Notes for JOHN MORANT:

John Morant was a descendant of the family of Spanish Jews, Morante, who accompanied Diego Columbus (Christopher's brother) when he was appointed Governor of the Island. The 'hato' de Morante, or 'cowpen of the Morante' is listed on Spanish maps dating back to the 1500s. Due to the threat of the Spanish Inquisition the Jews on the island (which included the Lopes-Torres family under arrest on the estate of Don Pereda in the English territory now called 'Southfield') assisted Admiral Penn and General Venables in their successful assault in on Jamaica in 1655. The Jews were given permission to reside on the island and became members of the Anglican church. They still practised a form of Judaism.
