In 1851, Mr Lafone's interest in Lafonia (Falkland Islands) , as the place came to be called, was purchased for £30,000 by the Falkland Islands Company, which had been incorporated by charter in the same year. His name is closely linked to the development of La Teja neighborhood (where today a square is named for him).
He died in Buenos Aires.
