unassuming place called Akyma, meaning Oh My!   Today, Akyma looks like any other location along the transparent brown Demerara River, covered with thick vegetation, dense screen of palms, evergreens of many varieties, tangled with creepers and other parasitic plants.
