A record of Mateo Manzanares from 7 Dec 1636, is a description of his estancia. It was described as being more than three leagues from the Pueblo of San Felipe. This may be the same Mateo Manzanares who was the father of Blas Candelaria's wife, Ana de Sandoval y Manzanares.

Ana de Sandoval y Manzanares was the daughter of Mateo de Sandoval y Manzanares and the wife of Blas de la Candelaria, who died before 1680. A matrimonial record found in Parral San Diego, dated 4 June 1675, states that Bartolomé de Sandoval, native of New México, son of ____ Mateo de Sandoval, mulatto libre of New México and Juana de la Cruz, Indian servant of Capitan Don Pedro del Pozo, a miner of the same place, was to marry Luisa de la Cruz, Indian woman of San Dieglo. This suggests that Mateo was a former slave and that this is the same Mateo de Sandoval y Manzanares who was Ana's father.
