He came from Cartagena de Indias. About the loss of this galleon there are several primary sources of information. In AGI, Ind.Gen., File 1876, is given as lost in the island of Cozumel. Fernández Duro, in the Spanish Armada, vol.V, pag. 437, he gets lost with the galleon San Martin in Costa Firme. This same author then gives it as shipwrecked near Honduras. By later data that I located in the AGI, Hiring, file 5179, the precise place can be determined thanks to the cars of the survivors, who claim to have been lost in Banco Chinchorro.
