    Lopo Sarmento de Carvalho settled in Macau in 1615. He belonged to the family of Sarmentos from Trás-os-Montes, Portugal and was apparently a descendant of Lopo Sarmento, mayor of Castelo de Bragança who heroically repelled invasion. According to a document dated 1622, he arrived in India in 1607. He served as soldier and successfully as Captain-General (a title given by the Crown to administrators of parts of the Portuguese Empire) and was wounded several times in battle. In May 1613 Nuno da Cunha left Goa as Commander of a fleet to attack Melique, the Mongol governor of the district adjacent to Beçaim (on the Western coast of India). Lopo Sarmento embarked on this voyage as Captain of Infantry.1
