I,too suspect this is true.The surnameRodrigue,Rodrigues,Rodriguez,Rodrique,with roots in Portugal,Barcelona,&the Barbados left Europe for eligious difference of opinion from Roman Catholicism,some fled leaving lands & possesion(those which were not confiscated in the name of the church)Name change or alteration is likely since an arm of Spain also extended to the colonies through missions.Canad in the l600's was one likely refuge.Some of these came to Louisiana.The canary islanders were not alone.
