RAMIREZ DE QUIN0NES, Pedro, born in Spain late in the 15th century ; died at Lima, Peru, about 1570. When the audiencia of Confines, or Central America, was created in 1542, Ramirez was appointed judge, and took possession of his office in Comayagua in 1543. In 1546, when Pedro de la Gasca (q. v.) arrived at Santa Marta, Ramirez was commissioned by the audiencia to carry to him a re-enforcement of 200 men, and took part in the battle of Xaquixaguana. He returned to Guatemala in 1549, went to Spain in 1552, and on his return to Guatemala was ordered by royal decree to subdue the rebellious Indians of Putchutla and Lacandon, which he did in less than three months. As a reward for his numerous services, in 1565 he was elected president of the Confines, and later he was promoted to Lima, where he died.
