Pedro de Chavarria Butrón and Maria Francisca de Ureña (married 1698)

The Church of the Asunción in Mineral del Monte, Hidalgo, Mexico on September 16, 2002

Pedro de Chavarria Butrón and Maria Francisca de Ureña were married in the Church of the Asunción in Mineral del Monte on September 1, 1698. A veiling took place on February 23, 1700. Examining the microfilms of the original documents, one finds that Pedro and Maria Francisca were natives of Pachuca. Their marriage and veiling are found in the books for castas, but in both cases they themselves are clearly indicated as being Spaniards. This is written right into the entry, but sometimes in places where it could have been added afterwards.

The marriage entry, which is very hard to read, reads:

Pedro de Chavarria con Maria Francisca de Ureña ---españoles. En primero de septiembre de mill ceisentas y noventa y ocho años case a Pedro de Chavarria Butron, español de esta Real de Pacuca y vecino de este Real de Mel... con Maria Francisca de Ureña española natural de Pachuca y ... en este Real de Minas. Then it names the padrinos and has the priest's signature, but this is impossible to read.

 

The veiling entry is easier to read:

Velaccion de Pedro de Chavarria con Maria Francisca de Ureña. En este yglesia parroquial deste Real del Monte en veint y tres dias del mes de feb, de mil y setecientos anos a dio la bendicion nupt a Pedro de Chabarria casado, con Maria Francisca de Ureña y lo firme. Estos son españoles. Don Zapatta

 

 

I have found these children for them:

1. Juana Xabiera, baptized on June 28, 1701 in the Church of the Asunción in Mineral del Monte.

2. Matiana Maria, baptized on September 28, 1703 in the Church of the Asunción in Mineral del Monte.

3. Juana Xaviera, baptized on July 1, 1705 at the Church of the Asunción of Real de Minas del Monte.

 

Some remarks:

Despite its title this book actually does have a lot of Spaniards in it. Butron, de Chavarria and de Ureña are family names that appear fairly frequently in the 17th and 18th century church records of Pachuca and Mineral del Monte, although they do not seem to appear at all in the baptismal book where Juana's baptism is found. I've looked at quite a number of them now. The people with these names actually were often of mixed blood. One thing, is that the name "Ureña" is often written as if it started with a V, but at the Archivo de Indias in Seville the letter is always transcribed as a U and I think that they are really the experts.

 

Pedro de Chavarria Butrón's origins

 

During a visit to Mineral del Monte in September 2008, the priest (who was none to eager to help) found this marriage record which could well be for a brother of Pedro

Matrimonio y velacción de Juan de Chabarria Butrón con Doña Antonia Manuela de Mendosa.

Maria Francisca de Ureña's Origins

Familysearch.com has the following baptismal information that I think must be for Maria Francisca de Ureña and her family. Antonio Delgado's and Juana Xaviera's children have these names plus the names of the Almeria Delgados. The church office gave me photocopies of these entries. They were not especially forthcoming either.
