The 11 Families Listed on The 1757 Census of La Villa de Laredo

Our Genealogy Research can lead us in many directions and also lead us to find many documents. One of those documents that I came across was the 1757 Revista de Pobladores conducted by Captain Jose Tienda de Cuervo of La Villa de Laredo present day Laredo, Texas.

In total the document contains 34 pages but I only extracted the names of the people residing in Laredo in 1757. It is interesting to note that at the end it is mentioned that they are 11 families and I assume that the single households were not included. If you would like to see or read the whole document just click at the source link at the end of this post.

Here is the cover page of the 34 page document:
