Untitled[edit]

"His landowner status allowed him to use the title lavrador "landholder"" Doesn't lavrador signify "[agricultural] worker"?--Wetman (talk) 06:11, 24 October 2009 (UTC)

Did not reach Labrador?[edit]

This goes in the talk section since I don't have full information. According to Samuel Eliot Morison.'The European Discovery of America: The Northern Voyages',1971, page 212 Fernandes reached only the southern tip of Greenland. A century later geographers learned of the old Norse name of Greenland and moved "Labrador" to the the east coast of Canada. He does not give a full argument and his only evidence seems to be some old maps that use Cape Labrador for what appears to be Cape Farewell.Benjamin Trovato (talk) 05:21, 2 February 2011 (UTC)

Proposed merge[edit]

Pero de Barcelos is a one sentence stub that contains nothing that isn't also stated here.Mannanan51 (talk) 19:34, 8 September 2012 (UTC)

I hadn't noticed the merge tag when I redirected Pero de Barcelos to this one, for the same reason you stated. Horologium (talk) 14:28, 6 January 2013 (UTC)
