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

(Capellanias 1692) Capellania for Francisco Covarrubias

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

Juan is not the father of Hernando. I will post Hernando Covarrubias ancestry later. The rest of the line is correct

1). --------Covarrubias

2) Hernando Covarrubias

3). Maria Covarrubias + Sebastian Martinez Leyva

4) Alonso Leyva Covarrubias + Maria Gutierrez de Hegas

5) Gaspar Covarrubias Egas + Margarita Quijada

6) Francisco Covarrubias Quijada

Pg 97 may help with the further genealogy

Dear Alex,
This book does confirm what I have for one of his ancestors. It is the other lines, Maria Covarrubias maternal lines where I found an ancestry that connects with a lot of my other research.

Thanks,
Rick

I have a question for everyone, hoping you all can provide some insight.

Currently I have in my tree Francisco Suarez de Ibarra, the elder, having married twice: 1st Maria Martinez del Castillo and 2nd Isabel Pimentel.

The elder also had a son, Francisco Suarez de Ibarra, the younger, who married Elena Illan de Vargas.

I assumed the younger was the son of Isabel Pimentel because she is stated as the abuela of Francisco and Elena's daughter, Maria in her baptismal record:

https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:9392-DJ99-TC?mode=g&i=20&wc=3JW2-PTL%3A171935001%2C182938601%2C1084037062&cc=1874591

However, I may have a new development. In a baptismal record from 1609 for Juana, right side second one down, states she was a slave of Francisco Suarez de Ibarra fue su padrino Francisco Suarez de Ibarra (el nino?):

https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:9392-2LSX-3G?mode=g&i=48&wc=3J64-BZS%3A171935001%2C182938601%2C1080814502&cc=1874591

Am I reading this right? Is saying el nino the same as the younger? This would make Francisco the son of Francisco and Maria Martinez del Castillo rather than Isabel Pimentel.

Furthermore, I have one other document confirming his mother, however reading it again makes me unsure. Could someone who understand spanish much better please take a look? Right side 4th and 5th lines looks like Isabel Pimentel states Francisco de Ibarra is the legitimate son of her husband:

Thank you all

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CSDL-8BZF?i=77&cat=198356

This document shows that Francisco Covarrubias and Diego Covarrubias were the children of Francisco Covarrubias, contador, and Maria Colio

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CSDL-8YQM?i=186&cat=198356

This document names Catalina Angulo y Figueroa Torres' parents as Lemure? de Torres and Geronima Angulo y Figueroa

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CSDL-69L1-4?i=540&cat=198356

This is I think Hernan Guerra's will naming his parents as Juan Guerra and Maria de Colio

Could someone please translate this for me?

FYI its page 25 of Francisco Covarrubias' Infomaciones

To me it reads as:

... Y como tales hijosdalgo fueron asi dados y tenidos en la ciudad de granada y sevilla donde fueron vecinos y en la villa de cobarrubias donde el dicho gaspar de cobarrubias era natural y la dicha Margarita Quijada en la villa de madrid donde era natural y en esta posesion les vieron estar sin oir ni ver cosa al contrario y en los hechos que en la ciudad de sevilla suele haber nunca les vieron pecar ni contribuir a sus abuelas en la villa de covarrubias y madrid por ser como es hijosdalgo y en esta posesion a estado y esta el dicho contador francisco covarrubias sin que los testigo ayan oido cosa en contraria teniendolo por tal hijodalgo digan lo que saben...

I might be off on a word or two as some of the abbreviations are unknown to me.

BTW, I noticed that you mention Catalina de Angulo. Her parents were Clemente de Torres and Geronima de Angulo y Figueroa.

In turn Geronima's parents were:

Pedro de Figueroa y Banuelos cc Beatriz de Angulo Montesinos

Pedro's parents were: Francisco de Figueroa and Ana Temino de Velasco y Banuelos

Beatriz's parents were: Alonso de Angulo Montesinos de ls Isla and Catalina de Lila Pereira

Alonso de Angulo's parents were: Alonso Martinez de Angulo and Juana Cervantes

Catalina's parents were: Juan Borallo Pereira and Beatriz Hernandez

These are families with deep roots in the antiguo Obispado de Michoacan. (Juan Borallo was a conquistador and one of the primeros pobladores of Michoacan)

The above information comes from the merits and limpieza de sangre of Pedro de Figueroa y Banuelos, priest, son of Pedro de Figueroa and Beatriz de Angulo Montesinos.
