Juan Bautista CHAPA1066,1067 was born before 16 November 1627 in Albisola, Genoa, Italy.460 This is the baptism date. He was baptized on 16 November 1627 in Albisola, Genoa, Italy.1066 Albisola is on the coast near Genoa, Italy. He signed a will on 8 February 1694 in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, New Spain. He named as Executors his sons Joseph and Gaspar. However, Gaspar died on the same day Juan Bautista drew up his will. Naming Gaspar as a Co-Executor may have been a way for Juan Bautista to honor his dying son. Juan died on 20 April 1695 at the age of 67 in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, New Spain. Juan Bautista Chapa arrived in New Spain in 1647. He lived in Mexico City for a few years and arrived in Nuevo Leon around 1650. He became secretary to the village of Caderyta by the year 1652. By 1662, he had become secretary to the Governor of Nuevo Leon, Martin de Zavala, and also served in that role under de Zavala's successors, Governor Leon de Alza and Governor Azcarraga.
Juan Bautista accompanied Alonso de Leon on several of his expeditions into Texas in the late 1600's. Alonso de Leon's mission was to search for and destroy the colony that the French, under La Salle, had reportedly established somewhere on the Texas coast. From the detailed diaries that Juan Bautista kept on the expeditions and from his work as secretary to the governors of Nuevo Leon, he wrote his "Historia de Nuevo Leon". This is the definitive historical work on northern Mexico and south Texas.
However, for almost 300 years, no one knew who had written the "Historia de Nuevo Leon" because Juan Bautista chose to remain anonymous. He did so because he recognized the many difficulties and dangers in writing histories during that era. The incredulity of some and the censure of others would make life very difficult for the author, with many rebukes and criticisms. Juan Bautista used the example of Zoilo, who rebuked and criticized the Greek poet Homer, whom Juan Bautista calls the "Prince of Poets". Thus, the author of this important history became known simply as the "autor anonimo". It was not until 1961 that he was identified as the author through extensive research and analysis by the noted Mexican historian, Israel Cavazos Garza.
