Francisco Hurtado del Pino

Francisco Hurtado del Pino was a Spanish colonial officer who served as the first and only Intendant of Chiloé between 1784 and 1789.[1] In 1786 Viceroy of Peru Teodoro de Croix sent Hurtado del Pino navy officer José de Moraleda y Montero to aid him making accurate maps of the archipelago.[2] Eventually Moraleda would stay in Chiloé until 1796 long after the intendantship of hurtado del Pino.[2] After Hurtado's term ended the Intendancy of Chiloé was abolished and lieutenant colonel Francisco Garos took charge of the affairs in Chiloé Archipelago.[1]
