Correspondence between Thomas Benbow Philips and Randal Callander Esquire

Correspondence with Randal Callander Esquire from a manuscript collection kept by Thomas Benbow Philips. Thomas Benbow Phillips (1829 - 1915) pioneer of the Welsh settlement in Brazil between 1850-1854. T. B Phillips was born February 14, 1829 in London and grew up in Manchester. He published an advertisement in January 1850 to promote colonization in Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. In September 1850, he led the first Welsh settlers on board the Irene for Rio Grande do Sul. Although about 100 had moved to Nova Cambria by 1852 and that the situation was promising as an enterprise, by October 1854 the colony has all but disappeared. Following the death of his wife, Benbow Phillips moved to Patagonia in 1872.
