Juan de Esquivel

Juan de Esquivel was born in Seville, Spain and died in Jamaica in 1513. He conquered the island of Jamaica, as well as the Taino people of Hispaniola for the Spanish Crown.

Esquivel accompanied Christopher Columbus in his second trip to the American continent in 1493 and participated in the conquest and colonization of the isle of Hispaniola, where he stayed for a long time. Friar Bartolome de las Casas wrote Spanish authorities about his conduct during the Higüey massacre of 1503.
