Does anyone know the first name of Diego de Ordaz's lieutenant Martinez?  The shipwrecked lieutenant who supposedly was taken to El Dorado.

His name was Juan Martinez, and he had been a munitions master on board a Spanish ship exploring the Caroni River that branched off from the Orinoco at San Thome. His group headed deeper into the jungle, but the journey was aborted when its gunpowder stores exploded. Martinez was left behind in an open canoe as punishment for the accident.
