Re: Your interest In Augustina Regider's property.
Let us de the full block.
Puente, BI. "H", 1763
I0 was the let of San Patrici, new on corner
of St. George and Hypellta.
108 was owned by Antonia Maria.
According to the Fish List, Nos. 77, 84, both these
properties went to James Box, once the Attorney General
during British days, date of sale 1766.
Box had a daughter who married a Mr. Levett and in 1782
the Levetta,who had eome into the property evidently,
sold it to Stephan Haven, the "hangman".
Haven passed it to Francisco Entralge in 1785 and
Entralge s6ld it to Father Thomas Hassett in 1787. Escrituras,
No. 18, 1787.
No. 107. next down St. George Street going north....
was Miguel Iantoyo.
106 was Francisco ;arriera.
105 was Francisco Suarez(Zuarez)
According to Fish List Nos., 42, 52, 54, all this section
went to Dr. George Kemp, the surgeon. 1769/71.
Escrituras No. 15, 1787, shews Sanchez as agent for Dr. Kemp
selling all this to William McHenry, the Dealer in Provisions.
No. 104 was on the corner of St. George and Cuna Streets,
and belonged to Pedro Zapata.
According to the Fish List No. 63, Pedre Cosifacio, the
Greek from Corsica, arriving in 1768 with the Minoroan
Colony, taking up residence in St. Augustine in 1777,
bought this property in 1779. He was a Storekeeper and
Escrituras, 1784, Nos. 13, and 14v. Recitation shows
that in 1782 Cosifacio sold to Reque Leonardi, the wine
merchant, and in 1784, Leonardi sold to Andres Pacetti,
the wigmaker, who immediately sold that same year to
Antonio Berte, the Tavernkeeper....
Rounding the corner into Cuna we come to No. 112, house
of Pedro Felipo Damere. [We are going backwards as to
Fish does not list this place.
No. 111 is the home of Maria Rodriguez. [You have her
background from previous note of mine]
Fish does not list this either.
By 1771 these properties came Into the hands of
Alexander Skinner.[See Escrituras Nos. 136, 4031
The subsequent passing of owners comes out in
the 1785 sale.
Skinner sold half to Bernard Spenwer and the other
half was sold to James Scotland, another dealer in wines.
1785 both these parties passed this property to Fredrick
Stage, the baker.
However this section must not have passed entirely to
either Skinner, and these he evidently sold the section
to later. In March 1785 [(scrlturas Ie. 160] David Leavy
sells corner of Cuna and Charlotte to Antonio Lazo de la Vega.
Escrituras Nos. 404 and 423 show that Antonio Lao de la Vega
sold to Joseph Aguirre, with some underfoot work going on here,
for Aguirre refused to take the place testifying it belonged
to Joseph Eldes. So Eldes must have bought it from Vega or
from Leavy prior to all this. Anyway it ends up In 1788
as the residence of Joseph Eldes(Ales, Agles-Perles)
[This is Mrs. Sullivan's area, the one in which you are
currently digging, t e one which passed to Pedro Redriguez
de Cala, the Tavernkeeper,later)
New we round into Charlotte Street. Half way up and
all the way to the corner of Hypolita, half waj up Hypolita
was No. 110, owner, Deoa Augustina Regider(You have her
background) Fish lists her under a no entry.
But about a year later James Henderson, the InnKeeper,
had this place on the Mencrief map.
On the DeBrahm List of 1771 Thomas Clark, storekeeper and
Goldsmith, appears. He was husband of Deoa Honoria Clark.
They were living in St. Augustine prior to 1771.
So far I have found nothing that documents the transfer
from Hendersen to Clark except Clark(Mr.) was an early
boundary in the recitation of some of the surrounding
properties. And Heneria(Lenera) lived there. The Censua
of 1783 gives a long listing and description of her places
and en both 1783 and 1787 it gives this one place as her
place of residence. [I gave you photostat number of 1783
Census] Esc. No. 341v..1802 shows her Will.
