FONCECA Family Tree

with links to British India.

(see FONSECA as well)

Fonseca Name Meaning: Spanish and Portuguese: habitational name from any of several places named for a spring that dried up during the summer months, from fonte seca ‘dry well’.

St Thomas the Apostle is said to have arrived in India in 54 A.D. Later, with the advent of the Portuguese, the French and the British in India, there was further Christian influence. In India, Christians are basically converts, although there are descendants of European settlers and Anglo-Indians. In Goa, which had long been a Portugese domain, Christians form the majority of the population there.

 

Various spellings were used in records relating to this family in Australia : Finsaker; Fensaker; Finsacres; Fonseed; Fouseca; and Fransica.

Fonceca as I see, is just a British way to write the (clearly defined) Portuguese surname Fonseca. Fonseca as well is a (composed) place surname, (Fonte + seca) or in archaic Portuguese form: Font'seca. Fonte in Portuguese means Fountain, and, Seca means Draught (by the season). Early time this surname was held, by descents to Garcia Rodrigues whom had granted land at Honra da Font'seca, Portugal. (Antenor Nascentes,II,116). The Coat of Arms to Fonseca is the same as granted to Coutinho and Tavares families because they all have the same origin. (Anuario Genealogico Latino,I,44;SB,II,70). Antonio C Weston.

The name could also have been derived from FONSCECA, and somewhere along the way the "S" was omitted, making it FONCECA. A search of passenger lists of European (English, Portuguese or Spanish) ships sailing to India in the 17-1800's will be required to trace the origin.

Hi Russel, I came across several other Fonceca's. The film is very faint in parts and difficult to read. I will list what I was able to decipher. If you let me have your snail mail address I will send you photocopies. I doubt if it will be all that useful as the quality of the printer at the Library is not very good, but you may be able to distinguish details my tired old eyes cannot pick up.   Gilbert Raymond 19/10/1999
