Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Don Francisco de Paula Mar n (1774-1837) was a Spaniard who became influential in the early Kingdom of Hawaii. Often called Manini, Marini or other variations, he became a confidant of Hawaiian King Kamehameha I. Mar n acted as a jack-of-all-trades, sometimes even acting as a physician, probably without any formal education, and is credited with introducing many agricultural products. Mar n's early life is not generally known, but he probably was born November 28, 1774, in Jerez de la Frontera, an area of Spain near Cadiz. His father was Juan Mar n and mother was Mar a Grassi. It was likely he was an apprentice pilot on a ship associated with the Alessandro Malaspina expedition to Nootka Sound and Vancouver Island. At some point he deserted the Spanish and came aboard the ship of American John Kendrick.show more
