Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of author names and terms that are mentioned in the book From Capture to Sale: The Portuguese Slave Trade to Spanish South America in the Early Seventeenth Century. The Portuguese slave trade focussed on Brazil, but during the early years of the slave trade exports to Spanish America exceeded those to Brazil. Although the Portuguese were involved in the Spanish American slave trade from the beginning, the peak of their participation came with the union of the Crowns of Spain and Portugal between 1580 and 1640. The first slaves to arrive in Spanish America accompanied expeditions of conquest as valued servants and auxiliaries and in the early decades of colonial rule individual Spaniards were granted licences to take small numbers of slaves from the Iberian Peninsula for their own personal service.

Keywords: colonial rule; Portuguese slave trade; Spaniards
