History Of Old Fatio House Goes

Back To Andres Ximenez, Native Of

Granada, And Owner In Year 1797

Research work done in connec-
tion with the Fatio House on Aviles
Street, bought last spring by the
National Society of the Colonial
Dames in Florida in cooperation
with the Restoration, shows many
interesting names in connection
with the property as it has come
on down the years.
The first owner of whom much
known is shown to have been
Andres Ximenez, it being trans-
ferred to him in 1797 by Juan Her-
nandez. In Escrituras, 1797-1798,

is shown to have transferred to
Andres Ximenez King's lot on Hos-

dary. Description of the land is
given in detail. An entry in Es-
crituras of 1802 shows that Gover-
nor White confirmed the title to
Rosa Ximenez, who had the prop-
erty from her father, and her hus-
band, Juan Buchany, deeded the
property in 1827 to Margaret Cook.
In 1838 Miguel Ximanez, presum-
ably a son, gave a deed for his
Margaret Cook sold the property
in 1838 to Sarah P. Anderson,
grandmother of the late Dr. An-
drew Anderson. She was the wi-
dow of George Anderson of Tomo-
ka. Sarah Anderson sold the prop-

it has come on down to the present
generation of St. Augustinians as
"The Old Fatio House," although
its history runs far back of the
Fatio ownership.
In order to show the complete
and detailed information that old
marriage records in the Cathedral
archives here convey, the following
from the marriage entry of Andres
Ximenez and Juana Pellicer is
