Looking for information on HAYNES family from British Guiana/Barbados/England

Query by wendyl

My mother was born in Georgetown in 1927. Her parents were Charles Bird Haynes & Elise (nee Texeira). Charles worked at the Daily Argosy most of his adult life & was popularly known as "Cashier Haynes". He was killed by a car in April 1951 in Georgetown. He had definite family connections in Barbados - though seemed to be at odds with the family there? His father was a Captain E S Haynes who was a river pilot for Sprostons. Charles had 3 other siblings - Evelyn, Edwin & Isabel. Edwin was district commissioner of the Rupununi. His 2 sisters never married. If anyone has any information on the Haynes family I would love to hear from them. They also had connections with the Harrogate area in North Yorkshire, England. I've no idea why my Haynes family came to be in BG from Barbados & I've not been able to find anything out beyond my great grandfather Capt E(Edwin?)S Haynes. I don't know his wife's name - my mother seems to think her surname may have been Allison & that she was from Yorkshire. E S Haynes may have been born in Barbados but I'm not sure. If anyone can help in any way please do contact me.
