Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the baptism of my 7th great grandfather Diego de Hinojosa, it was recorded in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico back in December 8, 1697. Even-though it was recorded in Monterrey the baptism record indicates that he was baptized at the church located in the town of Tlascala that belongs to that Jurisdiction. It is also mentioned that he was born in November 25, 1697 to Diego Hinojosa and Josepha de la Garza with his God parents being Nicolas de Trevino and Maria de Salazar y Tobar.
