The Brazilian Schooner, Tentadora, left Rio de Janeiro on 17 August 1829 and purchased 432 enslaved people at Lagos by 31 October 1829. The captain, Inácio Manoel de Oliveira, sailed the vessel toward Brazil when Captain Francis Augustus Collier of the HMS Sybille captured the vessel somewhere off the coast of West Africa.
