Ignacio Anastasio de AYALA422 was the Original Grantee of Porcion 99 (Camargo) in Camargo, Nuevo Santander, New Spain on 13 August 1768.432 He was the Original Grantee of "San Juan de los Esteros" in Matamoros, Nuevo Santander, New Spain in 1784.422 In 1774, about 7 years after they were granted porciones in Camargo, Ignacio Anastasio de Ayala and other Camargo residents established ranches further downriver, past Reynosa, on the south side of the Rio Grande. They did these without having the proper authorizations, probably following the example of others who some 30 years prior had established ranches in the Camargo area in anticipation of a future settlement there. However, the lands where they established their ranches became part of a hacienda named La Sauteña owned by Antonio de Urizar, a businessman from Mexico City. The entire area from the Rio Grande on the north to San Fernando on the south and from Nuevo Leon and Reynosa on to the west to the Laguna Madre on the east had been granted to Urizar in an effort to accelerate its colonization. This led to a legal complaint filed by La Sauteña against the unauthorized occupants of "los terrenos de la costa", or the territories of the coast, as the lands were then known. The legal complaint was resolved in 1784, when Ignacio Anastasio de Ayala, acting as the authorized representative for the unauthorized settlers, negotiated the purchase of 113 sitios of land from La Sauteña. The settlers thus legalized their ownership of the lands they had settled. Ignacio Anastasio de Ayala named his ranch San Juan de los Esteros, and his tract extended for about 6 leagues south of the Rio Grande River.

Ignacio Anastasio de Ayala died in 1786; his widow Josefa de Treviño and their son Calixto Ayala each inherited one-half of San Juan de Los Esteros. In 1790 Josefa de Treviño married again to Pedro Lopez Prieto, himself a widower. On March 18, 1794, Pedro Lopez Prieto sold his wife's share of San Juan de los Esteros to Lorenzo de la Garza, but respecting the wishes of the deceased Ignacio Anastasio de Ayala, Lorenzo de la Garza ceded one sitio of land and Calixto Ayala ceded 3 sitios of land for the site of a new community, named Congregacion de Nuestra Señora del Refugio de los Esteros. On January 28, 1826 the Congregacion was granted the status of villa and renamed Villa de Matamoros in honor of General Mariano Matamoros. This is the present day city of Matamoros, Tamaulipas. He died in 1786.422 He was one of the 14 original founders of the "congregacion" named San Juan de los Esteros Hermosos about 20 miles upstream from the mouth of the Rio Grande River; the "congregacion" grew into the city known today as Matamoros, Tamaulipas, Mexico.

Spouse: Josefa de TREVIÑO. Josefa de TREVIÑO and Ignacio Anastasio de AYALA were married. Children were: Calixto AYALA.


Inez de AYALA Zaldivar y Sosa15,433 was born (date unknown). Marriage Investigation #31-8, page 135, notes that she is a sister of Maria de Ayala, who was married to Nicolas Lopez Prieto. Genealogical chart #4, page 327, in the Marriage Investigations book gives her name as Inez de Zaldivar Ayala y Sosa. General Diego de Ayala had three wives and a daughter named Maria de Ayala with each of the first two wives, Ana de Valle (whose daughter Maria de Ayala married Nicolas Lopez Prieto) and Margarita de Sosa (whose daughter Maria de Ayala married Juan de la Garza). I am assuming for now that Marriage Investigation #31-8 made no distinction between a half-sister and a full-sister and that Inez was a daughter of Diego's second wife Margarita de Sosa and thus only a half-sister of the Maria de Ayala who married Nicolas Lopez Prieto. Parents: General Diego de AYALA and Margarita de ZALDIVAR (aka Margarita de Sosa).

Spouse: Capt. Lazaro DE LA GARZA FALCON. Inez de AYALA Zaldivar y Sosa and Capt.

Spouse: Lucas GARCIA. Josefa de AYALA and Lucas GARCIA were married after 23 February 1667. Children were: Maria GARCIA.


Joseph Cayetano de AYALA437 was born (date unknown). Parents: Joseph de AYALA Rodriguez and Isabel de OCHOA.

Spouse: Josepha Francisca de TREVIÑO. Josepha Francisca de TREVIÑO and Joseph Cayetano de AYALA were married after 5 January 1714.437


Joseph de AYALA Rodriguez was born (date unknown). Parents: Diego de AYALA and Ines RODRIGUEZ de Montemayor.

Spouse: Isabel de OCHOA. Isabel de OCHOA and Joseph de AYALA Rodriguez were married after 18 May 1693. Children were: Joseph Cayetano de AYALA.


Capt. Joseph de AYALA95,415,431 was born in 1615 in Hacienda San Francisco (Apodaca), Nuevo Leon, New Spain.434 He died about 1695 at the age of 80.434 In his testament, Jose de Ayala named his legitimate children with Ana de Benavides as being Josefa, Catalina, Maria Antonia, Jusepe [Joseph], Agustina, Micaela, Juana and Margarita and further notes that his wife is pregnant at that time (April 14, 1666). He further names Lorenzo as his natural son and Luisa as his natural daughter. Assuming that Ana de Benavides completed her pregnancy and safely delivered her child there would be 11 children of Joseph de Ayala: 9 legitimate and 2 natural. For reasons explained below, there is a possibility that there were really 10 legitimate children and 2 natural children.

In the Index to the Marriage Investigations of the Diocese of Guadalajara there are references to 8 children of Joseph de Ayala: Catalina, Maria, Nicolas, Josefa, Margarita, Antonia, Francisca and Luisa. The daughters named Maria and Antonia definitely appear to be two different persons so it may be that the transcription of Joseph de Ayala's testament may have a slight error and that there should be a comma between Maria and Antonia, designating two different persons.

If I make the assumption of a transcription error noted above, then the Testament and the Marriage Investigations are in agreement on the names of 6 children: Josefa, Catalina, Maria, Antonia, Margarita and Luisa. The Marriage Investigations have 2 names not mentioned in the Testament: Nicolas and Francisca. The Testament has 5 names not found in the Marriage Investigations: Joseph, Agustina, Micaela, Juana and Lorenzo. The Marriage Investigations indicate that Nicolas was a legitimate son so I am assuming he is the same person as the Joseph mentioned in the Testament. I am further assuming that Francisca was the child born after the Testament was made, since her name is not to be found in his Testament. Parents: Joseph de TREVIÑO and Leonor de AYALA (aka Leonor de Treviño).
