      The people of the Bario of Santa Fe, prior to the Pueblo Indian Revolt, came from Zacatecas, Mexico. Prior to that, they were from the state of Tlaxcala, Mexico. These were the people who had originally lived in New Mexico, and had migrated south. They were never conquered by the Aztecs. They joined the Spaniards and drove the Aztecs out. In appreciation of these warriors, the Spanish king made them nobility. They were sent north to their ancestral homelands in the late 1500's to pacify the Chichimic Indians who lived in the vecinity of Zacatecas. If you are interested in this, look at my article in the August issue of www.somosprimos.com It gives a list of Spanish surnames of these Tlascalan natives, who intermarried with the Spanish soldiers. The original documents in Spanish are in the files section of www.NuestraRanchos.com
