I believe I have connected the descendants of Geronimo Sanchez de Porras and Mariana Suarez de Ibarra to Francisco de Covarrubias y Leyva , Contador, son of Gaspar Covarrubias and Margarita de Quijada and Maria de Colio, grandaughter of Conquistador Diego Gomez de Colio and Catalina de la Torre.

There are many documents that must be gone through to get the whole story on the family. At this point I have gone through:
(Capellanias 1649-1851) Capellanias for Pedro Gomez de Colio and Nicolas de Ibarra, images 5 - 214
https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:9392-DL9Z-9Y?mode=g&i=4&wc=3JWY-W3D%3A171935001%2C171974101%2C172319701%3Fcc%3D1874591&cc=1874591

I need to go through:
Capellania for Hernan Guerra de Colio (which seems pertinent)
https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:9392-687R-C?i=196&wc=3JW1-HZQ%3A171935001%2C171974101%2C172426401%3Fcc%3D1874591&cc=1874591

For ease of discussion I'm going begin with Geronimo Sanchez de Porras (son of Geronimo Sanchez de Porras and Leonor de Hermosillo) who was married to Mariana Suarez de Ibarra (daughter of Alferez Mayor Francisco Suarez de Ibarra and Elena Illan de Vargas)

Here is what I believe to be the proper lineage (I say believe because I have never read so many conflicting testimonies in my 4 years of genealogy, the probably conflict because information is provided about people who lived 150 - 200 yrs before some witnesses):

For the Colio side:

Elena Illan de Vargas
daughter of Mariana de Covarrubias y Colio (spouse Melchor Vargas Machuca)
daughter of Maria de Colio (spouse Francisco Covarrubias y Leyva, contador)
daughter of Maria de Colio (spouse Juan Guerra)
daughter of Diego Garcia de Colio and Catalina de la Torre

For the Covarrubias side:

Elena Illan de Vargas
daughter of Mariana de Covarrubias y Colio (spouse Melchor Vargas Machuca)
daughter of Francisco Covarrubias y Leyva, contador (spouse Maria de Colio)
son of Gaspar de Covarrubias and Margarita Quijada

So heres how I put it all together

Capellanias 1649-1851 Img 12 teaches Pedro Gomez de Colio (Arcediano) is the son Diego Garcia de Colio and Catalina de la Torre, both from Spain

Capellanias 1649-1851 Imgs 70 - 72 teaches Nicolas de Ibarra is is the son of Alferez Mayor Francisco Suarez de Ibarra and Elena Vargas, daughter of Melchor Vargas and Juana de Colio, daughter of Diego de Colio, brother of Pedro Gomez de Colio (very different than the lineage above)

For the baptism of Mariana Suarez de Ibarra, Guadalajara 1666 (searchable in FS), Elena uses the surname Covarrubias

Capellanias 1649-1851, Imgs 12,39 appears Pedro Vargas Machuca son of Captain Melchor Vargas Machuca and Mariana de Colio y Covarrubias. Unfortunately the lineage to the Colio's for Mariana is not disclosed thus far in any documents. I believe Mariana is the Juana Colio referred to in Capellanias 1649-1851 Imgs 70 - 72 Nicolas de Ibarra's lineage.

Pedro Vargas is baptized in Guadalajara 1617 (searchable in FS) to Melchor Vargas and Mariana Covarrubias. I believe Pedro Vargas is Elena Illan de Vargas' sister. The latest Mariana would have been born then approx 1577-1601.

Throughout Capellanias 1649-1851 and Capellanias 1692 children of Francisco Covarrubias and Maria de Colio utilize the surname Colio y Covarrubias. Children discloses are Alfonsa, Diego married to Catalina Angulo y Figuroa, and Francisco, a priest. A baptism
for Alfonsa can be found in Guadalajara 1600, daughter of Francisco Covarrubias and Maria de Colio. This would place her mothers birth in a similar range (1560 - 1584) as Mariana de Colio y Covarrubias spouse of Melchor Vargas Machuca. Therefore Mariana de Colio y Covarrubias must be a daughter for Francisco Covarrubias and Maria de Colio.

Smooth sailing from here. In the Informaciones: Francisco Covarrubias (Contador) Pg 1, states Francisco is married to Maria de Colio, granddaughter of Diego Garcia de Colio, conquistador. Pgs 31 - 32 state Francisco is the son of Gaspar de Covarrubias and Margarita Quijada. Maria de Colio, his wife, is the daughter of Juan Guerra and Maria de Colio, this second Maria is daughter of Diego Garcia de Colio and Catalina de la Torre.

