Brief History
S.E.S. Museum Officer Photographs
An Extensive History of S.E.S.
When Joao Rodrigues Cabrillo sailed into San Diego Bay on September 18, 1542, the history of the Portuguese in California began. The Portuguese people have long had a part in the history of California and of the City and County of Santa Clara. At one time they constituted 70 per cent of the Santa Clara population and have always played an important part in the forming of the community. Many Portuguese came to California in 1849, as excited by recent gold discoveries as the thousands of other 49ers who poured into the State. Mission San Jose had Portuguese settlers in the 1850's and some of them drifted down to settle in Santa Clara. After the 1849 Gold Rush, it was mainly in places like Newark, San Leandro, San Jose and Santa Clara that the Portuguese settled down to a life of farming and dairying. Prior to 1908, the Azores constituted the main source of Portuguese immigration. Mass immigration our of Portugal began in the 1870s. In the decade 1861-70 only 2,658 came over from Portugal, in contrast to 14,083 who immigrated into the U.S. from 1871 to 1880. The settlers were farmers and sea faring folk. They started farms and dairies and worked in vineyards. The early Portuguese settlers, preserving a dedicated interest in the land of their birth, started many fraternal organizations. One of these, the Sociedade do Espirito Santo (S.E.S.) Was founded in Santa Clara on December 16, 1895. The Society sponsored the annual celebration in honor of the Holy Ghost. The celebration dates back to the 13th century, when Portuguese Queen St. Isabel offered prayers to the Holy Ghost, seeking an end to a raging gamine and promising to build a church in His honor if the famine were to end. This celebration was held in Santa Clara yearly until 1959 and was known as the greatest of its kind among the Portuguese in California.

Victoria County Biographies
Brief Biographies of Past and Present Personalities Condensed sketches of many men of Victoria county (by Watson Kirkconnell, M.A.) Victoria county is as large as ancient Judea and larger than Attica. Remembrance of that fact and the marvelous achievements of the Jews and Athenians should give us a non-parochial perspective in which to view the modest record of our own race and locality. There follows, below, a list of 147 brief biographies representative of the county's citizens during the past century. There are doubtless flagrant errors of omission and judgment. For the former, lack of time is responsible; for the latter, the author. None of the persons sketched has been approached in any way, and the record (based on press and similar sources) therefore lacks the invalidation of cash subscription, on which all modern manuals of current biography are based. The first impression given by the list is that the native-born are few but eminent. Fewer than one-fifth have been born in Victoria county, but most of that minority have been far more distinguished, on the whole than nearly all of these who removed here from elsewhere. In the academic world we have the records of Edward Kylie, Frederick Smale, John F. McLaughlin and R.J. McLaughlin. Dr. Alexander Ferguson and Dr. Robert Curts reached the very foremost rank in surgery. Pat Burns and Sir William McKenzie have excelled in the world of finance. John Campbell and Samuel Cornell have left their record in scientific husbandry. W.A. Sherwood was an artist of note. F.P. McEvay and Michael Spratt became Roman Catholic Archbishops. Few of the county's "foreign-born" citizens measure up to the these "native born."

Brief Biographies from the Jackson/Van Buren Era (S):
Say, Thomas 1787 - 1834 :
Entomologist and conchologist. Traveled extensively through North America and published several important works. Came to Robert Owen 's New Harmony community, where he died in 1834.
Schuyler, Philip John 1733 - 1804:
Officer in the French and Indian War, and Maj.

His daughter Elizabeth married Alexander Hamilton , and he was very helpful in Hamilton's career; daugter Margaret married Stephen Van Rensselaer
Scott, Sir Walter (1771 - 1832):
Produced an avalanche of romantic historical novels. Probably Jacksonian America's favorite novelist. Beloved by southern planters (horses named Rob Roy) were not uncommon, and New England transcendentalists ( Bronson Alcott kept a bust of Scott - the only modern so honored - in his experimental grade school that was run on transcendentalist principles).
