Cool, thanks, a lot Sam. I've just updated Family Search, the bits that I've been curating, with the names of Florencio's wife and parents-in-law. Thanks, again.

Found some entries below that give a timeline of the Cohens at Cambrian, including a murder / death. 

Kingston Gleaner 01 September 1876 p,2, co.2 Reuben Cohen witness in murder case on Cambria Plantation


The Murder case – man killed on Reuben Cohen’s property Kingston Gleaner 01 September 1876, col 2 
Plantation referred to as Cambry, Reuben’s son – Lorentio (Florencio) only speaks Spanish and gives evidence via translator.


1883
Notice denying rumour that Cambrian plantation heavily mortgaged to the Hon. George Solomon  Under Sale of Cambrian Plantation Notice Kingston Daily Gleaner 03 July 1883, p.2, col 2, para 9

May 1886  -    J Cohen Cambrian Plantation  listed as a cocoa grower Kingston Daily Gleaner 10 May 1886, p3, col.1 (under cocoa) see exhibitor 279 – must have been exhibiting at at teh Colonial and Indian Exhibiton
Kingston Daily Gleaner 10 May 1886, p.3, col.1 (see 279)  see also page 2


1898-1899 Bananas & COCOA being grown F Cohen Cambrians (Directory Entry) http://www.jamaicanfamilysearch.com/Samples/handbk2.htm
 
1905 The previous for sale auction ads previously listed

1906 & 1907  Dolphy was in posession between 23 May 1905-17 Jun 1906 when it was discovered that the plantation was ownly part owned.  The sale contract was recinded according to the court case in May – Jun 1907

?? sold sometime between Jun 1907 - July 1909 ??

July 23 1909 - in Kingston Daily Gleaner 23 July 1909 p.3, col. 2 (bottom) Joseph Brown charged with larceny growing coffee suckers the property of Mr F Delisser of Cambrians   

1910 Jamaica Directory shows owners of plantations Cambria owned by :
owner - Delisser F.   property name - Cambria   description of crop - Banana   occupier - Delisser F.  post office - Linstead
http://www.jamaicanfamilysearch.com/Members/1/1910d23.htm


1911 Cambrian for sale – no owners named in Kingston Gleaner 6 Sep 1911, p.11
Auction Sale at Cambrian plantation in Kingston Gleaner 26 June 1905, p4, Col 4 (under Auction sale under large ad ) – selling cattles, horses etc


1923 Cambrian for sale again lists prices of various properties within holding in Kingston Gleaner 27 January 1923, p16, col 2

Kingston Gleaner 07 October2017, p. 32, col.5  item 601 – Legal Notice relating to Title deeds of Cambrian. Owned by Roman Catholic Bishop of Jamaica


So looking at the timeline of the above events, the and sale of Cambria must have ocurred between 1906-1909.


Only found a Fanando Allando death aged 94 in Jamaica in 1958. I don't think it's your Fernando though.

Erato have you tried

http://cubacityhall.com/   although It seems very expensive and complicated to get birth certificates otherwise form Cuba as far as I can see,

https://cubangenclub.org/cpage.php?pt=143 Has some pages have a searchable pdf and other digitised books that you would have to manually search through spanish records in various parishes. Alternatively there is a ontact address on the page that you could email for advice.

There are also digitised parish registers that you could laboriously search through as above https://essss.library.vanderbilt.edu/islandora/object/essss%3A210

Assume you have already looked at
https://www.familysearch.org/search/collection/location/1927079?region=Cuba

Hope this helps
