Commissioned by Charles III of Spain to investigate contraband activity, Alejandro O'Reilly conducted a census. Puerto Rico's population had reached 44,883, of whom 5,037 were slaves, making an 11. 2 percent, a very low ratio, considered the lowest for the Caribbean.

Age 69

A British armada of 68 vessels and 7,000 men under Scotsman Sir Ralph Abercromby attacked San Juan, Puerto Rico. The Spanish defenses held. A procession of women made up to look like soldiers caused the siege to be called off. An annual parade later commemorated this event.

Name Meaning

Spanish and French (Normandy and Picardy): topographic name for someone who lived in a house with an iron grille or iron fencing, ultimately from Latin cancelus. The prevalence of the name in FL suggests that it was probably brought to the U.S. chiefly from Cuba.
