In 1715 Banny Benny Barton and his krewe of misfits made their way up the Saint Juan s river to avoid capture from the Spanish. They had just looted a Spanish ship called Urca de Lima, which had sunk during a hurricane of the coast of Florida.
The tale is they had to bury their booty to escape the Spanish. Now we celebrate this blunder of loot on the shores of Lake Monroe, in an area now called Sanford.
