Bartolomé Napolitano

Brief Biography

The documentary record for Napolitano is very scarce. Bartolomé was present at the 1540 muster as a member of Diego López's company. He may also have returned from the Expedition to live in Colima, but that is not a certainty. Given his surname, it is highly likely that he was from Naples.
