La Fortuna

La Fortuna was established by Antonio Francisco Negroni Mattei (1794-1861), my 3rd Great Grandfather on my mother side.  Antonio Francisco arrived in Puerto Rico in 1822 and received his letter of naturalization in 1828.  He was also a sugar grower who during the mid 1800s owned  Hacienda Florida and Hacienda San Colombano in Yauco.

La Fortuna was inherited by his daughter Maria Luisa Negroni Rodriguez de la Seda who married Spanish immigrant from San Feliu de Guixols, Cataluña Francisco Lluch Pruneda.  They had three children Antonio, Maria Luisa and Adolfo Pio Lluch Negroni.  The hacienda has since remained in the hands of the Lluch descendants.
