My Fajardos are from Puerto Rico. This was an aristocratic family with the noble titles of "Conde de Remotti" and "Marques de la Plata". They were originally from Venezuela with the additional surname of Fajardo y Lara. In Puerto Rico, they owned a sugar plantation called "La Eureka'. There is still an old "Marques" that lives in the ruins of the plantation. I am the great- great grand-daughter of the original plantation family!
