Novo Brilhante (1825)

Voyage Overview

The Portuguese Brig, Novo Brilhante, left Bahia on 26 September 1824 and purchased 273 enslaved people at Badagry (no date recorded). The captain, Antônio Alves da Silva Porto, sailed the vessel back toward Brazil as intended, when it likely landed at São Salvador in 1824. Only 250 people survived the Middle Passage.
