392 University of California Publications in History [Vol. 1
In the early history of New Mexico, El Paso became the bulwark
of the New Mexican colonists against the ravages of the Pueblo
Indians, and made it possible eventually for Spanish arms to
repossess the abandoned province. And, as El Paso was the bulwark
of New Mexico, it was also the safeguard of the frontier
settlements of Nueva Vizcaya. Nor is the relation of El Paso
to early Texas history the least important part that place plays
in the frontier history of New Spain. Though the beginning of
Texas is commonly associated with the small group of missions
established by Massanet in 1690 on the Neches River in Eastern
Texas, as a matter of fact, the true beginnings of what is now
Texas are to be found in the settlements grouped along the
Rio del Norte in the El Paso district.

Roots of the Spanish Surname Chavez-Chaves

CHAVES/CHAVEZ. In old Galician Spanish and in Portugese, the word meant 'keys'm and was conferred upon two brothers who wrested the ancient town of Chaves from the Moors. Fray Angelico Chavez says the general spelling of the name in NM is Chavez, but Chaves is the older form. The ancestor of the NM families bearing this name was Don Pedro Duran de Chavez, a native of Derena in the province of Extremadura, Spain. This Chavez may be the Pedro Gomez Duran in the Onate Lists of 1600. Don Fernando de Chavez returned with the reconquest of 1692, and his descendants spread from the ancestral lands of Bernalillo and Atrisco all the way down to Belen.Three members of the Chavez line were governors of NM between 1822 and 1834; Francisco Xavier Chavez, 1822-23; Jose Antonio Chaves, 1828-31; Mariano Chavez, 1833-34. Jose Francisco Chaves, son of Don Mariano, was a prominent figure in nineteenth century polictical and military life. In 1865 he was elected delegate to Congress where he served three terms.

New Mexico Prenuptial Investigations
From the Archivos Historicos del Arzobispado
de Durango, 1760-1799

Jose Colarte and Manuela Garda de Noriega, Chihuahua, 7-26 April 1760, Archivos Historicos
del Arzobispado de Durango (AHAD)-22, f. 397-405.
Jose Colarte, 38, was a native of the city and bishopric of Seville, the legitimate son
of Julian Colarte and Juana de Ponce. Manuela Garda de Noriega, 39, was the legitimate
daughter of the late Lazaro Garda de Noriega and Barbara Nino Ladeon de Guevara, residents
of the presidio of E1 Paso. Manuela was a native and citizen of El Paso and the widow of
Captain Domingo Garda.
Witnesses: In Chihuahua on 10 April 1760, Pedro Antonio Cadrecha {Zadrecha}. 45,
stated that he was a native of Gij6n in Asturias, in the bishopric of Oviedo, a citizen of
Chihuahua, and married there. He had known Colarte since 1735 when they had embarked
and come together from Spain on the admiral's flagship, the San Antonio. At that time Colarte
was 12 or 13. Arriving in 1736 at the port of Veracruz together, they went to Mexico City
where Colarte lived with a relative, Jose Bernardo de Hogal. After a time he went to San Luis
PotOSI with Bachiller Francisco Zapata, but soon returned with Zapata to Mexico City. In 1739
Colarte departed for Chihuahua, where he remained. He first worked as cashier at the place
of business of the late Domingo Garda, then was alone in the business. Colarte had not
married between 1735 and the present. Cadrecha had known Manuela Garda de Noriega, the
widow of Captain Domingo Garda, for some seven years.
Sebastian Guriciaga {Guruceaga}, 38, a native of Uruieta in the province of Guipuzcoa,
in the bishopric of Pamplona, merchant in Chihuahua, single, had known Colarte since he
came to Chihuahua in 1752. He stated that Colarte was 30 then and that from the time he
arrived to the present he had always been in business. First, he managed a store, later he
owned a store in that town, and now he had a wholesale business. In all that time he had not
married. Guriciaga stated that he had known Manuela Garda de Noriega since 1752 and had seen the burial of her late husband, Domingo Garda, but did not know whether Colarte was related to her.

Did you mean Bartolome Romero. Which one are you speaking of? From the first Bartolome that came to NM in 1598 with Onate, there are hundreds, some that do not descend from him. Do you have Manuel Ricardo (Marquez) Romero in your tree? I have a tree I have been posting to a blog, check it out. I will be posting him next. He has a unknown father which means all his male descendants are not Romero from that point on. I'm one of them.

José Antonio Esquibel shared this information about our founding families from New Mexico. This is why we all share the same ancestry lines.
Here’s some interesting figures for the number of Spanish citizens residing in New Mexico in the 1600s. These figures may surprise you. Notice the huge drop in the population beginning in 1602. The remaining citizens threatened to abandon New Mexico in 1609. The number of vecinos (taxpaying citizens/heads of household) didn’t change much from 1609 through 1638. The numbers increase slightly after 1650, mainly due to the growth of extended families. Most of the men served as soldiers.
1598-1600: 248 men, a small number with wives and children
1601: 217 men, a small number with wives and children
1602-1608: 68 men, about half with families
1609: 50 vecinos (tax-paying citizens/heads of household), almost all with families
1617: 48 vecinos, almost all with families
1620: 50 vecinos, almost all with families
1626: 50 vecinos, almost all with families; about 250 individuals plus 1,000 mestizos and Indians living in the Villa de Santa Fe.
1638: 50 vecinos, almost all with families; about 200 individuals
1661: 100 vecino households
1679: 170 vecino households, plus 43 soldiers from Mexico City
These 200-250 vecino families and the 1,000 mestizos and Indians that lived in the Villa de Santa Fe by 1626 were surrounded by thousands of Native Americans, including the numerous Pueblo Indians, The Navajo, and the various bands of Apache. It took quite a bit of gumption for these people to remain in New Mexico and make it their home.
