The Bicudos

The history of the Bicudo family begins in the paradise and beautiful Island of São Miguel, the largest of the islands of the Azores archipelago,which is part of the territory of Portugal. On several occasions the island was an important shopping center and starting point of many settlers who arrived in Brazil.

At a time of relative peace for the Jews, the Bicudos held bureaucratic positions in the Portuguese crown. This is the case of the well-known Sephardic patriarch Vicente Anes Bicudo,who was the crown clerk. Vicente married old Christian Mécia Nunes and had nine children. One of them, Matias Bicudo,was a spy of the kingdom, a kind of 16th-century Lusitanian James Bond.

The couple’s other children were Antônio Bicudo Carneiro (married to Isabel Rodrigues Velho), Jerônima Nunes (married to Pedro Afonso Caldeira), Isabel Nunes Bicudo (married to Pedro Alvares) and, Nuno Nunes Bicudo (married to Margarida Mendes Pereira). There is no marriage record of Guiomar Nunes Bicudo, Beatriz da Conceição Nunes Bicudo, Manuel Nunes Bicudo, Francisco Nunes Bicudo and Matias Bicudo.

The first member of the Bicudo family to arrive in Brazil was Antônio Bicudo,son of Vicente Anes Bicudo, ombudsman of the Captaincy of São Vicente (which encompassed the current territory of the state of São Paulo). Nine children who spread throughout Brazil, especially the South and Southeast of the country, were born from the marriage to Isabel Rodrigues Velho.
