Sebastian de Avalos cc Mariana de Castro

Hola prim@s,

Do any of you have any of the above mentioned couples in your lines? I have it documented that Gaspar and Alonso were brothers, and also that Gabriel and Sebastian were brothers. I think it's likely that all four are brothers, and I'm trying to compile enough info on each, to establish this theory. I also think it's possible that another brother is Baltasar de Avalos cc Juana Ruiz de Aldana.

¿Tendra alguien los mencionados en sus líneas ? Lo tengo documentado que Gaspar y Alonso eran hermanos, y también que Gabriel y Sebastián eran hermanos. Creo que es probable que los cuatro son hermanos y busco mas información sobre cada uno para establecer esta teoría. También creo que es posible que otro hermano es Baltasar de Avalos cc Juana Ruiz de Aldana.

Does anybody know if Gabriel de Avalos, who married Maria Quezada, is the same who married Augustina de Velasco?

¿Alguien sabe si Gabriel de Avalos, que era casado con María Quezada, es el mismo que se casó con Agustina de Velasco?

Gracias y saludos,
Manny Diez Hermosillo

Gabriel de Avalos LHTX-XTH cc Maria Quezada (m:26 NOV 1613 Santa Ma de los Lagos)

Sebastian de Avalos K87F-92K - cc Mariana de Castro

you probably have all this information. I worked on it in 2015 but somehow lost my way to others. Sebastian is my 9th greatgrandfather. I have him as Sebastian Balthazar.

A lot of records in San Luis Potosi, are not in Familysearch. I have been creating records from SLP, SLP (la cuidad), Mexico. If you need help just let me know.

Hi Simona,

Yes, I have those. I have a lot on these four Avalos, which I will post this weekend.

How do you descend from Sebastian de Avalos? He's my g8, I descend from his son, Augustin de Avalos cc Magdalena Ruiz, then, their daughter, Ysabel Ruiz de Villasenor, and her 2nd marriage to Francisco Sanchez de la Mejorada.

And yes, SLP Sagrario has not been indexed. Thank you for your offer, but I too have been dredging the same archives, logging baptisms and padrinos. I have pages of names...

Gracias y Saludos!
Manny Diez Hermosillo

Sebastian de Avalos was an arriero (muleteer), and they lived in Pozos, SLP. I have them with eight children:

1. Salvador de Avalos Castro, b. 08 Nov 1638, Sagrario SLP.
2. Augustin de Avalos Castro, b. 01 Oct 1640, San Francisco de Pozos, SLP; m. Magdalena Ruiz-Camarillo, 20 Mar 1661, San Francisco de Pozos, SLP.
3. Francisca de Avalos Castro, b. 19 Oct 1642, San Francisco de Pozos, SLP.
4. Geronima de Avalos Castro, b. 24 Oct 1644, San Francisco de Pozos, SLP; m. Manuel de Luna, 10 Apr 1663, San Francisco de Pozos, SLP.
5. Maria de Avalos Castro, b. 24 Mar 1647, San Francisco de Pozos, SLP.
6. Josepha de Avalos Gatica, b. 31 May 1649, Sagrario, SLP.
7. Juan de Avalos, d. 01 Nov 1681, Sagrario, SLP.
8. Sebastian de Avalos Castro, b. 13 Feb 1655, San Francisco de Pozos, SLP.

Sebastian de Avalos died and was buried 11 May 1658, in San Francisco de Pozos, SLP. No testo por no tener de que.

I don’t have Sebastian’s nor Mariana’s ancestry, but from the 09 Jun 1712 dispensa for Nicolas Castaneda and Maria Gomez in Pinos, Zac, we know that Sebastian was brother of Gabriel de Avalos cc Maria Quezada. The testigos in this dispensa mistakenly call him “Baltasar de Avalos,” but as far as I know, he never used “Baltasar.” My guess is that the testigos confused his with Baltasar de Avalos of Lagos, who married Juana Ruiz, and who might be his brother.

On 19 Sep 1639, in Pozos SLP, Sebastian and Mariana were padrinos for Gaspar, son of Gaspar de Avalos and Luisa Quezada, revealing a connection between these two.

