The Arms of
                                                Francisco Salvado Leal


Fr. Francisco Salvado Leal was appointed Parish Priest of Alcaide, Roman Catholic Diocese of Guarda, by His Most Faithful Majesty King Luis I of Portugal and the Algarves on April 13, 1886.

The appointment was registered on the XL General Book of Grace and Favours of King Luis I, page 177 (currently deposited in the Portuguese National Archive - Torre do Tombo).

Despite being a Roman Catholic clergy, Fr. Francisco Salvado Leal produced six children together with the love of his life, Maria de Matos. His six children, Maria da Luz, Maria da Nazaré, Maria Amélia, Maria Madalena, Maria da Ressurreição and Francisco were all duly fathered by him and baptized. In addition, he presided over the marriage of his children, buried his three daughters and baptized his own grandchildren.

The relationship between Francisco Salvado Leal and Maria de Matos is documented among academic circles of those who studied the life of his relative and politician, Francisco Pinto Cunha Leal.

Among the descendants of Maria da Ressurreição, are Maria de Lourdes de Matos Salvado Silva, Isabel Maria Salvado Silva Pinto Correia, Miguel Silva Reichinger Pinto Correia and Martim Silva Pinto Correia.

The mount in his arms alludes to the parish he served all his life, Alcaide, located on a hilltop and to the coat of arms of Donas, the place where his partner Maria de Matos was forced to live. The cherry tree, with its fruits, alludes to his children and the main agricultural crop of his parish. At the same time, the dog evokes the loyalty (also a pun on the surname "Leal", Portuguese for "Loyal") he had towards parishioners and family, as remembered by Maria de Lourdes, his granddaughter. Finally, the Saint Peter's keys reference the Church of Saint Peter to which he was appointed.
