PEIXOTO, Ignacio Jose de Alvarenga (pi-sho'-to), Brazilian patriot, born in Rio Janeiro in 1748; died in Ambaea, Angola, 22 May, 1792. He was graduated at the University of Coimbra as bachelor of divinity, and appointed judge of Cintra, and afterward district judge of Rio das Mortes. On his arrival in Rio Janeiro he became intimate with the viceroy, the Marquis of Lavradio, to whom he dedicated many of his poetical works. Peixoto was one of the most devoted followers of Paula Freire de Andrade (q. v.), and was preparing for the coming revolution in his province, when the Viscount of Barbacena, governor of the captaincy of Minas Geraes, warned by informers, caused him to be arrested. Peixoto was carried in chains to Rio Janeiro, placed in solitary confinement in the dungeons of the island of Cobras, and on 18 April, 1792, condemned to death; but the penalty was commuted to transportation for life, and he embarked for the penal settlement of Ambaca in Angola, where he died a few months later.
