Longoria: Last Names of Nuevo Leon
Last Names of Nuevo Leon

My latest book is titled "Longoria" and is part of my book series Last Names of Nuevo Leon. Here you can get your copy and read more about it.

I became interest on this last name when I discovered that one of my female ancestors was a Longoria out of Camargo, Tamaulipas. She and her husband are among the first settler of Camargo.

This 447-page book contains eight generations of the descendants of Lorenzo Suarez de Longoria and Ana de Salazar. He was born in Oviedo, Asturias, Spain and entered el Nuevo Reino de Leon (Nuevo Leon) in the 1620s. Lorenzo Suarez de Longoria is considered to be the progenitor of the Longoria last name in Coahuila, Nuevo Leon, Tamaulipas, and Texas. This book contains information from the 1600’s to the mid 1800’s.

In July 21, 1665 he made a will where he stated that he was the legitimate son of Alonso de la Fontiaga and Ines de Valdes. He married Ana de Salazar the daughter of Pedro Salazar and Isabel de Quintanilla.

Don Israel Cavazos Garza, in his book Diccionario Biografico de Nuevo Leon, states that Lorenzo was “Alcalde Mayor” of Saltillo in 1616 and that he was also an early settler of Nuevo Leon who served in many public positions.

Lorenzo Suarez de Longoria died after July 21, 1665 and one can assume with certainty that he was buried at the Convent of San Francisco in Monterrey. I say assume because on his will he stated that she wished to be buried there.

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since that is impossible, it only includes the ones that I have identified through documents, reliable published, and unpublished works.
