History: Established in Spain in 1540, Jesuits made their first foundation in Peru in 1571. Thereafter, Jesuits of the Peruvian Province evangelized Native Americans along the east coast of La Florida from present-day Florida north to present-day Virginia, 1566-1571, which included Axaca station, Rappahannock River, present-day Virginia.
