      Parent of the Calonje. Spanish arrived in Granada Nicaragua in the mid-1800's. He held a number of important positions in the colonial Granada. So far we know that bred four sons: Francisco, Segundo, Joaquín and José de Jesús Calonje.

      In the book 'Tales Aong The Way from Granada, Nicaragua to Washington, DC' by Armando J. Calonje M. it mentions that Francisco Calonje " name can be traced to the province of Cataluña, Spain'.

      14 Feb. 2018 Per his last living Grandaughter, Luisa Amanda Calonje m. to Jose Manuel Mayorga, When ever she called him GGrandpa Francisco, he always corrected jer that his name was Grandpa Juan Francisco. He arrived to Bluefields, Nicaragua in the late 1800's. She believes that they went from Spain to France before they left. He came with his sons, of which two of them had married two Zuniga sisters and with them came their Mother, who with her parents took refuge in Spain during the terror. Her name was Constanza Crouston Bushe who married Don Anres Zuniga.

      He brought his family, mostly the sons, looking for greener pastures. First he Sent Don Jose Jesus Calonje along with his wife to Colombia, South America. Working with the Spanish Government. He did not find much of a future for the family so he left with his wife and two daughters on Route to Nicaragua. At this time The country was split in half. The Atlantic side which was called Zelaya, and run by a Dictator General Zelaya. The Pacific Coast was, was older, and was ran by Gen. Somoza. Bluefields, was still a small village, and pirates use to come there occasionally. So the old Calonje took most of the family to the Pacific side and was pleased to see lots of Colonial cities, like Granada, etc. Here he proceeded to find businesses for his sons. Amanda's father, one of the youngest sons was installed in a Tannery Business along with another brother. There were lots of Cattle ranches but no Tanneries. The rest of the Zuniga girls that went with him, married very well.

      When he had everyone well established. he returned to Spain where he died. Source: MaudeEH
