Voyage Overview

The Portuguese brig, Atrevido, left Brazil on 4 November 1834 and purchased 500 enslaved people at Ouidah by 27 July 1834. The captain and owner, João Garcia, sailed the vessel toward Brazil when Henry Huntley of the HMS Lynx 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 482 Liberated Africans by 1 January 1835. For more information, see Map of 1834.
