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.
