The Brazilian Brig, Carolina, left Rio de Janeiro in 1828 and purchased 420 enslaved people at Lagos by 19 February 1829. The captain, Miguel José Nunes, sailed the vessel toward Brazil when Captain Francis Augustus Collier of the HMS Sybille captured the vessel somewhere off the coast of West Africa. The British and Brazilian Court of Mixed Commission, Sierra Leone condemned this vessel and registered 397 Liberated Africans by 13 March 1829. For more information, see Map of 1829.
