Caro João Alarcão and others interested,

If anyone on the list does research in Viana do Castelo, I would like to trade favors and have someone find this 1783 baptism of D. Bárbara, dau. of Duarte Guilherme Allen and D. Joana. I don't know if there are many freguesias in Viana do Castelo, but if so, it might have been the matriz. I looked at my references and see there is a freguesia, a concelho and the district by this name. Hopefully, she was baptized in the freguesia by that name.

MAZZA seems like maybe it's Italian. Anyone know?

I see that there is no baptism information or Domingos, nor marriage information for his parents.

Caro Fernando, if you have some spare time, perhaps you can look again at the Ferreira Pinto Basto book and see if more is known about these ancestors? Also, pages 174 and 176 are missing the edge and so much of the text is missing. If it is possible to scan those two pages and attach as a jpg, it would be great.

It seems Abadim records (on film by the LDS) would allow more generations to be discovered, which include:
Batismos, Casamentos, Óbitos 1614-1656 (desordenado)
Batismos, Casamentos, Óbitos 1654-1698
Batismos 1698-1725
Batismos 1725-1830
Casamentos 1698-1750
Óbitos 1698-1769
Óbitos 1769-1847

Pg. 173 of the book says he "Nasceu no Porto, na rua dos Ferradores, freguesia de Santo Ildefonso, a 6 de Janeiro de 1805."

>parents of his wife Richard and Jeronima Nicholson.

The same page, 173, calls his mother "Jemima" instead of Jeronima. I think it must be Jemima, since I doubt someone in England would have the name Jeronima.

That's very interesting. It gives me a reason to learn the ancestors of D. Pedro I of Brasil. Does anyone have a handy reference which lists his ancestors?

This concubine of D. Pedro I is a descendant of Terceira. I think she is the ancestor or sister of the ancestor of one of Chico Doria's people. I still haven't figured out that line (because of the illegitimacy in her ancestors).

I wonder if some reference lists the German and Italian ancestors of these Schindler and Shearman ladies. I am just curious. They are not my focus here.

I checked my records and can't find any tia Cunha . I do know this:
Capitão João STREET de ARRIAGA BRUM e CUNHA & Coronel Guilherme STREET ARRIAGA BRUM SILVEIRA e CUNHA were brothers. Since both used CUNHA and were the first in the family do so, the aunt must be the sister of one of their parents. Their parents were:
Guilherme STREET & Bárbara Catarina Naudin de ARRIAGA, as you stated (married 1745).

This aunt could really be the wife of one of the uncles and I get the feeling that it comes from the maternal side of their mother Bárbara. But I don't have any record of her brothers marrying someone named Cunha. Her brother Dezembargador Miguel de ARRIAGA BRUM da SILVEIRA married but had no descendants and he died in Lisboa in 1773. His wife was "D. Marianna Joaquina Apollonia de Vilhena Coutinho." Maybe she was aka Cunha.

On their paternal side, they had an aunt named Luzia Teresa. I don't know if her ancestors were Cunha. They had two other uncles who might have married, but I don't know.

So if there is some reference which clearly identifies this tia Cunha, I would be interested.

Is this article in relation to the above tia Cunha?

Um abraço,
