Juan de Bolas originally Juan Lubolo (??-1664) was the first chief of the Jamaican Maroons. The English named two rivers and a mountain after him to commemorate his assistance in expelling the Spaniards from the island and capturing hostile maroons.
The English appointed him Colonel of the Black Militia and guaranteed his Palenque land and liberties "for ever".
Juan de Bolas was killed in an ambush by an unaligned Palenque in 1664.
