Zamora-Montoya a Promising Lead
María de Zamora (ONMF: 77), wife of Bartolomé de Montoya, was identified by Chávez as being a daughter of Pedro de Zamora and Agustina de Abarca. Chávez's source indicates that Pedro de Zamora was a former Alcalde Mayor of Oaxaca before coming to reside at Mexico City in the neighborhood of San Sebastián. Among the prominent citizens of Oaxaca in the sixteenth century were members of the Pérez de Zamora family. Members of this family went by these interchangable surnames: Zamora, Pérez, Pérez de Zamora, and González.
In the latter part of the 1500s there was a Pedro Pérez de Zamora of Oaxaca who was described as being "en corregimiento," which indicates he was somehow involved as a city official. His uncle Luis de Zamora (aka Luis Pérez de Zamora held various alcaldías mayores for as many as thirty years in the latter half of the 1500s.
Pedro Pérez de Zamora was married at Oaxaca and was a son of Alvaro de Zamora (aka Alvaro Pérez de Zamora). Alvaro Pérez de Zamora was a son of Alonso Pérez de Zamora, a conquistador de México. Alvaro's wife was doña Catalina de Ocampo, the third child of don Sebastián de Saavedra and doña Catalina de Ocampo. (Sebastián de Saavedra was a native of Sevilla, and a son of Sebastián de Saavedra and doña Isabel de Sanabria, native of Carmona -belonging to the Sanabria and Sotomayor familes of this town).
