Regarding Pedro Sainz de Baranda. Pedro Sainz de Baranda y Borreiro (March 13, 1787 - December 16, 1845) was a soldier, sailor and politician of New Spain, born in San Francisco de Campeche and died in Mérida, Yucatán. He took part in the famous Battle of Trafalgar where he was wounded and promoted to lieutenant.
