Mr/Ms Hernandez ---------(sorry I don't know your name, you did not sign your post),

I checked Family Search for all the Villalpandos/Vialpandos listed for Spain and they all originated in Valladolid, not in Cadiz. The only entry for a Vialpando for Cadiz is one submitted by someone in New Mexico, and not from an official baptism record. So, I think they mistook Jerez de la Frontera for Jerez, Zacatecas.

I did see a tree submitted to Family Search by someone in NM that listed a Juan Vialpando's (married to a Romero) birthplace as "Villa de Leon", not Villa de Conil. Is that Juan your ancestor? What other document do you have?

I did not find a Villa de Leon in Zacatecas. Leon is in Guanajuato, and on the Family Search list there are dozens of Vialpando/Villalpando there starting in the early 1600s. It looks like the first Vialpandos in Mexico arrived in the early 1600s in Mexico City (Mexico State) and moved to Puebla, next to Mexico state, then moved up north to the states of Guanajuato, Aguascalientes and Jalisco. There are a few listed for Durango and Zacatecas, but not too many. I don't see them listed for any other states, except New Mexico.

My husband's Villalpandos were from Aguascalientes and Jalisco in the 1600s, and the state of Guanajuato is right next door, to the east. The city of Leon (villa de Leon) is close to other major cities of Jalisco and to the west and north is Aguascalientes. Farther to the west is Zacatecas.

Maybe way, way back your Vialpando lines are connected to my husband's Villalpandos.

I don't know the names of your Vialpandos so I couldn't look for them in the records for Leon, Guanajuato or Jerez, Zacatecas.

I have a translation of a marriage document that was done in 1694 that the name of the Villa was not totally legible...it says Juan de Villa el pando native of La Villa de Con(il?). I have cousins that our great great grandfathers were brothers that have reserched for many years also and most reserchers have interpreted this as La Villa de Leon...I am new on here so have not yet posted my ged.

Yes that tree on family search is my line...I can upload the actual marriage document so you can take a look but is hard to read.

Yes we have several people here in this group who are good at reading documents from the 17th century. I would like to see it too.

Do you have information on Tomas Villalpando who married (1) Maria de Vargas (m 1677), and later (2) Maria de Jaen (or de Sotelo) (m 1690), in Aguascalientes? There are several children by the first wife, and numerous others by the second. Apparently he is from Leon, Guanajuato.

Maria de Vargas was also known as Maria de Heredia. I have not identified her parents yet, but
is probably related to Angela and Maria de Heredia daughters of Alonso de Heredia and
Antonia de Caceres who later married Bartolome Garcia de Leon.

Please email a copy of the marriage, all this Villalpando talk is interesting me.

I too have Villalpando on my mother's side. I'm still not sure where they came from but they appear
in Sierra de Pinos in 1751 where they baptize a daughter. They are linked to Matehuala, SLP and
Guadalajara, Jal. Very probably they were merchants/commercialist.

My 6th great grandfather Capt. Joseph Victor de Camino y Trasgallo married Josefa Gertrudis
Fernandez de Villalpando, she was baptized in San Matias, Sierra de Pinos, Zac on 16 Jan 1762
and married in the same place 30 Nov 1783. She was daughter of Joseph Nolasco Fernandez de
Villalpando, (I suspect he was a merchant and a peninsular) and Maria Manuela Mendez-Hidalgo
who appears to be linked to Santa Maria del Rio, SLP.

Josefa's brother Joseph Maria Fernandez de Villalpando worked closely with Francisco de Fagoaga,
I marques del Apartado in Mexico City and Puebla.

All this Villalpando talk recently has sparked my interest in following this line that I know so little about.

any help is appreciated.

.

Where do I go on the site to upload it?

Amalia Hernandez Arias

I uploaded a doc on my Vialpando line. All are from New Mexico except Juan de Villa el Pando that married Urusla Olaes and his son Juan de Villalpando that is supposed to be from Jerez.

Amalia Hernandez Arias

George,

No, I don't know about a Tomas Villalpando. I only recently found out that my husband's gggg-grandparents, Nicolas Garcia and Maria de San Juan were not Indians, they were espanoles, and Maria de San Juan did have a surname that the records didn't always include. I found so many couples named Nicolas Garcia and Maria de San Juan, and I picked the wrong one. She used several surnames---Trillo, Villalpando, Belasco, etc. We finally found out that she was born to Antonio Trillo and Mariana Villalpando in Aguascalientes. Mariana's parents were Diego Villalpando and Ysabel Losano de Gardea. Mariana had siblings named Gertrudis, Joseph and Christobal, but no Tomas, not that I have found. I didn't find any of my husband's in Leon, Guanajuato.

The reason I was checking the Family Search indexes for Vialpando/Villalpando/Billalpando in various states in Mexico is that one of our members wanted to know where Villa de Leon was, and I saw on the index that most of the Vialpando/Villalpando originated in Mexico City, then Puebla, then went north to Guanajuato, Aguascalientes, and only a few to Zacatecas and Durango. There are dozens of Vialpandpo/Villalpando in the lists for Leon, Guanajuato.

Have you checked the archives for 18th century New Mexico? I didn't know there were so many Vialpandos there, I had only looked in Mexico. There are lots in Spain in the Valladolid records, and the Villalpando there is between that Leon (Zaragoza?) and Valladolid. There is also a Villa de Pando in Uruguay near Leon de Canelones.

Oh, by the way, thank you a million times for extracting those IMs from Aguascalientes. I found many of my husband's ancestors there. I can't read the images due to my eyesight and unfamiliarity with that script and language and abbreviations.
