1679 Marriage of Francisco Baez de Trevino and Catalina de Maya
Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the August 20, 1679 marriage of Francisco Baez de Trevino and Catalina de Maya who got married in what is now Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. They are my 8th great grandparents.

This record does not indicate who their parents are but thankfully to other sources we know that the parents of Francisco are Francisco de Trevino and Luisa Benavides. The parents of Catalina are Juan de Trevino and Ana de Maya.

I am a descendant of theirs through their daughter Nicolasa Baez de Trevino who married Cristoval Guerra Cañamar.

below is the transcription to the above marriage record so that you can easily read it.
