The Portuguese Brig, Hosse, left Bahia (no date recorded) and purchased 182 enslaved people at Ouidah by 23 March 1829. The captain, Benito Horrent, sailed the vessel, owned by Atkin Fernandez and Andrés Souza, toward Brazil when Captain Francis Augustus Collier of the HMS Sybille captured the vessel somewhere off the coast of West Africa. The British and Portuguese Court of Mixed Commission, Sierra Leone condemned this vessel and registered 169 Liberated Africans by 24 June 1829. For more information, see Map of 1829.
