Bartolomé de Montoya
came with his entire family in 1600. He was a native of Cantillana (near Sevilla, Spain), the son of Francisco de Montoya and was described as being short, wearing a black beard and twenty-eight years of age. His wife was Maria de Zamora, born in Mexico City at San Sebastian, the daughter of Pedro de Zamora who was a resident of that city and former Alcalde Mayor of Oaxaca, Mexico. Her mother's name was Agustina Abarca. ["Archivos General de la Nacion, Mexico: 1. Inquisicion - Photo copies in the Coronado Library at the University of New Mexico. Some "Inquisicion" references by page, instead of foja, are transcript copies owned by Dean Scholes, to be also found in the Library of Congress and Ayer Collection}, t. 462, f. 351]. Maria had married Montoya at Texcoco, [ibid.] and by the time they joined Onate's colony they had three boys and two girls, who were all under sixteen in 1600; Francisco, Diego, Jose, Lucia and Pertronila.
