Voyage Overview

The Brazilian Schooner, Não Lendia, left Pernambuco on 18 September 1829 and purchased 184 enslaved people at Lagos by 4 December 1829. The captain, Pedro José de Uraga, sailed the vessel, owned by Joaquim José de Oliveira, toward Brazil when Captain Edward Webb of the HMS Medina captured the vessel somewhere off the coast of West Africa. The British and Brazilian Court of Mixed Commission, Sierra Leone condemned this vessel and registered 159 Liberated Africans by 1 May 1830. For more information, see Map of 1829.
