The surname De almeida is of local origin, that is, it is a surname derived from the place of origin of the initial bearer. In this case, the surname is derived from one of several places so named in Portugal (northeast area). The name is derived from the Arabic words "al ma'ida," meaning a plateau. One of the earliest records of the surname is that of one Jose Fernandez de Almeida who founded a town of the same name in 1258.

De almeida Early Origins



The surname De almeida was first found in the town of Viseu, which is today known as Mangualde, a municipality in the subregion of Dão-Lafões in the central region of Portugal. Jose Fernandez de Almeida founded Azurara of Beira from 1223-1245. He was the 5th Lord of Pinheiro and Canela. The village of Almeida in the seventeenth century came to be called Almeidinha. One of the most notable of the name at this time was D. Francisco de Almeida, Viceroy.
