de Caires

edited December 1969 in Family and Friends

My great grand father was Manoel de Caires b abt 1850 d abt 1910 he lived in then British Guiana now Guyana.
I don't know if he was born in B.G. or in Madeira?
He married Leopoldina D'Andrade in 1850 she died 23rd June 1921 she was 75 years old.
I would like any information about him and his family and how they came to British Guiana and his life there and where he was from in Madeira.
Also about great grandmother Leopoldina D'Andrade and how her family came to British Guiana.
He had a brother Joseph S. deCaires b 1880 who went to Venezuela. Does anyone know of Joseph's life in Venezuela?

Thanks so much Maggie.
