Timeline of Dona Francesca de Resendes, 1716-1762

[Fearless Females-Women’s History Month, March 23rd: A Timeline for a female ancestor]

My timeline is for one of my Azorean ancestors, Dona Francesca de Resendes, who lived from 1716-1762.  The prompt recommended using ourtimelines.com to generate the timeline so I thought I would give it a try.

My ancestor came from the village of Maia in Ribeira Grande on the island of Sao Miguel. She was most likely illiterate. I wonder how many of the events that happened during her lifetime she even knew about?
