This research work addresses the formation of a society in frontier areas during the period of consolidation of Transatlantic relations. The Portuguese community established in the Canary Islands and their transboundary networks in the Ocean have been analysed from the study of notarial documentation and insular council in order to understand the process of formation of a complex and exogenous island identity within the limits of the Hispanic Monarchy, whose origin is found in a social contract between locals and foreigners.
