CHEPO, San Christoval de, a settlement
of the province and kingdom of Tierra Firme, and
government of Panama ; situate on the shore of
the river Mamoni ; is of a kind temperature, fer
tile and agreeable, though little cultivated. The
air is however so pure that it is resorted to by
invalids, and seldom fails of affording a speedy
relief. It has a fort, which is an esfacada, or sur
rounded with palisades, having a ditch furnished
with six small cannon, and being manned by a
detachment from the garrison of Panama, for the
purpose of suppressing the encroachments of the
infidel Indians of Darien. This territory was dis
covered by Tello Guzman in 1515, who gave it
the name of Chepo, through its Cazique Chepauri,
in 1679. It was invaded by the pirates Bartholo
mew Charps, John Guarlem, and Edward Bol
men, when the settlement Avas robbed and destroy

w. of of the rocks of Seguataneio. Between this

leagues extent, against which the sea breaks so
violently, that it is impossible for boats to land on
any part of it ; but there is a good anchorage for
shipping at a mile or two from the shore during
the fair season. The harbour of Chequetan is very
hard to be traced, and of great importance to
such vessels as cruise in these seas, being the most
secure harbour to be met with in a vast extent of
coast, yielding plenty of wood and water; and
the ground near it is able to be defended by a few
men. When Lord Anson touched here, the
place was uninhabited.)
