Caridade (1825)

Voyage Overview

The Brazilian Sumaca, Caridade, left Bahia on 19 May 1824 and purchased 334 enslaved people at Ouidah (no date recorded). The captain, José dos Santos Ferreira, sailed the vessel, owned by Vicente de Paula e Silva, back toward Brazil as intended, when it likely landed at São Salvador on 22 September 1825. Only 303 people survived the Middle Passage. For more information, see Map of 1825.
