Biography

Chief ROBERT HENRY CLARENCE, last Hereditary Chief of the Mosquito Nation 1891/1894 (1908), born about 1872, he succeeded his cousin in 1891, but less than three years later, on 12 February 1894, the Nicaraguans with 300 soldiers forcibly took possession of Bluefields, while the inhabitants of the town were asleep. The soldiers seized the government buildings and the archives of the Mosquito Reservation, and raised the Nicaraguan flag. The Nicaraguan commissioner, General Carlos Lacayo, gave as his excuse for attacking Bluefields that the Mosquito were being misgoverned by Jamaican blacks. Chief Robert Henry Clarence and his government were declared rebels, he was rescued by the British and carried on board a British man-of-war to Puerto Limon, Costa Rica, and then to Jamaica, where he was given asylum by the British and a pension for life. He died in the Public General Hospital of Kingston, following an operation, in January 1908. (http://members.iinet.net.au/~royalty/states/southamerica/mosquito.html, 2014-09-23)
