Biography

U.S. Southern Colonies Project logo
Rebecca De Veiga was a Georgia colonist.

Rebecca was born around 1678. She married Dr. Samuel Nunez in 1699 [1][2]and they immigrated to the colony of Georgia in North America in 1733.[3] She died after 1750. [4][5]One source indicates she (listed as "Rachel") may have died in the Carolinas, where they fled at one point for fear of the Spaniards moving up from Florida. [6] Another account of the move states: "The War of Jenkins’ Ear sparked fears of Spanish invasions, and Nunes and his fellow settlers, recalling the horrors of the Spanish and Portuguese Inquisition, fled the colony. Nunes relocated to New York, where his daughter lived. Though it not known what happened to Nunes later, family tradition supports the claim that he returned to live in Savannah."[7]
