Alagoa Nova, Paraiba (APB-0015)

Villiers de l’Ile Adam: Carta (…) das Provincias do Rio Grande do Norte e Parahiba, 1848

Another name: Larangeiras (1938-1943)

The Freguesia of Sant’Anna da Alagoa Nova (St. Anne on the New Lake) was founded in February 1837 in the Município of Vila Nova da Rainha (now Campina Grande), 120 km west of the provincial capital of Parahiba do Norte (now João Pessoa). The village rose to a vila in September 1850 but was demoted as a district of Campina Grande in June 1900, only to rise again as a município in November 1904. Between 1938 and 1943 it was given the name Larangeiras before the old name returned.

Nova Monteiro writes in Administrações e Agencias Postaes do Brasil Imperio (Brasil Filatelico/RJ, 1934-5; Reprint SPP 1994-1999), there was a post office there since May 1850.

Confirmation of this is provided by the Rio press:

Diario do Rio de Janeiro, 13 June 1850 (Exped. 16 May)

So far, no imperial postmark from there has turned up.

Anderer Name: Larangeiras (1938-1943)

Die Freguesia von Sant’Anna da Alagoa Nova (Hl. Anna am Neuen See) wurde im Februar 1837 im Município von Vila Nova da Rainha (heute Campina Grande) gegründet und lag 120 km westlich der Provinzhauptstadt Parahiba do Norte (heute João Pessoa) entfernt. Der Ort stieg zwar im September 1850 zur Vila, wurde aber im Juni 1900 als Distrikt von Campina Grande degradiert, um im November 1904 wieder als Município aufzusteigen. Zwischen 1938 und 1943 wurde ihm der Name Larangeiras verpasst, bevor der alte Name zurückkam.

Nova Monteiro schreibt in Administrações e Agencias Postaes do Brasil Imperio (Brasil Filatelico/RJ, 1934-5; Reprint SPP 1994-1999), es gab dort ein Postamt seit Mai 1850.

Die Bestätigung hierfür liefert die Presse aus Rio:

Diario do Rio de Janeiro, 13. Juni 1850 (Exped. 16.Mai)

Bisher ist aber kein kaiserlicher Poststempel von dort aufgetaucht.
