JAUREGUI Y AGUILAR, Domingo (how'-ray-ghee), South American historian, born in Panama in 1705; died in Paracatfi del Principe, Brazil, in 1758. He became a Jesuit, lived in Brazil, engaging in missionary work among the Indians, and afterward in Uruguay, where he was elected assistant provincial, and had charge of several Indian villages. Toward the end of his career he retired to Paracatu del Principe, of which he became vicar in 1751, and devoted his leisure time to historical researches. Jauregui published his works under the pen-name of Tray Domingo, but after his death his manuscripts and a revised edition of his former publications were printed in Rome under his real name. They include "Cronica de la Nueva Andalusia" (2 vols., Buenos Ayres, 1748); "Descripcao germ d'America" (Rio Janeiro, 1751); "Historia da provincia Sancta Cruz a qui vulgarmente chamamos Brazil" (Buenos Ayres, 1754); "Cronica do estado do Brasil" (2 vols., Rome, 1774); "Cronica de las Indias" (2 vols., 1774); "Historia corografica des los Reinos del Quito a Chile" (3 vols., 1776); and "Historia del Nuevo Nundo" (1776).
