Relationships-i1763


Hospital Street (Aviles)
Squares: "R", "V", "C"
"S", "d", "h", "X".

This was most fantastic! The inter-relationships were possibly the greatest mixture I have
encountered.

On the Calle of the Royal Hospital we find the Brotherhood of the Holy Sacrament, another of
those confraternities formed to do good works, pray for the souls, etc....

The house of the Brotherhood was in Block "d", No. 271. The Royal Hospital was in Block "R",
No. 233. As far as I know they were the only two public buildings belonging to the Government
or Church in the little street.

Beginning at the central Plaza and moving south on the street we pass first a little Plaza on the
east and the Alvaro Lopez de Toledo House on the west.

As we move on we come to the Royal Hospital in "R" next to Toledo, and across from that in
"S", the home of Don Ildephonse Sanchez de Casahonda. The Casahonda houses occupied the
whole of the little block.

Now we move on pass the Lane to the sea, (Artillery) and we are in between Blocks "V" on the
west and "X" on the east. Don Antonio Urbane de Mele is No. 238 "V" on the comer. Dona
Manuela Alvarez Sotomayer is No. 244 and Cristobal Contreras is on the other comer No. 243.
All in Block "V".

Opposite are the gardens and graves of the houses of Bl. "X". The houses themselves face on
Charlotte. No. 247 is Philipe Hacob (Jacob) Briel, No. 246 is Bernardo Femandex and No. 245 is
Father Juan Jose Solana. Father Solana occupied the (Artillery Lane) north Lane side and Briel
was on the comer of the other cross street (Cadiz) sometimes called Greg, Green.. .etc...

So we move on to stand between Blocks "e" on the west and "d" on the east. The Brotherhood
house is in front of us in "d" with Don Manual Fernandez Lopez owning the rest of the block,
having houses facing Charlotte but extending in property to Calle Hospital. Nos. 271 and 272.

Opposite the Brotherhood and the graves of Lopez we see in Block "c" on the Gregg comer the
de la Rezes, Ignacien-Victoria. No. 269, next to Ignacio Reze we find a No. 268 Don Juan
Martinez and No. 267, Tolibie Zamerano.









Relationships... 1763...cont............... -2-


We are new opposite a half Lane, (BRAVO) and still have Block "c" on the west but Block "h"
is new to the east.

No. 266 "e" is Don Lorenze Josef de Leon facing this Lane. No. 265 is Jose de la Rosa and on
the long cross street, (BRIDGE) we find Dona Theresa del Pueye No. 264.

Opposite the Pueye residence, in Bl. "h", No. 291 is Don Nicolas Ponce de Leon and next to him
on the north is Don Juan de Salas, No. 290.

Mrs. Ignacie Rose (269-c) and Mrs. Antonio Urbane de Molo (238-V) were sisters, daughters of
the Treasurer, Francisco Menendez Marques, grand-daughters of the earlier (elder) Lorenzo
Josef de Leon. Both were first cousin to Don Lorenzo Josef (grandson of the elder) 266-c. Also
1st cousin to Don Juan Martinez thru the Rodriguez-Acesta family. Mrs. Alvaro Lopez, (No. 234-
R) was an aunt of both Mrs. Melo and Mrs. Roso. (Menendez side)

Teribie Zamorane was father of Mrs. Nicolas Ponce de Leon (291-h across the street) and to Mrs.
Lorenzo Josef de Leon (266e next door)...Mrs. Zamorane was 1st cousin to Don Juan Martinez
next door.

Mrs. Fernandez Lopez, (272-d) and Theresa del Pueye, Mrs. Francisco de Aguilar, (264-c) were
half sisters, both daughters of Don Juan Lorenso Pueye, (by different wives) both grandchildren
of Contader Juan del Pueye and both great grands of the elder de Leon. Both 2nd cousin of young
L.J. de Leon (266-e) 3rd cousin to Don Ildephonso Sanchez Casahonda, (235-S) and 2nd cousin to
Mrs. Roso, Mrs. Molo, Theresa del Pueye, in addition, was 1st cousin to Juan Martinez en
Rodriguez-Acosta side, and 1st cousin to Mrs. Teribie Zamorano on the Rios side.

Ferandez Lopez himself was nephew of Nicolas Ponce de Leon, (291-h) Both were cousin to
Mrs. Cristobal Contreras (234-V)

Ildophonse Sanchez Casahonda, (235-S) and Don Lorenso Josef de Leon, (266-c) were nephew
and uncle. The mother of the former was sister of the latter. Both were grands, (gr. Grand) of the
elder de Leon.

Mrs. Sanchez Casahonda, (235-S) was a de la Puente, sister of the mapmaker (Juan Eligio de la
Puente) and another of their sisters married Don Alvaro Lopez de Toledo's son, Don Antonio.
He comes into this area as he returned and bought this Toledo property, losing it later to
Francisco Sanchez de Ortigosa, (234-R)








Relationships... 1763, cont..... .-3-


The "X" block property owners, Briel, Fernandez and Father Solana were all defendants of the
Solana family. 247
Briel's ancestor was the Escribano Alonso Solana, 3rd. The powerful scribe from 1678 to 1696
when he died.

Father Solana was son of the Escribano Juan de Solana, who served from 1696 to 1727 when he
died. 255
Both Scribes were brothers.

Fernanedez was son of Mrs. Briel by another husband. 246
Mrs. Fernandez had for ancestor the Adjutant Alonso Solana, the 2nd, father of the two Scribes.

During the 2nd Spanish period, Don Manual Solana, the Mounted Dragoon who remained in
Florida throughout the British Regime, got more than three quarters of this block. He had for an
ancestor the Deputy Governor Don Manual de Solana, brother of the two Scribes.

All of the 1763 owers were grandchildren of the Adj. Alonso the 2nd, and great grands of the Sgt.
Major Alonso de Solana, 1st.

Many of this family married into the other families on this street. For example, Capt. Juan Pueye
had made a Solana marriage before de Leon. One had married onto the Ponce de Leon family
earlier. The Cordores were connections.

Mrs. Juan de Salas of 290-h was one of their cousins. Mrs. Josef de la Rosa, 265-c was another
connection on the Hernandez side to Briel of 247-X.

In addition there were many lesser connections. Half of them could count on Arguelles in the
family. More than one had Capt. Don Manuel Rodriguez Acesta as grandfather. Mrs. Contreras
of 243-V was from the Ponce de Leon-Anaya family. Several of the families had prominent
Florencia relationships.

It certainly was a very closely related grouping on one period of St. Augustine's history. Marked
by a member of almost every notable and official family known in the town.

Predominently native were the property owners and wives. Only about half dozen were "foreign
born". Zamerane, Rozo, de Melo, Nunez-Bernava, de Salas, were the foreign boys. So was
Contreras. All the rest were St. Augustine born, many with ancestors dating to the late 1500's.