I descend from their granddaughter, Ysabel de Avalos, who changed her name to Ysabel Ruiz de Villaseñor, after she married in 1683. I haven’t seen any of her other family members using this surname, but I have seen “De Avalos Villaseñor,” used by Gabriel de Avalos’ daughter, Ysabel de Avalos Villaseñor, who married Diego Carrion. “de Avalos Villaseñor” appears in parts of SLP, Guanajuato and in Aguascalientes, though I don’t know how and if they’re linked.

Members of the family would use the compound surname “Garcia de Avalos,” which I haven’t seen used by any of the other lines.

I have Gaspar and Luisa with twelve children:

a. Petrona de Avalos Quezada, c. 22 May 1624, Santa Maria de Lagos, Jal; likely the same who married Diego del Castillo, of Armadillo, SLP.
b. Andrea de Avalos Quezada, c. 22 May 1624, Santa Maria de Lagos, Jal.
c. Luisa de Avalos Quezada, c. 22 May 1624, Santa Maria de Lagos, Jal.
d. Maria de Avalos Quezada, c. 22 May 1624, Santa Maria de Lagos, Jal, m. Luis del Castillo, 06 Feb 1654, Santa Isabel, Armadillo, SLP.
e. Nicolas Garcia de Avalos Quezada, c. 22 May 1624, Santa Maria de Lagos, Jal; d. 28 Mar 1657, Sagrario, SLP; m. Ysabel del Castillo, 23 Feb 1654, Santa Isabel, Armadillo, SLP.
f. Catalina de Avalos Quezada, d. 09 Oct 1651, San Matias, Pinos, Zac; m. Tomas de Carrion, 01 May 1642, San Matias, Pinos, Zac.
g. Ysabel de Avalos Quezada, m. Geronimo de Arroyo, 7 Dec 1646, San Matias, Pinos, Zac.
h. Juana de Avalos Quezada, m. Bartolome del Castillo, 03 Aug 1654, Santa Isabel, Armadillo, SLP.
i. Mariana de Avalos Quezada, b. 04 Jul 1638, in Sagrario, San Luis Potosi (vecinos de Lagos).
j. Gaspar Garcia de Avalos Quezada, b. 19 Sep 1639, San Francisco de Pozos, SLP (padrinos Sebastian de Avalos and Mariana de Castro); d. 28 Mar 1657, Sagrario, SLP.
k. Diego de Avalos Quezada, b. 01 May 1642, San Matias, Pinos, Zac. Padrinos Diego Carrion e Ysabel de Avalos su mujer (daughter of Gabriel de Avalos & Maria Quezada).
l. Juan de Avalos Quezada, b. 01 Mar 1644, Santa Isabel, Irapuato, Gto.

Gaspar and Luisa confirmed 5 children in 1624, in Lagos, so they were likely married around 1612-1613, also in Lagos. As can be seen, Gaspar and Luisa moved around a lot: during the 1640’s, they lived in Sierra de Pinos, off and on, also spending some time in far-off Irapuato, Gto. Around 1651, they would move to Armadillo, SLP.

I recently found documentation confirming Gaspar de Avalos as the brother of Alonso de Avalos cc Catarina de Orosco. Gaspar de Avalos also had contact with Sebastian de Avalos, as well as with Ysabel de Avalos, daughter of Gabriel de Avalos and Maria Quezada. I think it likely that Luisa Quezada is the sister of Maria Quezada, and that they married the brothers around the same time, and in Lagos.

Hi Manny,

Unfortunately, I don't have any information on these families and haven't really done too much research since starting school, but, I do descend from Gabriel de Avalos and Maria de Mendoza/Quezada who are my 11th great grandparents. I do agree with your theory that Gaspar, Gabriel, Alonso, and Sebastian are brothers. I'm not sure about Baltasar, but it makes sense he might be too. I'm curious though, I have an Avalos that I haven't found parents for and am wondering if in your research you've come across a Juana de Avalos aka Juana de Villasenor. I'm estimating she was born sometime between 1650 and 1670. She was married to Francisco de Calderon. Their daughter Leogarda de Villasenor aka Leogarda de Calderon married Joseph Diaz de Leon aka Joseph Diaz de Sotomayor in 1709.

