I’m moving through the Pacheco side of my family tree. This post will be on the da Costa’s of Estrela, Ribeira Grande, Sao Miguel Island, Azores.

This line connects to the Ferreira/Ferreira Grota line that I previously covered. Descendant Ana de Jesus married Narciso Jose Ferreira Grota in 1787.

This surname follows maternal and paternal lines, just to be confusing like more Azorean ancestry. The earliest ancestor in this line is Anna da Costa. Anna is my 8th Great Grandmother. She was born ca. 1610, probably in Estrela. She married Manoel Moniz. They had at least one daughter, Beatriz da Costa. Beatriz married Domigo Lopes, 31 Jan 1662, in Estrela. Domingo was the son of Domingo Lopes and Anna Lopes.

This is the ancestry of Ana de Jesus to her ancestor, Anna da Costa.
