About Cincinnatus Fabian D'Abreo

Cincinatus Fabian D’Abreu was born in Goa , Saligao in 1862, the son of Manuel D’Abreu who had first set foot in Sind in 1846, three years after the conquest of that province by the British.

Cincinatus started his education at St. Patrick’s High School, Karachi, He had however to discontinue his education at the age of 16, and seek for employment to earn his livelihood due to the unfortunate death of his father. He was first employed by the Civil and Military Gazette Press as a clerk and later joined the well known English business establishment of Messrs. Forbes, Forbes and Campbell, dabbling in the Import-Exchange business. In 1889 at the age of 27 he joined the Sind Commissioner’s office as an ordinary clerk and in 1895 he rose to the post of Assistant Commissioner of Sind and soon after that to the Collector of Sukkur at which post he was responsible for the design of a waterworks system for Karachi.

He retired from British Government service in 1917, after a brilliant service of 28 years,. He then found the Indian Life Assurance Co. . He was simultaneously the Vice President of the Sind Land Owner’s Association and during this period helped to acquire land and founded the famous “Cincinatus Township” which was started by Latin Britto the Uncle in law of his brothers Felix and Adolf.(who married two sisters)Owing to Cincinatus Abreu, a number of people from Saligao subsequently migrated to Sind and settled at Karachi and have done well in life for themselves in that country like the Vazes of Donvaddo, DeMellos and Sequeiras of Sonarbatt and Sequeiravaddo and the Saldanhas of De Mello Vaddo etc.

Cincinatus' father Manuel D’Abreu could be considered one of the Saligao pioneers of Sind who opened that country for later batches of our village people as well as the people of other villages.
