• Background Information. 252
Francisco Lucero de Godoy, Alférez and Armorer, escaped in 1680 with a family of twenty-two, including wife, children, and servants. He was tall and erect with a thick beard, a wound-scar on his mustache and another on the right side of his nose. His lands in Santa Fe, which formerly belonged to Andrés López, were on the Ciénega road. In 1692 he took part in the Vargas Entry as a captain of artillery and armorer.

His first wife was Josefa López de Grijalva, daughter of Andrés López Sambrano. Her daughter testified years later that it was she who took out the venerated statue of La Conquistadora when the besieged people of Santa Fe withdrew to Guadalupe del Paso in 1680; she also personally brought it back, and was still living in Santa Fe in March, 1695. Josefa died shortly after, and Francisco then married Catalina de Espínola, the young widow of Antonio Jorge de Vera. He also was devoted to La Conquistadora. The children by his first wife were: Francisco Mateo, Beatriz, Josefa, María, wife of Juan de Alderete, and Lucía, wife of Francisco del Río.
