Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the 1706 marriage of my 7th great grandparents Lorenzo de Alanis and Petra Fabiana Rodriguez in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. Unfortunately, I have yet to discover who their parents were. If you have any clues let me know in the comment area. Below, I have also included a list of their children that Crispin Rendon compiled.

My page 75 ancestor report from Crispin Rendon shows Miguel and Lorenzo:s parents to be Francisco Alanis and Maria Isabel Barrera daughter of Escribano Francisco Sanchez Barrera and Maria Duran Uscanga. Appears to me they are 2 brothers that married 2 sisters.
