Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the October 3, 1696 death record of my 9th great grandmother Leonor de Ayala in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. This image indicates that she was married to Francisco de Escamilla. 

Even though it does not mention the names of her parents we know through other records that they are Francisco de Trevino and Bernarda de Abrego.
