Dr. Robert Reid Kalley:  8 Sept 1809 - 17 Jan 1888
Religious Exiles from Madeira ca 1846-1854
This site is dedicated to the community of people researching Dr. Robert Reid Kalley's religious exiles from Madeira who settled primarily in Illinois, Trinidad, Antigua, St Kitts, Jamaica, and Demerara (British Guyana). The goal of this community is to share, collaborate, and preserve any/all related historical, genealogical, and cultural information and sources.


Jacksonville and Springfield share the unique experience of being home to the Portuguese Protestants who fled to Central Illinois in 1849 to escape religious persecution. The Morgan County Historical Society is celebrating this event with publication of a biography of Antonio de Mattos, pastor of the Portuguese Presbyterian congregations in both communities.

The author, David J. Langum, Sr., is the author of six other books including William M. Kunstler: the Most Hated Lawyer in America, the attorney who defended the “Chicago Seven.” He is currently a Research Professor at Cumberland School of Law, Samford University. Langum is a descendent of de Mattos.

TO ORDER THIS BOOK: Please send a check for $30US ($25 + $5 shipping) to David Langum, 821 Polk Street, Port Townsend, Washington 98368.
David is happy to inscribe the book to whomever is wished.
