Notaries of color in colonial Panama: Limpieza de Sangre, Legislation and Imperial Practices in the Administration of the Spanish Empire
MetadataShow full item record
On July 20, 1740, King Philip V of Spain was given paperwork regarding a dispute over the adjudication of a notarial office in Panama City and, as usual, he was expected to make a decision. The king also had in hand recommendations from the Cámara of the Consejo de Indias. The king would have handled the case in a relatively straightforward manner, but for one fact—the two notaries involved in the public bid were of African descent.
