This Spanish Brig, Segunda Teresa, left Havana on 20 December 1831 and purchased 460 enslaved people at Lagos by 14 March 1832. The captain and owner, Ramon Agulleyro, sailed the vessel toward Cuba when Captain Richard Meredith of the HMS Pelorus captured the vessel somewhere off the coast of West Africa.
