The MesuradoFamily
from Portugal
c.1573

  • The Mesurado surname has also been spelled as Mezurado, Mezurada and Misorado meaning obeisant.
  • The earliest recorded person in this branch of the family was Abraham Mesurado also known as Rides or Aires/Ayres.
  • There is a Cape Mesurado; a headland on the coast of Liberia near the capital Monrovia and the mouth of the Saint Paul River. It was named Cape Mesurado by Portuguese sailors in the 1560s. It is the promontory on which African American settlers established the city now called Monrovia on April 25, 1822.
