He was probably also related to Joaquin and Joseph Farara, and Emmanuel Farara who came to St. Kitts as an indentured servant. The De Costa's,Da Silva's and Pereira's also came here from Madeira and some inter-married I believe. The various estate planter's on St. Kitts set money aside to return them to Madeira at the end of their indentures but they did not wish to leave because many of them had set up profitable businesses and this had become their home, some of the were still thriving in the 1940's and 50's. Many of their names changed due to spelling errors by the British clerks on St. Kitts, so you are now also looking at persons with the surname Fereira (this was possibly the original spelling) Ferrar, Farrara. There was and is also the De Freitas family who have now become Fraites and DeFraites.
