info from george feliciouz <gefeliciouz@yahoo.co.in and Linda kraftimakins@comcast.net 

Feliciouz is the anglicized form of Felicio.  The Felicio family came from Algravia which is on St. Michael's Island in Portugal. The Portuguese ancester who reached  Cochin, India (some where in the later part of 1700's) married into an Anglo- Indian family of Irish origin hence the surname Clements-Feliciouz (Felicio was Anglicized). The Clements part of the  family were of Irish origin, hence Felicio was made Feliciouz.  The Portuguese  ancestor's (name not known) son was James (Diago) Clements- Feliciouz the father of John Clements-Feliciouz who married Eliza  Fernandez from Tangesseri, Quilon (daughter of John and Francesca Fernandez). Kindly add this information this was given to me by an  aunt who has it all written. Thank You. George Feliciouz.
