Early Portuguese Immigrants in British Columbia
1849 and before the century was over many Portuguese mainly from the Azores and Madeira came to settle in British Columbia. Many of them played an important role in the early development of the province. The information that was gathered was mainly from quotes in books. I lost some of the sources but I am working to get evrything up to date. Here are some of the names of the first immigrants.
