Still looking for anything on the YOUDS family from Liverpool in Bahia.
John YOUDS (1769-1846) lived there prior to 1837, bought a house in 1824,
was a chandler and probably also a slave trader.
John had 3 sons and 2 daughters:
Henry YOUDS (1813-1849) and James YOUDS (1805-1858),
both businessmen born and died in Liverpool, are recorded as having lived part of their
lives in Bahia.
John YOUDS, born abt 1824 in Bahia, mother Narciza GANTOIS, was
employed by Gantois & Pailhet, rua d’Alfandega 93 (slave dealers) in 1844, when
he was investigated by the British for his involvement with the slave ship 'Sooy'.
As he was considered to be a Brazilian national he was not prosecuted.
Nothing further is known about him, he probably remained in Brazil.
Adele Elizabeth YOUDS (abt 1826-1872) was born in Bahia, she married Charles James
BENSON in Bahia in 1851, she died in Stretford.
Julia YOUDS was born 1830 in Bahia, she married Ferdinand HERRMANN.
Any further info would be greatly appreciated.
