Mini Biographies of Scots and Scots Descendants (E)
Elliot of Portugal


Weel, this is what our old Nobility books say about the Leotte family in Portugal. They state that a nobleman called Gilbert Elliot came to Portugal with the Count of Cambridge in 1383, to fight against Castille troops and to defend the Portuguese independence.

The Leotte family in Portugal is well-known, some of them are very rich. One of them owns the São Paulo Hotel at Serra d'Ossa, one of our leading hotels, in a fabulous environment. The genealogy has been accepted up to last summer. One of my friends called my attention to a book dealing with Noblemen of Algarve - two members of the family have received coat-of-arms - and to some further investigation on the matter.

Should anyone have any further information on the family please contact Miguel de Sousa
