Biographical information

romanillos2002, p. 22: “Tomás Armengol had his house/workshop in calle Jueus, Palma de Mallorca. He repaired instruments and made citterns, guitars, guitarrones, lutes, viols and violins. He was married to Joana Farrer, and died without descendents. His workshop was left to his sister Praxedis Armengol. The inventory of his goods and workshop was done by the notary Antoni Socies in 1591, and his belongings were auctioned in May and June of that year. Many of the instruments, strings and several tools were bought by Joan Farrer.(1) [see Appendix No. 16].”
