Alanso Varela and his brother Pedro came from Santiago de Compostela to the New World, and up to New Mexico in 1598 with Oñate's troops. The first man founded a family which came to be known as Varela Jammillo, and the second founded the Varela de Losada family. The two men were specifically referred to as the "Varela brothers" in 1613.
