I am the eldest granddaughter of Edward Correia of Georgetown Guyana, decended from his second wife Mari/Marie/Mary Nunes, His first wife was a cousin of hers. I understand that he had several brothers and they were involved in various business interests in Guyana and the Caribean Islands namely Trinadad and Barbadoes, that I know of. I know that there are numerous cousins still in Guyana, though my branch of the family left sometime during the early 60's at the time of the troubles. Edward died relatively young though the life span in the Guianas is the mid forties. His widow went to England with her only Son, Gerald, daughter Jean and son-in-law, from there they immigrated to Canada ending up in Toronto and area. I know that the Corriea family Gathers from around North America in Toronto every August. There are no relatives descended through Marie with the Corriea name as my uncle never had children. The rest of us are children of the daughters the two eldest marrying a yorkshireman (my father) and a Scotsman, the other two daughters married in to prolific Guyanese Families who also emigrated to Canada at the time of the troubles. My Grandfather Edward had a Son Stanislaus by his first marriage I have no idea if he had any sons, though he apparently had 2 or more daughters. My mum says that the family came to Guyana via Lisbon, Maderia and the Azores. I would be interested in Knowing more about the circumstances of this progression to the New World. Our Family has lost its portuguese roots and language in less than two generations, they consider themselves to be Guyanese-Canadians for the most part. As for me I am considered English through my father, Scottish through place of birth, Canadian by adoption by various communities. I myself consider myself both an English citizen and a Canadian citizen. None of my children and few of my cousins look the least like portugese ancestry. Mind you My Grandfather Edwards bright blue eyes and wide round jaw and face look nothing portugese either in fact while his two eldest daughter look spanish with their black hair and white skin the younger two look more east Indian that anything else with one aunts hair seemingly black but glowing deep auburn in the sunlight and dark toned skin led my grandmother to deny that she could possibly be her child, Though as she grew older it was quite obvious to others that she strongly resembled my grandmother!
