Juan González Bernal and his wife, Apolonia, are mentioned in 1663 as belonging to the "Griegos" family. A daughter of theirs was involved in an affair with a Pedro de Arteaga. As late as 1703, two daughters of Juan González, Melchora and Antonia, were claiming Santa Fé property that had once belonged to Isabel Bernal (their grandmother).
Juan González Bernal of the seventeenth century, whose wife was Apolonia Varela, was the son of the original Sebastián Gonzáles whose wife was Isabel Bernal of the Juan Griego family. Two of their sons were Juan II, who married Nicolasa Zaldívar Jorge, and Sebastián, husband of Lucía Ortiz.
Bernal of the seventeenth century, whose wife was Apolonia Varela, from all indications turns out to be a son of the original Sebastián González who married Isabel Bernal of the Juan Griego family. Of the daughters of Juan there mentioned, Melchora and Antonia, the latter was the wife of Apolinar Martín Serrano (DM, 1692, no. 6). Two known sons were Juan II, who married Nicolasa Zaldivar Jorge, and Sebastián, husband of Lucia Ortiz. Their mother appears to be the same Apolonia Varela whose marriage to Juan Bautista Zaragoza was annulled in 1641, a cause célèbre of the period.
