Nova Viagem (1825)

Voyage Overview

The Portuguese Cutter, Novo Viagem, left Bahia on 13 October 1824 and purchased 119 enslaved people at Lagos (no date recorded). The captain, José Ramos Gomes, sailed the vessel, owned by Vicente de Silva, back toward Brazil as intended, when it likely landed at São Salvador in 1825. Only 100 people survived the Middle Passage. For more information, see Map of 1825.
