The first inhabitants were the Paulista family of Francisco Bueno da Fonseca, leader of a revolt against a Portuguese judge in São Paulo in 1712. Bueno da Fonseca, his sons and other explorers, settled in the region of the rivers Capivari and Grande by the years of 1720 or 1721, where they were engaged in the search for gold and in the opening of new roads to the Goiás mines. In 1737 the explorers receive from the Governor Martinho de Mendonça a allotment letter confirming their region occupation, which grew through agriculture and livestock.
