General Note: When Vicente Martínez Ybor departed Spain for Cuba in 1832, the enterprising fourteen-year-old quickly became involved in the emerging cigar industry. By 1853, he had consolidated small workshop production of cigars into a large Havana factory. His early brand El Principe de Gales, remained his most popular brand of cigars throughout his manufacturing career which extended to Key West, New York City and Ybor City. As a tribute to the namesake of Ybor City, the V. Martínez Ybor's Sons Company produced a brand of cigars in honor of their father in 1902, six years after his death.
