In the mid 1800's, three brothers left Madeira and emigrated to the island of St. Vincent in the Caribbean. Presumably, their goal was to seek their fortune in the New World, where many other Madeirans had emigrated subsequent to the emancipation of slaves in the British Colonies and the ensuing labor shortage.
This site is focused on the genealogy of those de Freitas brothers, and is intended for the private use of our extended family. It is not a site for use by those researching any other de Freitas family lines, nor is it a general resource for de Freitas research or Portuguese genealogy. A password is required for access.
