English Brazilian (Portuguese: Anglo-brasileiro) is a Brazilian person of full, partial, or predominantly English ancestry, or an English-born person residing in Brazil.

History[edit]

Colonial era economic influences and the Anglo-Portuguese alliance, led to the settlement of English merchants, and others in Brazil. After the Brazilian independence, Britain was the Brazil's main commercial partner; Britain financed part of the Brazil's industrialization, building railroads, including the São Paulo Railway (SPR).

In the 1920 Republican Census, there were 9637 "Englishmen" in Brazil (probably, all British citizens were counted as "Englishmen"). The states with the majority of English origin were:

  1. São Paulo (2 198),
  2. Federal District - which was the Rio de Janeiro city - (2 057),
  3. Minas Gerais (1 709) and
  4. Pernambuco (1 123).[1]

Brazilian cities settled by the English during the same period, include:

  1. Rio de Janeiro city (2 057),
  2. São Paulo (1 212),
  3. Recife (980),
  4. Santos (555) and,
  5. Niterói (459).[2]

Cultural Influence - Sports[edit]

One of their major contributions at the cultural level was the establishment of several football clubs, including São Paulo Athletic Club and Fluminense Football Club.
