Carlota (1825)

Voyage Overview

The Brazilian Schooner, Carlota, left Bahia on 19 July 1825 and purchased 360 enslaved people at Ouidah (no date recorded). The captain, José Francisco da Costa, sailed the vessel, owned by José de Cerqueira Lima, back toward Brazil as intended, when it likely landed at São Salvador on 15 January 1826. Only 212 people survived the Middle Passage. For more information, see Map of 1825.
