This is the July 23, 1553 baptism of my 11th great grandmother Maria Ines Rodriguez who was baptized in Mexico City.
I first came across the reference to thsi baptism in the book by Guillermo Garmendia Leal on the descendants of Diego de Montemayor.
It wasn't until earlier this month that I had the chance to look for it.
The record raises several questions. The side says that her name is mayor but the record says that her name is Maria. Should her name be Maria Mayor Montemayor?
Also, her father is just noted as "d montemayor", is this really Diego de Montemayor?
We know from other sources that our ancestor is Maria Ines de Montemayor.
Could this record posibly belong to a sister of hers or to an entirely separate person?
If you have any opinions, please leave them in the comments of this post.
