I am looking for information on the De Simas lineage.
My great great great Grandads name was Jose Leal De Simas. I believe he was born in 1836 and was originally from Porto in Portugal. I have been told his family owned vineyards there. I have also been told he ran away as a teenager and ended up NZ where he married an Emma Jane Rooks.
I am looking for any information on Jose Leal De Simas parents& family.
If anyone can help me, it would be most appreciated.
