The following is the 1694 death record of my 11th great grandfather Joseph de Ayala. He was buried in El Convento de San Francisco. This document indicates that his son Nicolas de Ayala was his executor. Through other sources we have found out that his wife was Ana de Benavides and that he was the son of Joseph de Tremino and Leonor de Ayala. He obviously got his last name from his mother. If you are a descendant of them let me know in the comments.
