De Ponte Ribeiro Family or related..

edited December 1969 in Family and Friends
Hi there...

I have been researching my family name through the Madeira Arquivo Regionale, and I can trace the surname "De Ponte Ribeiro" back to 1786 using the Marriages database:

Francisco de Ponte Ribeiro married Antónia Caldeira in Ponta do Pargo in 1786
Francisco de Ponte Ribeiro married Josefa Maria Luís in Ponta do Pargo in 1810
Francisco de Ponte Ribeiro married Maria Antónia in Ponta do Pargo 1820
Francisco de Ponte Ribeiro married Antónia de Jesus in Ponta do Pargo 1833
António de Ponte Ribeiro married Josefa de Gouveia in Ponta do Pargo 1853
António de Ponte Ribeiro married Maria Justina de Sousa in Ponta do Pargo 1858 Manuel de Ponte Ribeiro married Antónia Augusta de Jesus in Ponta do Pargo 1881
Manuel de Ponte Ribeiro married Angelina Da Silva in Ponta do Pargo somewhere in 1900 or thereabout..

The last entry being my great grandparents.

These seem like the ONLY entries for "de ponte ribeiro" and I was wondering if anyone has any lineage to any of the above, or perhaps know how the line originated?

My father is Joaquim de Ponte Ribeiro. He has 2 brothers, Joao (John), Manuel and 1 sister, Maria de Ponte Ribeiro, (who then married, but dont know the surname).
Their parents were Manuel Ponte Ribeiro and Angelina Da Silva. (I assume that her name would then become "Angelina Da Silva Ribeiro")
