Re: Your interest In Augustina Regldor's property.
Let us do the full block.

Puente, Bl. "H", 1763

109 was the lot of San Patricie, now on corner
of St. George and Hypelita.

108 was owned by Antoena Parin.

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 Levetts,who had come into the property evidently,
sold it to Stephan Haven, the "hangman".

Haven passed it to Francisco Entralgo 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 -antoyo.
106 was Francisco Oarriera.
105 was Francisco Suarez(Zuaree)

According to Fish List Nes., 42, 52, 54, all this section
went to Dr. George Kemp, the surgeon. 1769/71.

Escrituras No. 15, 1787, shows Sanchez as agent for Dr. Kemp
selling all this to William McHenry, the Dealer in Provisions.

HOUSE N e j. was on the corner of St. George and Cuna Streets,
E and belonged to Pedro Zapata.

According to the Fish List No. 63, Pedre Cosifacie, the
Greek from Cersica, arriving in 1768 with the Mineroan
Colony, taking up residence in St. Augustine in 1777,
bought this property in 1779. He was a Storekeeper and

Escrituras, 1784, Nes. 13, and 14v. Recitation shows
that in 1782 Cesifacio sold to Roque Leonardi, the wine
merchant, and in 1784, Leonardi sold to Andres Paeetti,
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 Felipe Damere. [a e are going backwards as to
numbers new]

Fish does net list this place.

No. 111 is the home of Maria Rodriguez. [You have her
back r round from previous note of mine]
Fish does net list this either.

By 1771 these properties came into the hands *f
Alexander Skinner .See Escrituras N l'.>, 4.'3-
The s "'equent passirp of owners comes out in
the 1785 sale.

Sk.inner sold half to Bernard Spenver and the other
half was sold to James Scotland, another dealer in wines.
17-T5 beth these os.rltes pa. sed this property to 'redriek
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 170'", [scrlturas Ve. 1601 David Leavy
sells corner of Cuna and Charlotte to Antonio La70 de la Vega.

Escrlturas Nes. 404 and 423 show that Antonle la-e de la Vega
sold to Joseph Aguirre, with some underfoot work going on here,
for Aguirre refused to take the place testifying it belon~wJ
to Joseph Eldes. So Eldes must have bought it frro 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 yeu are
currently di~ in_, A one which passed to PervE Rodriguez
de Cala, the Tavernkeeper,later)

New we round Into Charlotte Street. Half way up and
all the way to the corner of Hypellta, half way up lypelita
was ?-e. 110, wnr, Lnoa Au.iustina Regider(You have her
back-rer'ind) Fish lists her tnder a no entry.
But about a year later James Henderson, the Innaeeper,
had this place on the Mencrief map.
On the Debrahm List of 1771 Thomas Clark, storekeeper and
Goldz th, appea;-s. He was husband of l.'ra Honoria Clark.
They were living in St. Augustine prior to 1771.
So far I have found neth ny that documents the transfer
fr~-a Henderson to Clark except Clark,(r.) was an early
boundary in the recitation of some of the surrounding
properties. And Henoera(Lenera) lived there. The Census
of 1783 gives a lonp 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. Nn. 341v..1802 show- her '*'l.
