• Background Information. 252
A Juan de Herrera, twenty years old, came in 1600; he was the son of Francisco de Herrera and a native of Mexico City, of medium height, round-faced, with a beard starting to grow. He held the encomienda of Santa Clara and Jémez throughout his lifetime, and was a member of the Council in 1642. He donated some of his land before 1680 to the Franciscan Mission of San Juan. Other lands of his in the Cañada area were inherited after the Reconquest by an Isabel González. His old estancia there was still remembered in 1696. He had died well before 1680, but we know that the same man is meant in the foregoing citations because some of his children appear in the documents cited.

From the marriage of two of his children, Miguel and Isabel, we know that his wife was Ana López del Castillo, who had also died before 1680. Their known children were as follows: Juan II, Antonio, Miguel, Ana María, Eugenia, who married Antonio de Córdoba, Isabel, wife of Cristóbal Tafoya, and, possibly, Josefa, wife of Domingo Martín Serrano
