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. During the Mexican War of Independence, he defeated a royalist convoy near Veracruz when the Fort of San Juan de Ulúa was besieged in 1825. On November 23 of that same year, through the capitulation of that fort to him, the long process of the Mexico's independence was finally finished. He was governor of Yucatan in 1835.
