About Bernardo Peres da Silva

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Bernardo Peres da Silva (October 15, 1775 — November 18, 1844) was a governor of Portuguese India. He was a Goan province born to be appointed as Governor of Portuguese India. He was also one of the first elected representatives in the Portuguese Parliament from its Indian colonies.

Early life Bernardo Peres da Silva was born in Neura Island in Goa to José Tomás de Vila Nova Peres and Mariana Veloso and was orphaned at a very young age. His uncle, Caetano Peres, was a priest at Rachol seminary, and took him under his care. He completed secondary education at Rachol. He graduated from Escola Médico-Cirúrgica de Goa (School of Medical Surgery of Goa), which was attached to the Royal Hospital at Panelim.

Medical practitioner After completing his education at the medical school, Peres was appointed as substitute professor in the medical school, having passed a competitive exam. When his teacher fell ill, Peres took up the job of teaching. During his term at the hospital, Peres opposed moves by the Viceroy, the Count of Rio Pardo, to streamline treatment available to patients. This made him popular with the people, but not with the viceroy. In 1820 he was dismissed from the Royal Hospital.

Political career The first insurrection In 1821, Portugal issued a royal decree accepting constitutionalism. Rogério de Faria, a Goan businessman in Bombay and a friend or relative of Peres,), sent a copy to Peres. The events in Portugal inspired the Goans to seek greater political liberty. The Portuguese Viceroy of Goa, the Count of Rio Pardo, did not hold elections immediately, preferring, instead to wait for instructions from the Government Council in Rio de Janeiro. Peres led a popular insurrection in Goa that overthrew and imprisoned the Viceroy. Peres was offered a position in the provisional government but he refused.
