In June 1889 it ascended to a villa in own municipality.

Villiers de l’Ile Adam: Carta (…) das Provincias de Pernambuco, Alagoas e Sergipe, 1848

São Braz (heute Brás geschrieben) war ab Mai 1875 ein Distrikt im Município von Porto Real do Colégio, der am Nordufer des Flusses São Francisco nah an der Grenze zu Sergipe lag, rund 180 km südwestlich der Provinzhauptstadt Maceió. Im Juni 1889 stieg er zu einer Villa im eigenen Município auf.

In seiner Contribuição para a História dos Correios de Alagoas (Maceió, 1969) schreibt Aldo Cardoso, es gibt dort ein Postamt seit November 1879. Kein Stempel aus dem Kaiserreich konnte bisher mit Sicherheit dieser Ortschaft zugeordnet werden.
