• Background Information. 252
Roque de Madrid, son of Francisco de Madrid II and grandson of Juan Ruiz Cáceres, was the husband of Juana de Arvid (López), daughter of María Pacheco and grand-daughter of Gerónimo Pacheco. He escaped the 1680 massacre with his wife and two small children, and was described in 1681 as a native of New Mexico, a captain, married, thirty-seven years old, tall and slim in stature, swarthy, with a gray beard and thick, black hair. In the Vargas Entry of 1692, Roque rescued from captivity a certain Petrona, wife of Cristóbal Nieto, and her children, all of whom were related to his wife.

Roque de Madrid became Sargento Mayor of all troops by 1688, when he gave his age as forty-four. He took a leading part in the Vargas Expeditions of 1692 and 1693, and also in the serious Pueblo uprising of 1696. His wife, Juana López (Pacheco, de Arvid), returned with him and their family, settling at Santa Cruz. They had a grown son, José, in 1702, and a daughter Josefa, who married Cristóbal de la Serna in 1694. Two other young Madrids of the same generation, also living at Santa Cruz, and married into the same Serna family, were in all likelihood the sons of Roque. They were Pedro and Matías.
Roque must have married again, for in 1723, Julián Madrid, born in New Mexico, the son of Maestre de Campo Roque Madrid, deceased, and of Josefa Durán, married Estefania Martín in Santa Cruz. Roque had belonged to the Conquistadora Confraternity.