That essentially sums up how I concluded the lineage. Further proof Capellanias 1649-1851 Img 13 Pedro Gomez de Colio states Francisco de Covarrubias y Colio is related to him via his sister, Maria de Colio. So any tie with Covarrubias comes from Pedro's sister Maria, and not Diego, as the Nicolas de Ibarra lineage says.

Here is some additional proof that Elena Illan de Vargas probably did not descend from Diego Colio, brother of Pedro Gomez de Colio:

Capellanias 1692 Img 66 Diego de Herrera stated Maria de Colio is his grandmother, sister of Pedro Gomez de Colio.

In Meritos: Diego de Herrera, Diego's parents are Diego de Herrera and Catalina de Colio Alarcon. He is the great grandson of Diego Garcia de Colio.

Capellanias 1649-1851 Img 161 stated Diego de Colio el Mozo married Ines Ramirez de Alarcon, Diego is the son of Diego Garcia and Catalina de la Torre. Since Diego Herrera's mothers surname is Colio Alarcon, I believe Diego de Herrera actually descends from Diego de Colio, brother of Pedro Gomez de Colio and Maria de Colio. Any use of the surname Covarrubias must come from this Maria de Colio.

I have pages of notes from the aformentioned documents. There are loads of inconsistencies. It looks like the priests copied prior incorrect information and it propogated from about 100 years. Also contained in the documents is lots of information pertaining to this family. So far I have gathered that Diego Garcia de Colio and Catalina de la Torre had as children at least Maria de Colio (Juan Guerra), Catalina de la Torre, la Moza, Pedro Gomez de Colio (Arcediano) and Diego de Colio, el Mozo, (Ines Ramirez de Alarcon).

Some names in the documents include:

Isabel Tovar, primo hermano de Diego Covarrubias y Colio, son of Francisco Covarrubias and Maria Colio
Francisco, Diego, and Alfonza Covarrubias son of Francisco Covarrubias and Maria Colio
Francisco Guerra, sobrino Pedro Gomez de Colio
Bartolome Perez de Colio, mi sobrino, son of Rodrigo Gomez Parada and Bernardina de Colio, mi sobrina, relative to Pedro Gomez de Colio
mi sobrina, Agueda Guerra, y su hija, Isabel Tovar, relative to Pedro Gomez de Colio
Alonzo Sanchez Muniz son of the same and Francisca de la Torre, daughter of Diego Rodriguez Ponce and Leonor Ortiz de la Torre, daughter of Catalina de la Torre, sister of Pedro Gomez de Colio
Juan (Berrete Eraso?) son of Maria Guijaro and Martin Berrete? son of Ana Rodriguez Gutierrez daughter of Joseph Rodriguez Gutierrez and Petrona Rodriguez Ponce also daughter of Diego Rodriguez Ponce and Leonor Ortiz de la Torre
Francisco Covarrubias son of Diego Covarubbias and Catalina Angulo y Figueroa
and much more Covarubbias descendants on Capellanias 1649-1851 Imgs 105 - 114, 124 - 129, 134 - 143, 161 - 174, 178 - 212

Diego Covarrubias y Leyva Egas and Gaspar Covarrubias y Leyva Egas are brothers I just posted some of my research on the Covarrubias family under the thread on Toribio Hernandez Arellanos genealogy

What time period and location are we talking for the couple? Early 1600's they would be in Guadalajara to connect to Francisco Suarez de Ibarra and Maria Martinez del Castillo or Isabel Pimentel.

My wife and I both descend from Pedro Joseph Covarrubias. I descend from his first marriage to Maria Manuela Gonzalez Rubio and she descends from his second wife Maria Lizarreras. ( I have seen Maria's surname spelled different ways)

Pedro Joseph is the son of Josef Antonio Covarribias and Ynes Guadalupe Gomez de Mendoza

Josef Antonio Covarrubias is the son of Jose Covarrubias (Junior) and his second wife Leonor Sanchez de Porras on 20/Aug/1725

Leonor is the daughter of Cap.Alejandro Sanchez de Porras and Francisca Alvarez-Tostado de. Luna

Jose Covarrubias (Junior) is the son of Jose Covarrubias (senior) and Leonor Hermosillo (daughter of Pedro Franco de Paredes and Leonor Hermosillo

My brickwall is that I do not have any parents for Jose Covarrubias (senior). I have him b. Circa 1659 and married about 1684 in Jalostotitlan Jalisco, Mexico.

