Mr. Newton:

Here you will find a listing of 12 documents
which will give you the complete family background
of Ursula de Avere, (Mrs. R6pllado and Vrs. Arrivas)
taking her family as far back documented as 1619.

Please note in listing marked Dec. no. 4.
Juan de Penalosa was also a native but so far
I have not caught his line. I am working on It.
All the other gentleman, Geronime de Cabrera, (No. 1)
Domingo Garcia de Valle Azavedo,(No.6) and Victorian*
de Avere, (No. 8) plus both of Ursula's husbands were
NOT natives of the town. All the ladles were.

Another thing I would like to bring to your attention.
In the listing marked No. 1.
Juana de Savallos was a native. In order to be married
at this early date she would have had to be at least
15 years old. The only couple having children -during
these first years of our earliest documents- was Juan de
Savallos and Luisa Meleadez, bearing a name similar to Juana
de Savallos. I did not find her birth record however.
Hence I did not inclose It as documented evidence.
It seems logical and very natural that she would have
been their daughter, they were having children in 1597,
1609 and 1611. Since there is no marriage record for them
to date then Juana may have been their first child pre 1597.
There are sheets missing and documents which are illegible
so she could be there but at present not found.

You will also note that I have given you only Tadee as heir
as he is the one connected definitely with the Arrivas House.
And then taken it from his mother on back. This is a direct
line. I would mightily like to connect on to the Luisa Velender
above as this was a "TOP" family.

Anyway you have Ursula's parents, grandparents, great grands,
great great grands, and great great great grands. 'his is
quite a background. Places of residence of all grandfathers
are on the records as well...

Note: In response to our recent conversation this
is merely a direct line documentation.
It severs the occupant or owner of the Arrivas
House, (Tadee) his mother, Ursula de Avere,
and her complete background.

[Just give Mrs. Wiles the list and she will arrange
to have copies made]

1st document, marriage, Ph. 33. Oct. 12, 1619, Geroniro de
Cabrera and Juana de Savalles.

2nd dec. marriage, Ph. 12. May 4. 1645, Lu-femia de Cabrera
to Juan de Herrera.
[Note: Her baptism is missing
but her marriage record gives
parents. I have children from
1621 to 1634 with an 8 year
missing period 1622 to 1630.
Which is the time she would have
to be born]
