Last Names of Nuevo Leon
The following is the 2-4-1697 church marriage of my 9th great grandparents Melchor de Trevino and Antonia de la Garza.

Cut out of original image:

Transcription of above document:

Melchor de Trevino y D Antonia de la Garza espanolez 

En Este dia mes y ano en Esta capilla despote y Case por palabras de presente y Cele in facie Eclasie a Melchor de Trevino y a D Antonia de la Graza aviendo adquirido de tercero grado y aviendo precedido Las Vanas en 27 de henero y en 2 y 3 de febrero de este presente ano Siendo testigos Sa Angel de la Garza y el Cap Augn. de la Vera y para que conste lo firme = ut supra – 

Pb Lorenso Perez de Leon

To fully appreciate this document one has to look at the previous marriage since it sets the date and place that Melchor and Antonia got married. It reads “En quatro de febrero de mil seisientos y nobenta y siete anos en La Capilla de S. Franco. de la Jurisdision de esta ciudad”. Hacienda de San Francisco is present day Apodaca Nuevo Leon.
