Uayamón De Campeche
The Uayamon Ranch was founded during the last decade of the 16th century and was dedicated to the raising of cows and pigs. We know that from 1685 it was plundered, as happened to other ranches in the area, as well as to the city of Campeche, by the pirates Graff and Grammont. Uayamon Ranch was the property of Don Francisco de Cicero, a colonel and commander of the "Milicia Write" in 1792.
Uayamon continued to operate as a ranch without much change through the end of the 18th century as official records of 1779 tell us. In the 19th century, Uayamon was converted into a hacienda and was then sold to the son of a personal friend, Jose Segundo Carvajal, a colonel of engineering and commander of its forces. At the beginning of the '70s in that century, the hacienda passed into the hands of Don Rafael Carvajal Iturralde.
Uayamon then became one of the most important haciendas in the state of Campeche, due to the variety of it production, which included the raising of livestock, the cultivation of corn and sugar cane, "palo de tinte" (wood used for dye), and of course, the production of henequen. In 1869, its population had grown to 35 workers. By 1877, Uaymon had the second most territory of any hacienda in Campeche State, with an area of over nine leagues, and achieved its maximum development under another of its owners, don Fernando Carvajal Estrada.
