1.2 Balthazar José de Assunção Parga. Fazendeiro em Itapecuru. Mercê de Carta de Sesmaria em 8 de Novembro de 1786 com terras em Itapecuru.
Raimundo was not the only one in his family to receive the emperor’s benefits: in 08.11.1786, a Letter of Sesmaria had been emitted for Balthazar José de Assumpção Parga, conceding to him and his “ascendants and descendants” lands in Itapecuru. My point here is to demonstrate that, while Valeriana and other slaves were combining their multiple forms of gender relations, weaving their network throughout different fazendas, negotiating the construction of their families and village through relations with different slaves and masters, the white Pargas were also establishing their own family. Differently than the village where privileges in accessing the land were relativized by the collective appropriation of the land as a common resource, and powers were negotiated through different forms of gender relations, the Pargas were using marriages and compadrios to concentrate the wealth and power among themselves. Through relations with the royal family and the colonial authorities, in one way or another, the white Parga family constituted itself, and did so as recipients of patentes and owners of lands and slaves in the Mearim valley
