According to Plummer's The Shogun's Reluctant Ambassadors, in 1842, sea drifters from the Eijū-maru were picked up and by the Ensayo, a "Spanish pirate ship" with a Philippine crew. It was "carrying illegal goods between Spain or Mexico and Manila," and "[b]ecause it was on a 'wanted list', it could not enter any harbors freely." The Japanese men were treated badly and forced ashore on a beach in Baja California.
I found the description confusing. Of Pacific ports, only the Philippines were still Spanish. The Manila galleon system had been over for decades. During Mexico's first twenty years of independence, as far as I know, it didn't trade with East Asia. The Spanish were a minor presence in the Pacific even when they controlled a lot of its coastline.
Who owned Ensayo and what was it up to?
Who owned the ship Ensayo, and what were they doing near Baja California in 1842? - History
Roswell, GA, is a small community located north of Atlanta, GA. Founded as a cotton mill town by Roswell King in the middle of the 1830s, and incorporated February 16, 1854, Roswell today is the sixth largest city in Georgia and retains the friendliness and hospitality of a small southern town. Roswell has more parkland per capita than anywhere else in the metropolitan Atlanta area, with everything from ball fields, hiking trails and access to the Chattahoochee River.
Since most of the town's original homes and building survived the Civil War, the Roswell Historic District offers 640 acres of historic sites, vintage homes, churches, cemeteries, museums, and monuments. There are many homes, buildings, and churches listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
