this could very well be «marannes» who were jewish people from Spain and Portugal, who officially converted to catholicism to evade the Inquisition but remained faithful to judaism. (I do not know the English equivalent)

There is a history of Marannes within the canadian society; at the beginning of the Colony, only Catholics were admitted.

They may have called themselves «Conversos» not to reveal their religious origins.
