INIGO, Abad y Lasierra, known as Friar Inigo (in-yee'-go), Spanish missionary, born in Spain about 1730; died in Madrid in 1789. In 1772 he went to Porto Rico, W. I., with Bishop Manuel Jimenez Perez, of the same order, whose confessor and adviser he was, and, besides the duties peculiar to his missionary work, gave himself to the study of history, geography, political economy, and the habits of the country. About 1778 he was exiled by the governor of the island, Don Jose Dufresne, through personal enmity. King Charles III. disapproved this act, and later the Count of Florida Blanca, first minister of the king, commended to Friar Irugo the task of writing the history of Porto Rico, which, on 25 August, 1782, he delivered into the minister's hands under the title "Historia Geografica, Civil y Natural, de San Juan Bautista de Puerto Rico " (Madrid, 1788, edited by Don Antonio Valladares de Sotomayor" St. John of Porto Rico, 1830" corrected and enlarged ed., by Don Jose Julian de Acosta y Calvo, 1866).
