Tomé Domínguez de Mendoza, "el Mozo," had a flourishing estancia below Isleta Pueblo as early as 1662, It was he who obtained the release of Don Pedro Durán y Cháves after the famous "right or sanctuary" case. His wife was Catalina López Mederos, sister of Pedro López. In 1666, he was named interim Governor when Governor Villañueva returned to New Spain for an eye-treatment.
In August 1680, Tomé and his family fled south with the rest of the Rio Abajo people. He passed muster as a Maeses de Campo with full complement of arms, four soldier sons and thirty horses, declaring that he himself was married, as also three of his sons, with eight children among them, the entire family consisting of fifty-five persons, including servants. He also claimed that thirty-eight relatives had been killed by the Pueblo Indians. The following year he claimed to be sixty-one years old with gout and stomach disorders, and boasted of having served the King in New Mexico since he had "reached years of discretion."
In the Pueblo Revolt of 1680, Tomé had lost his son Tomé III who died in battle. Two of his other sons, Juan and Diego, had been seriously wounded by poison arrows; and the fourth, Francisco, had also fought in the Indian conflicts.
In the Pueblo Revolt of 1680, he said the Indians had killed many of his sons, daughters, grandsons, a grand-daughter, and two sons-in-laws, his brothers, nephews, and two callados. In the year of 1682, Tomé and Don Pedro de Cháves got permission to depart with their familes for New Spain, and they never returned to New México.
The village of Tomé was built on the site of his estancia, and was named after Tomé Domínguez de Mendoza.
