CAJIGAL, Francisco Antonio (kah-he'-gahl), marquis of Cajigal, born in Santander, Spain, in 1695 ; died in Spain in 1777. In 1738 he was appointed governor of Santiago de Cuba, and in 1742 he repelled an attack of the English admiral Vernon, who suffered great losses. From 1747 till 1760 he was governor-general of Cuba. During his administration the offices of the marine department were removed from Vera Cruz to Havana, the latter port being considered the safer of the two on account of its fortifications. He also established the navy-yard, where so many ships were built for the Spanish navy, and the arsenal. In 1760 Cajigal was appointed viceroy of Mexico ad interim, and in 1761 returned to Spain.
