Scarce document related to the estate of Manuel de Guirior, former Viceroy of Peru.

José Antonio de Areche (?–1788), as the appointed visitador or royal inspector, arrived in Peru in 1777. The difference between him and the Viceroy Manuel de Guirior (1708–1788) arose immediately concerning the extent of authorities. Their conflict culminated with the dismissal of Viceroy Guirior upon the charges brought by Areche. The quarrel went on after Guirior went back to Spain, and eventually, he was acquitted of the charges but only after his death.

The present document, Dated in San Ildefonso, October 6, 1785, is a summary of the case, and it relates to Viceroy Guirior’s “residencia” taken by the Spanish colonial functionary, Fernando Márquez de la Plata.

Extremely scarce, we could trace only 2 copies in institutional holding, both in the Biblioteca Nacional de España.
