Lindo Family

Antone Pereira Lindo and Maria Lindo

Antone and Maria Lindo

The LINDO'S were Sephardic Jews of Spanish Portugal origin.

Our branch is of the Portugal origin.

The name Lindo means “pure” or “handsome”, I would love to know where they first settled, since most families took surnames from the cities where they settled.

During the Spanish Inquisition, many were tortured and 200,000 Jews, fled to other Countries. The ones that stayed had to convert.

Some of my questions are:

1. What happened to the Lindo's who stayed in Portugal?
I ask this because our records show our Antone Pereira Lindo as being born in the Azores.
2. Did any Lindo return to Portugal after leaving?
3. If they stayed, did they change their names?
The question about changinging their names is because our ancestor Antone Lindo also went by the name Antone Perreira.
4. How many Lindo's converted?
This question is based on the knowledge that our branch of Lindo's are Catholic.

Lindo Facts:
Alexander Lindo signed the re-settlement papers with Oliver Cromwell---when they returned to England 1600's

The Lindo's were first members of Lloyds and propped up Bank of England--many are buried in Mile End Cemetery in London.

They were also named in Parliament for Slave Trading.

Princes William and Harry were born in The Lindo Wing of a London Hospital.

It is my belief that our Lindo family are descendants of Alexander Lindo (son of Isaac (Antonio) Lindo) and Rachel Pereira, daughter of Elisah Pereira.

Pereira (Perry), is a family name that you will find throughout  the generations of Lindo's.

 Pereira is a common surname in the Portuguese and Galician as well as Sephardic languages, namely in Portugal, Galicia, Brazil and other regions of the former Portuguese Empire.

It was originally a noble Christian toponym of the Middle Ages, taken from the feudal possession of Pereira, Portugal, which in Portuguese means 'pear tree'.

The name also exists in variations such as PereyraPereraPereroPereiroPereirosPereyroPereyrosDo PereiroDo PereyroPereire, and others. In Portugal there are some families with variations of the name although Pereira is by far the most common. The variants of this name are more commonly found in other countries such as SpainTrinidad and Tobagoand Sri LankaPereire, for example, is a French variant. Many Portuguese immigrants to the United States, especially Massachusetts, chose to "Americanize" their surname to Perry.


Antone Pereira Lindo---AKA: Antonio Lindo Pereira

Antone Pereira Lindo, born September 27, 1859 in the Azores (according to his death certificate). He died: October 26, 1929, in Oakland, CA. and is buried: in Hayward, CA.

Antone arrived in Hawaii on the SS Bellrock in 1883.

The confusing issue to me is the marriage certificate showing Antone Pereira Lindo wedding Maria Julia Pereira on November 26, 1946. However the 1883 SS Bellrocks passenger list shows Antone Pereira and Maria Julia Pereira as being married. My question is: If Antone was married twice, why did both wives have the same name? Or did he marry Maria Julia twice? Did they remarry before leaving for California?
I do know that some of the Portuguese, after arriving in Hawaii, went before the Secretary of the Interior Department for the purpose of obtaining the necessary documents of Holy Matrimony.
