I descend from Juan Perez de Frias and Catalina Lopez de Castro. I was wondering if anyone had any information regarding the ascendancy of Catalina Lopez de Castro. I have connected Juan Perez de Frias as the son of Diego Perez de Frias and Elena de Sotomayor.

Also does anyone have access to Diego and Elena's marriage document?

Thank you,

Hopefully this information may help you find more information.

Here is how I have them listed in my records:

Juan Joseph Perez de Frias and Catalina (Catarina) Lopez de Castro.

Elena de Sotomayor is also known as "Elena Montañez de Sotomayor,"

Additional info: In Sergio Gutierrez's book "Los Altos de Jalisco: Padrones ... " Vol 1, Pg 40

There is a family in Teocaltiche in 1681 living together listed as:

Jose de Castro
.Catalina Lopez
.Juan de Castro
.Geronimo Nunez
.Clara Gomez su mujer

The "López de Castro" family is actually much older than what you have provided here. The supposed compounded name did not originate with this couple, but Capt. D. Juan López de Castro and Da. Ana de Bustos, residents in León, Guanajuato.I descend from their grandson D. Bartolomé López de Castro who married Da. Francisca Maldonado de Saavedra they baptized their only son Bartolomé (ch. 21 August 1675 in Guadalajara).
