San Rafael (1822)

Voyage Overview

The Spanish Schooner, San Rafael, left Havana on 19 February 1822 and purchased 144 enslaved people at Ouidah by 27 August 1822. The captain, Francisco Chinchureta, sailed the vessel back toward Brazil when a British warship captured the vessel at an unspecified location off the coast of Africa. Although this ship went before the British and Spanish Court of Mixed Commission, Sierra Leone, it was restored and the vessel, owned by [sic] Manzanal, reached Havana on 16 November 1822.
