I took a brief hiatus from Surname Saturday. I’m continuing through my Azorean maternal roots. The last entry I did was on Pacheco de Resendes of Maia. Today, I will post about the Costa Carneiro’s of Maia.
The first person of this surname in my tree is Josefa Costa Carneiro. She was my 6th great grandmother. She was also my 6th cousin 9 times removed. How do you like them cross circuits? LOL That’s what happens when a family lives in one place for many generations. They become related to themselves.
Josefa was born ca 1700 in Maia, Ribeira Grande, Sao Miguel Island, Azores. Her parents were Tomaz da Costa Carneiro and Ana de Souza, both of Maia. They were married 18 Jun 1704 in Maia. Tomaz was also married to Maria do Couto, the daughter of Manoel Correia and Maria do Couto.
Josefa married Manoel Pacheco de Resendes 11 Feb 1727 in Maia. Manoel was the son of Jordao de Souza and Francisca de Resendes Tavares. So far, I only have one child for Josefa and Manoel, a son also named Manoel Pacheco de Resendes.
This line goes back to Josefa’s 7th great grandparents. The last ancestor is my 15th great grandparent. As with many Azorean lines, most of the older ancestors have different surnames. The surnames weren’t always carried forward. In fact, it seems, they enjoyed confusing me by choosing surnames out of thin air (or so it seems.) Because of this reason, I’ve decided to list all generations here rather than write up several smaller posts.
