Juan Guerrero Montesuma - Cocula Jalisco

Having a couple of Guerrero in my ancestors lines I stumble upon this name a while back, I didn't had time to research it until this past days, in fact I even forgot about that line (very distant to me actually) until a researcher ask me for some names and thus I decided to give a read to those records, I did found a few children of Juan Guerrero Montesuma(Moctezuma or Motessuma) and Doña Maria de Cardenas all between 1660-80.

I'm not familiar with this name, I've seen lots of research on those names and I wonder if anyone here has more information about it. I know Moctezuma is rather common and so is Guerrero, although as a compounded last name seems to be less common but I couldn't find any thing else in Cocula, I suspect they (like many other families) moved there during the 1600's.

To me is more of a curiosity but it will clear up some of the questions the fellow researchers has asked me about this. Thank you.

Buenas tardes RJ,

Este nombre y apellido me suena. Hace años revisando entre los archivos de la Sagrada Mitra de Guadalajara vi la dispensa de don Juan Guerrero y Moctezuma (también Juan de Moctezuma Guerrero) y doña María de Cárdenas. No conservé una copia, pues realmente no me interesó, pero sí, un dato curioso. No recuerdo los padres, pero éste fue originario del Obispado de México, creo en Toluca o algún lugar en Hidalgo. Lo interesante del documento lo nombra como Cacique de tal pueblo.

Hola Daniel,

Muy interesante, me pondré a buscar en los indices de la Sagrada Mitra, tengo idea de los años a buscar, con saber la procedencia puede definitivamente dar lugar a mas información y en que parte del país buscarla.

Muchas gracias por los datos! Saludos,
