Hernán Manrique De Rojas
Hernando de Manrique de Rojas was a Spanish colonial governor of the Colony of Santiago (Jamaica) c.1575. In late 1562 he commanded Spanish forces sent to destroy Charlesfort, a French fort at Port Royal, South Carolina. This fort had been abandoned after its leader Jean Ribault had returned to France to obtain supplies and had been delayed there by the outbreak of another phase of the French Wars of Religion. The Spanish, however, wanted to make it harder for the French to return. Manrique de Rojas also explored the coasts of what is today the Eastern United States.

Edward Trelawny (governor)
Edward Trelawny (1699 – 16 January 1754) was the British governor of Jamaica from April 1738 to September 1752. He is especially known for a treaty that ended the long war that pitted white planters against the Maroons. Biography[edit] Edward Trelawny was born in 1699 in Trelawne, Cornwall, England. Of an ancient and well-known Cornish family, he was a younger son of Bishop Sir Jonathan Trelawny[1] and brother of Sir John Trelawny.[2] In 1734, Trelawny left Scotland to join the British Imperial Army in his fight against the French in the war of the Polish Succession. After this, Trelawny was elected for both East Looe and West Looe.[2] So, he returned to Parliament in this year (1734), but both elections were declared void, as he was then a commissioner of customs in Scotland and ineligible to sit in Parliament. He was appointed Governor of Jamaica in April 1738

Edward Morgan (governor)
Edward Morgan was a Welsh politician and became the Deputy Governor of Jamaica in 1664, after the Restoration of the monarchy under Charles II. His daughter, Mary, married his nephew, the celebrated privateer Henry Morgan. Hostilities between the English and Dutch in 1664 led to a change in government policy: colonial governors were now authorised to issue letters of marque against the Dutch.[n 1] Many privateers did not take up the letters, although an expedition to conquer the Dutch island of Sint Eustatius led to the death of Edward, who was leading a 600-man force.[2] Notes[edit]^ The hostilities led to the Second Anglo-Dutch War (1665–1667).[1]References[edit]^ Latimer 2009, p. 146. ^ Latimer 2009, p. 148.Books[edit]Latimer, Jon (2009).
