COLACO KAMATH family from Hospet

From the Ferris Encyclopedia of Mangalorean Families.

These pages contain the COLACO KAMATH family from Hospet, the descendants of Pascal COLACO.



There are two such families from the same region and they must be connected. I have been unable so far to get a link which is possibly a brother of Pascal. Pascal Colaco apparently came from Goa and settled in Taccode. He donated land to the "Holy Cross Church" of Hospet (which has a history of 200 years - the only church that was spared by Tippu Sultan in return for the favors received from the Jain King of Moodbidri as he had a special affinity for Hospet Catholics as they used to cultivate betel leaves and were the main suppliers of the Paan chewing Hindu community. Pascal Colaco made a condition for the land gifted to Hospet church as follows: A mass has to be said whenever a Colaco dies - and this condition remains perpetual to this day.