Can anyone help me with Jose Covarrubias's ancestry?

Thanks,
R.A.Ricci

Antonia de Covarrubias Leyva, niece to Gaspar Covarrubias is an ancestor to:
"Santa Maria de las Maravillas de Jesus"

María de las Maravillas was born in Madrid, Spain, on 4 November 1891, the daughter of Luis Pidal y Mon, the Marquis of Pidal, and Cristina Chico de Guzmán y Muńoz. At the time her father was the Spanish Ambassador to the Holy See, and she grew up in a devout Catholic family.

María made a vow of chastity at the age of five and devoted herself to charitable work. After coming into contact with the writings of St John of the Cross and St Teresa of Jesus, she felt called to become a Discalced Carmelite. Her father, whom she had faithfully assisted when he became ill, died in 1913, and her mother was reluctant to accept her daughter's decision to enter the Carmelite monastery.

However, on 12 October 1919, María did enter the Discalced Carmelites of El Escorial in Madrid. She made her simple vows on 7 May 1921.

Before her final profession on 30 May 1924, Sr María had already received a special call from God to found the Carmel of Cerro de los Ángeles, and the foundation was inaugurated on 31 October 1926 with three other Carmelites. This was the first of the series of Teresian Carmelite Monasteries that she would establish, according to the Rule and Constitutions of the Discalced Carmelites. María was not being called to found a new order or to "branch off" from the Discalced Carmelites - she herself was very careful in pointing this out; she only sought to live deeply and to transmit the spirit and ideals of St Teresa of Jesus and St John of the Cross.

On 28 June 1926, the Bishop of the Diocese of Madrid-Alcalá appointed her prioress of the new monastery. In 1933 she established another foundation in Kottayam, India, and from this Carmel other foundations were started in India.

Her role as prioress would be permanent in the various monasteries she founded throughout her life, notwithstanding the natural aversion and sense of inadequacy she felt in accepting positions of responsibility. María's spirit of obedience and love for the Church and for her Carmelite sisters, however, gave her the strength and diligence to carry out this duty with love.

Mother Maravillas was often criticized for the poverty of the convents she founded; charges were made that they were "not solid", small in size and unfurnished, with bare walls on which hung chosen Bible verses or writings of the Carmelite saints. She would reply, however, that "it is not our concern to plant a seed, since the Discalced Carmelites have already been founded. Even if our convents collapse, nothing will happen".

During the Spanish Civil War, the nuns of Cerro de los Ángeles lived in an apartment in Madrid. In September 1937 another Carmel in the Batuecas, Salamanca, was founded. In 1939 the monastery of Cerro de los Ángeles was restored. Even amid enormous deprivation, Mother Maravillas instilled courage and happiness, always being an admirable example to her daughters.

But she also remained a mystery even to the nuns closest to her, since only her spiritual directors knew the "dark night of the soul" that she lived throughout her life, which kept her in profound spiritual aridity and trials, and made total faith and abandonment to the will of God her guide.

In the following years, foundations were established in other parts of Spain. Mother Maravillas also restored and sent nuns to her original Carmel of El Escorial and to the venerable monastery of the Incarnation in Avila.

In order to unite the monasteries founded by her and others that had the same finality, she founded the Association of St Teresa, which received official approval from the Holy See in 1972.

On 8 December 1974, the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, Mother Maravillas was anointed and received Holy Communion. On 11 December, surrounded by her community in the Carmel of La Aldehuela, Madrid, she died. At the time of her death, her sisters report that Mother Maravillas kept repeating the phrase: "What happiness to die a Carmelite!". She was beatified by Pope John Paul II on 10 May 1998.

Amazing stuff your posting.

I'd like to clarify Francisco Covarrubias was married twice, first to Maria Ramirez Bermudez (hl Martin Bermudo and Catalina Asuna), with whom he came to the new world with, and then Maria Colio (hl Juan Guerra and Maria Colio).

Alex

I am assuming that I posted a mistake and that Francisco Covarrubias was married at least twice. I believe Maria Bermudez and Maria Colio are two different people. My research focused on his ancestors and not on him so I do not know much of his wives or children.

Sorry about the mistake,
R.A. Ricci