Chris

Sebastian de Avalos + Mariana de Castro

Augustine de Avalos y Magdalena Ruiz Camarillo

Mathias Gomes Sotomayor +Ysabel Avalos (Ysabel matched with ur info and others on ancestry)

Joseph Gomes +Maria Francisca Cardenas (I did not continue on Familysearch gave up)

Maria Rita Gomez de Ruelas +Julian Delgado Gallegos

This is what I have in my line.

I have Alonso de Avalos and Catalina de Orosco with ten children:

a. Francisco de Avalos Orosco, c. 22 May 1624, Santa Maria de Lagos, Jal; m. Menosa Melendez.
b. Maria de Avalos Orosco, c. 22 May 1624, Santa Maria de Lagos, Jal.
c. Juana de Avalos Orosco, c. 22 May 1624, Santa Maria de Lagos, Jal
d. Leonor de Avalos Orosco, c. 22 May 1624, Santa Maria de Lagos, Jal
e. Joseph de Avalos Orosco, b. 1625, Santa Maria de Lagos, Jal.
f. Alonso de Avalos Orosco, b. 05 Aug 1628, Santa Maria de Lagos, Jal.
g. Nicolas de Avalos Orosco, b. 1629, Santa Maria de Lagos, Jal.
h. Juan de Avalos Orosco, b. 1634, Santa Maria de Lagos, Jal; d. 28 Mar 1657, San Luis Potosi.
i. Catalina de Orosco, b. 1635, Santa Maria de Lagos, Jal.
j. Geronimo Aparisio de Avalos Orosco, b. 1637, Santa Maria de Lagos, Jal; d. 28 Mar 1657, San Luis Potosi.

Four of their children were confirmed in 1624, so Alonso and Catalina were probably married around 1614. This family group appears in the 1649 Padron for Jalostotitlan, living on their estancia 5 leagues from town. Living with them were their children, Joseph, Nicolas, Juan, Catalina, Aparisio and Francisco, and Francisco’s wife, Menosa Melendez.

Around 1651, this family would move to the jurisdiction of Armadillo, SLP; they owned a ranch called “El Ojo de Bague,” located in Laguna de Santo Domingo, between Armadillo and Rio Verde, on el camino de Guasteca. Alonso de Avalos died before Feb 1657.

Chris,

Im related to Gabriel de Avalos and Maria de Quezada too. which of their children are you related to.

Danny C. Alonso

This is the couple I have the least information on. We know they were married (velados) 26 Nov 1613, Santa Maria de Lagos, Jal. Maria Quezada is likely a sister of Luisa de Quezada y Mendoza (and who might be daughters of Alonso Quezada cc Juana Bautista Sanchez de Mendoza - anybody?). By 1625, Gabriel and Maria were living in Sierra de Pinos.

I have them with three children:

1. Ysabel de Avalos Villaseñor Quezada, b. 22 Feb 1616, Santa Maria de Lagos, Jal, d. 17 Oct 1649, Pinos, Zac; m. Diego Carrion Tremiño.
2. Maria de Avalos Quezada, b. 09 Sep 1618, Santa Maria de Lagos, Jal.
3. Joseph de Avalos Quezada, b. 1625, San Matias, Pinos, Zac.

And then they drop off the map.

On 26 Jul 1639, a Gabriel de Avalos and Augustina de Velasco baptized Nicolas, in Sagrario, SLP; my first thought is, Maria Quezada died and Gabriel remarried. Gaspar de Avalos and Luisa Quezada baptized Mariana the previous 04 Jul 1638, also in Sagrario, SLP, so they were living in the area. It’s also possible that this Gabriel is their son.

I also found a Gabriel de Avalos and Ysabel de Orosco, baptizing Andres, in Irapuato, Gto, 28 Nov 1643. Red flag: Gaspar and Luisa baptized Juan in Irapuato, the next 01 Mar 1644. I have a hunch that this is the same Gabriel de Avalos and Augustina de Velasco, and that she is using an alias, because Augustina de Velasco died a widow and was buried 04 Jul 1660, in Jalostotitlan. The reason I think she was using an alias is because the partida says the parents were “españoles del carcel”: they were in jail. This fits into the M/O of this family, as I’ll explain in coming posts.

Thanks for sharing!
Manny Diez Hermosillo

Manny,

I had a question about some of the Avalos that also use the name Villasenor? do you know if theyre connected to the conquistador Juan de Villasenor or how they might be connected to him.
