Taken from The Páez Hurtado Expedition of 1695: Fraud in Recruiting Colonists for New Mexico 424
Pages 29 -

This list is somewhat tricky because there were people who didn't actually leave Zacatecas on the list, and people were grouped together as families who were not actually related to each other. I've sorted through the book trying to figure out who did and didn't come to New Mexico.

The following settlers most likely came single (unmarried) to New Mexico, although listed among family groups by Páaz Hurtado:
  • ANTONÍO FÉLIX (VALENCIA), thirty year old Spaniard, native of San Juan Bautisa, Sornora.

  • NICOLÁS DE LA TRINIDAD, twenty, mestizo

  • NICOLÁ RODRÍGUEZ, castizo, eighteen years of age.

  • MIGUEL DE AGUILAR, twenty-four years of age, native of the Valle of Toluca in the Archbishopric of Mexico, had his prenuptial investigation on 6 Sep 1697 as Santa Cruz de la Cañada for his impending marriage to Garcia Bautista de Olivas, twenty, native of Sombrerete and daughter of Juan Bautista de Olivas and Magdalena Juáez.

  • JOSÉ ANTONIO ROMERO, native of Carmona, Spain.

  • MANUELA NEGRETE, mestiza, who said she was sixteen when she wed Simó de Contreras two years after her arrival in New Mexico. Manuela and Simón moved to Santa Cruz de la Cañada

  • BARTOLOMÉ SÁNCHEZ, aged twenty, described as being able bodied with straight black hair and thick eyebrows.

  • DON FELIPE DE SORI, native of Pátzcuaro, twenty-two years old, with hazel hair, a pudgy face, and able bodied.

  • MARÍA DE CASTRO, listed as a Spanish native of Sombrerete, eighteen of age.

  • María de Castro Xabalera, and later married, as the second wife, Jacinto Sánchez.

  • JUAN DE REINA, thirty-two, a Spaniard and native of Reino de Nuevo Leó, red hair, able-godied with a scar on his left cheek.

  • MARÍA DE CASTAÑEDA, mestiza, twenty-five

  • CRISTÓBAL DE ARELLANO, twenty-three, mestizo.

  • MATIANA DE SAN JOSÉ, aged eighteen.

  • MIGUEL DE AYALA, morisco who later married a woman named Juana de Torres.

  • MATEO DE ARANDA, Spaniard from Béjar, Portugal, aged thirty-one, able-bodied with chestnut hair, but with his vision restricted to his left eye.

  • NICOLÁS DE ESPINOSA, coyote, native of Los Lagos, twenty-two, with straight black hair, and pockmarked.

  • MARÍA DE LAS ROSA, multata blanca, fifteen years

  • NICOLÁS RODRÍGUEZ, age five on 8 Feb 1695. He is probably the Nicolás Rodríguez who was twenty-two, native of Sombrerete, married, a a resident of Santa Cruz de la Cañada in 1714 who was a witness at the prenuptial investigation of María Durán and Baltasar Carbajal.

  • MIGUEL TENORIO DE ALBA, Spanish son of Juan Tenorio and Josefa López de Sandoval, a native of Zacatecas, twenty, with straight black hair, a face horribly pock marked, and a scar on the right side of his forehead.

  • MIGUEL DE MIRANDA, widower of María de Vega, he was thirty years old, native of Monterrey, Nevo León, and the possible father of Juan de Miranda, eight, who was listed on the roll as Esteban Hernández.

The following settlers are grouped by families:
  • SEBASTIANA RODRÍGUEZ, free mulatta, native of Zacatecas, widow of Matías Contreras.
  • SIMÓN DE CONTRERAS, son of above, native of Zacatecas.
  • DOMINGO DE CONTRERAS, son of Sebastiana, native of Zacatecas.
  • SALVADORA, the natural daughter of Sebastiana, native of Zacatecas.
