Spouse: Francisco GONZALEZ Hidalgo. Agustina de CHARLES and Francisco GONZALEZ Hidalgo were married. Children were: Josepha GONZALEZ, Tomas GONZALEZ Hidalgo.


Agustina de CHARLES1165 died after 11 October 1626.1165 She made her last testament on this date. The October 11, 1626 testament of Agustina de Charles notes that she was the daughter of Bartolome de Charles and Juana Gonzalez, that she was the widow of Juan Perez de los Rios, and that they had had six children -- four of which (Alonso de Charles, Bartolome de Charles, Estevan de los Rios and Pedro de los Rios) were already deceased and two of which (Ana Perez and Juan Perez de los Rios) were still living. Parents: Bartolome de CHARLES and Juana GONZALEZ.

Spouse: Capt. Juan PEREZ de los Rios. Agustina de CHARLES and Capt. Juan PEREZ de los Rios1166 were married. Children were: Alonso de CHARLES, Bartolome de CHARLES, Estevan PEREZ de los Rios, Pedro PEREZ de los Rios, Ana PEREZ de los Rios, Juan PEREZ de los Rios.


Alonso de CHARLES1165,1166 died before 11 October 1626.1165 He went with his parents to New Mexico in 1590 as part of the group led by Gaspar Castano de Sosa which attempted to illegally settle New Mexico. Parents: Capt. Juan PEREZ de los Rios and Agustina de CHARLES.


Bartolome de CHARLES1165 was born (date unknown).

Spouse: Juana GONZALEZ. Juana GONZALEZ and Bartolome de CHARLES1165 were married. Bartolome de Charles and Juana Gonzalez were citizens of the Pueblo de los Angeles. Children were: Agustina de CHARLES.


Bartolome de CHARLES626,1165,1166 died before 4 September 1626.438 He died before 11 October 1626.1165 He went with his parents to New Mexico in 1590 as part of the group led by Gaspar Castano de Sosa which attempted to illegally settle New Mexico.

I am assuming this is the same Bartolome de Charles who married Leonor de la Cruz. The October 11, 1626 testament of Agustina de Charles notes that she was the daughter of Bartolome de Charles and Juana Gonzalez, that she was the widow of Juan Perez de los Rios, and that among their children had been a son named Bartolome de Charles who was already deceased and another son named Juan Perez de los Rios who was still alive. Agustina's living son was undoubtedly the same Juan Perez de los Rios noted in the September 4, 1626 Census of the Villa of Cerralvo (Monterrey) as having a house in which he lived with his wife, mother and widowed sister and that he also had a jacal in which lived Leonor, "widowed Indian" of Bartolome de Charles. My guess is that Leonor's deceased husband Bartolome de Charles was the son of Juan Perez de los Rios and Agustina de Charles. Further research is needed to prove this but I have nevertheless decided to incorporate this assumed relationship into my database until my assumption is proved incorrect.

Marriage Investigation #39-1 notes that the wife of Juan Perez de los Rios was named Agustina de Belmar (Mermal) and that Juan Perez de los Rios was a brother of Bartolome de Charles, husband of Leonor de la Cruz. Thus it seems quite probable that Juan Perez de los Rios and Bartolome de Charles were two of the sons mentioned in the last Testament of Agustina de Charles, widow of Juan Perez de los Rios.

A significant complication is that Marriage Investigation #39-1 notes that several witnesses stated that Leonor de la Cruz was the wife of Juan Perez de los Rios. I believe this is a reference to the younger, still living Juan Perez de los Rios, husband of Agustina de Belmar (or Mermal), but I leave it to others to discern the implications of these witnesses' statement.
