Saint Martin de
Porres booklet



Martin was born of John de Porres, a Spanish nobleman and
Knight of the Order of Alcantara, and a black free woman, Anna

Velazquez. Martin's
father was not very happy to find his child
was black.
He did not want to be connected with the child in any way. As a matter of
fact, on the baptismal record there was

no mention of the
father at all. The Baptismal certificates read
only
"Martin, son of an unknown father." But some years later,

he officially
acknowledged Martin as being his son. We're not
sure
if John ever married Anna Velazquez. If he did, he didn't treat her very
well. He spent most of his time in other countries, leaving Anna and the
children, Martin and his sister Joan to fend for themselves. Though Martin
was not from a poor background, you would not have known it by the way he
and his family lived. They were always at least borderline poverty, and
sometimes full-blown poverty.
