Iberia (1826)

Voyage Overview

The Portuguese Schooner, Iberia, left Havana on 16 July 1825 and purchased an unknown number of enslaved people at Lagos by 27 December 1825. The captain, Andres Insua, sailed the vessel toward Cuba when Captain George Wickens Wills of the HMS Brazen captured the vessel somewhere off the coast of West Africa. The British and Spanish Court of Mixed Commission, Sierra Leone condemned this vessel and registered 328 people by 21 March 1826.
