Montemayor Last Names of Nuevo Leon

Montemayor: Last Names of Nuevo Leon

One of the earliest last names of Nuevo Leon is that of Montemayor and today I want to tell you about my latest book that focuses on this last name. It is titled "Montemayor" and is part of my book series Last Names of Nuevo Leon.

I became interest on this last name when I discovered that my 12th great grandfather was Diego de Montemayor. I also discovered that I descended from two of his wives; Ines Rodriguez and Juana Porcayo de la Cerda.

Diego is considered to be the progenitor of the Montemayor last name in Nuevo Leon, Tamaulipas, and South Texas. Of course his descendants are nowadays all over the world.

This book contains seven generations of descendants of Diego de Montemayor and his three wives Ines Rodriguez, Maria Esquivel, and Juana Porcallo de la Cerda. It covers the time period of the middle 1500s through the early 1800s. It is 413 pages and is full of genealogical information that includes sources for the facts listed.

Keep in mind, this book as all my others are only tools to help you build your tree. Once you discover a death date, baptism date, and or marriage date get a copy of the original. It is very rewarding to do so and you will learn more details about your ancestors.

Also this book does not include every descendant of theirs since that is impossible, it only includes the ones that I have identified through documents, reliable published, and unpublished works.

    I may have given you this information before but I am finding at the age of 85 that my memory isn’t as good as it used to be.
    Diego Montemayor was my 11th great-grandfather. His daughter (with Juana Cerda) Estefania married my 10th great-father, Alberto del Canto. I have traced Juana Cerda’s maternal genealogy back to Henry II of England.
