Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
This collection chiefly contains official correspondence and legal documents of the Veyga family (also spelled Veiga) and related family members in Cuba and later Argentina, dating from the late-18th to the late-19th centuries. Materials include legal, business, political, and governmental documents of multiple generations, as well as papers of Dr. Francisco de Veyga (1866-1948), primarily reflecting his involvement with the Cuban Independence Movement in the 1890s, including international diplomatic work.
The Veyga Family (also spelled de Veiga) was a Spanish-Cuban family that emigrated from La Coruna, Spain, to Cuba and later to Argentina during the 19th century. Tomas de Veyga married Antonio Perez in 1833 and had a son, Juan de Veyga (born circa. 1837 in Havana, Cuba), who married Serafina Martínez Arenales in 1864. Serafina was the daughter of Francisco Martínez de la Rosa (1788-1860). Juan and Serafina's son Dr. Francisco de Veyga (1866-1948) married Margarita Peró (1870-1952).
