Gomes Portellas/Fernandes


I'm trying to trace my great-grandfather (Joao Gomes Portellas, died approx 1930) and my great-grandmother (Rosa Fernandes, died in 1957 in Cape Town, South Africa). They lived in Faja d'Oveilho, Madiera before moving to Cape Town in approx 1918. Rosa apparently owned property in Funchal, Porta (sp?).

They had five children, John, Matilda, Manuel, Mary and Anthony. My grandfather was Manuel James, known as "Jimmy", born in 1916.

Any help would be appreciated.
