• Background Information: 252
Mateo Trujillo was a soldier, native of New Mexico, who gave his age as thirty in 1694, forty in 1704, and fifty-four in 1714. He was too young, apparently, to be the Mateo of the 1680-81 Revolt lists, yet might be the same man. In 1694 he received a grant of land south of Santa Clara Pueblo, and in 1703 bought additional property at Santa Fe while soldiering in Santa Fe; he also sold a Santa Fe house and lot in 1722.

In the Indian Uprising of 1696, a corpse found with those of the martyred Padres at San Ildefonso was thought to be his; however, he reached Santa Fe, shoeless and almost naked, after what was termed a miraculous escape. He belonged to the Conquistadora Confraternity.

Mateo's wife was María de Tapia, widow of Alonso Romero, by whom he had a daughter, Juana, married to Pedro Montes Vigil. There were also two sons: Francisco, father of José and Maríano Trujillo, who made his last will in 1754; and Agustín, father of Manuela, Manuel, and Antonio Trujillo.
