Hi all,

I was wondering if someone had information on the origin of Alonso Garcia de Cuevas who also used the name Garcia de Miranda? And was also wondering if he might be related to the de la Cueva family. He would've been born around 1590 and was married to Antonia de Nava. They are the parents of Antonia de Nava/de Cuevas who married Bartolome Garcia de Leon in 1648 in Aguascalientes. Any information would be great.



This is a good question. I descend from this couple too. The only person that I know that uses the compound surname Garcia de Miranda is Angelina Garcia de Miranda that was married to Juan de Arrona and Martin Garcia. Angelina Garcia de Miranda was born about 40 years before the date you have listed for Alonso Garcia de Miranda / de Cuevas. Both estimates may be slightly off but I'm wondering whether Alonso Garcia de Miranda might be the son of Angelina Garcia de Miranda and Martin Garcia. Not saying for certain, but it might be a place to start.


Thanks Danny. This does makes sense. It looks like Angelina Garcia de Miranda was born about 1550 so it does seem like Alonso Garcia de Cueva / Miranda could be her son. Thank you for this information.
