From Franklin, C.B. "An 87-year Reminiscence: Flight of the Portuguese from Madeira in 1846." An address delivered at St. Ann's Church of Scotland, Port-of-Spain, 17th September 1933.

The following is a list of some of the earliest Portuguese Presbyterian refugees in Trinidad. This list gives the names of some members of the St. Ann's Church of Scotland whose contributions to a Patriotic Fund were collected by the Reverend Mr. Henrique Vieira. It was recorded in the Trinidad Royal Gazette (2 May 1855, 9 years after the arrival of the first refugees 1846, and 1 year after the church was built), and republished by C.B. Franklin in 1933.
