Nicolas Gutierrez and Clara de Renteria
Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the church marriage record of my 10th great grandparents Captain Nicolas Gutierrez de Lara and Clara Trevino de Renteria. They got married on November 14, 1672, at the Hacienda de la Pesqueria, but the record is in the church records of Monterrey.

Nicolas is the son of Melchor Gutierrez and Isabel Lara. The parents of Clara are Alonzo de Trevino and Mayor de Renteria.

I am one of their descendants through their daughter Isabel Gutierrez de Lara. You can find more information about her and her siblings at the bottom of this page.

Here is the transcription of their marriage record.

Gutierrez: Last Names of Nuevo Leon

The upcoming Gutierrez book is a 541-page book that contains six generations of the descendants of Nicolas Gutierrez de Lara and Clara de Treviño Renteria. Nicolas was born about 1652 and probably born in Queretaro and entered el Nuevo Reino de Leon (Nuevo Leon) before 1672. He is considered to be the progenitor of the Gutierrez last name in Nuevo Leon, Tamaulipas, and South Texas. This book contains information from the late 1600s to the middle 1800s.
