Excerpt from Vicente Anes Pincon

Vicente Yanez Pinzon was a native of Palos which is now known as Palos de la Frontiera and in his day was sometimes called Palos de Moguer. It is a small town situated on the left bank of the Rio Tinto about five miles from the sea in the county or condado of Niebla in Andalusia. Vicente Anes and his brothers Martin Alonso and Francisco Martin were pilotos who corresponded rather to first mates than to pilots for the piloto had to accompany the vessel during the whole voyage and superintend its navigation from beginning to end. There was yet a fourth Pinion, Diego Martin, a brother of the other three.

During the lawsuit between Diego Colon and the Crown, Vicente Anes stated in evidence in 1513 that he was above fifty years of age.1 He was therefore born in or prior to the year 1463. We know nothing of his early career prior to his voyage with Columbus but there can be little doubt that he was engaged in maritime pursuits from an early age. He probably accompanied his brother Martin Alonso in some subordinate capacity. We learn from the testimony of witnesses at the lawsuit already mentioned that Martin Alonso Pinion was regarded as an excellent captain, a good seaman and gifted in many ways. He had made voyages to Guinea and the Canary Islands and coasting voyages in the North Atlantic and in the Mediterranean as far as Naples.
