Nr. 1969 - Pero Gomes de Lisboa, 26 years old, presently Portuguese merchant in Amsterdam, formerly in Lisbon, makes the following statement at the request of Francisco Fernandes and Manuel Homem Vieira, Portuguese merchants in Amsterdam. In November or December 1615 the ship of skipper Luis Dorego sailed from Lisbon for Pernambuco with goods belonging to Manuel Gomes da Fonseca, Diogo Lopes d'Andrade, Manuel Fernandes Camarvila and other people in Lisbon and to Estevão de Silveira and Antonio Pinto Carnero, brother of Manuel Carnero, living in Madrid. The latter two sailed on the ship. Several months after its departure, he heard that he ship had arived in Santo Domingo, where the cargo was sold at a profit. From there the ship left for Sevilla with hides, sugar and money for the account of the said people and others. Shortly afterwards it was seized by a French captain called Le Livre. The skipper and some merchants, among whom Antonio Pinto Carnero, were beaten to death. Attempts to recover damages in France failed.En NOTARIAL RECORDS IN AMSTERDÃ RELATING TO THE PORTUGUESE JEWS.
