4. 1756 Testamentary of Diego de Espinosa
Francisco Espinosa, son of Diego (p. $)
In writings to the Governor and Captain General of May 18, 1756,
Josefa de Torres, widow of Diego de Espinosa and mother of Francisco de Espinosa,
promotes the testamentary in which it is established among other things
First, placed for inventory were the houses of the abode of said
widow which are of stone covered with shingles with its corresponing lot.
It. placed for inventory were the houses that are found on the
street called the principal St. in which lives the referred to Juan Perez de Mata
which are of stone with flat roof and with its comresponding lot.
Yt. placed for inventory a small house of stone that is found on the
Marina and borders with the aforementioned houses.
5. 1790 In the writings of July of 1790 directed to the Governor and Captain
General Francisco Xavier Miranda alleges that the descendents of the
old owners having returned that the house be turned over to them
while His Majesty determines.
His allegation is founded on:
a. He is the husband of Dona Andrea de Espinosa, niece of Francisco
who abandoned the house in the evacuation in 1764.
b. In 1784 the house was abandoned by the english without document
of any type being made.
c. He adds the house was inhabited by Don Enrique (or Guillermo)
Niranda obtained the use of the house by edict of the 19th of
August of 1790. The Governor demanded the presentation of the docu-
ment that accredited the possible rights of his wife to property
of the house for subsequent proceedings.
6. 1791 Miranda did not present the documents and the house was bought at
public auction by D. Jose Fernandes for Don Jos6 Cobachicha for
860 p .
7. 1802 Antonio Espinosa, son of Francisco, arrived from Habana, by a writing
of May of 1802 alleges that: "His Majesty has found it fittg to
resolve by Royal Order of March 18, 1791 in Article 8 of the Plan
that formed the general administration of Havana, that it be restored
to the Floridian families the possessions with their lands which they
had prior to their departure from here, proceeding the corresponding
production of evidence."
8. 1794 Don Jos& Cobachicha sold to D. Antonio Berta on August 2, 1794, to
whom D. Antonio Espinosa reclaims the amount (or value) of the house.
9. 1803 In July of 1803, the proxies (or attorneys) of D. Antonio Espinosa
and of D. Jose Cobachiaa settle the lawsuit for half the value
agreed to, the house remaining in the possession of Antonio Berta.
