Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the December 22, 1678 death record of my 8th great grandfather Pedro Flores de Abrego in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. AS of the writing of this post I have yet to discover whom his parents  were. If anyone has a document indicating whom his parents are please let me know. This document indicates that he was a Captain and was married to Margarita de la Garza. It is also indicated that he was buried at the Convent of San Francisco.
