About Antonio Baca

Antonio Baca was born circa 1589. He was married to Yumar Pérez de Bustillo who was born c.1591. They had three daughters: Gertudris, who married Antonio Jorge; Ana, who married Francisco López de Aragón, and Antonia, who was the wife of Antonio de Albizu. It does not appear that Antonio had any sons to carry on the Baca name. Antonio was the main ring-leader in the anti-Rosas faction which caused the Governors death. He was also the leader of the people who defied the Governor by barricading themselves with the Friars at Santo Domingo Pueblo. His turbulent career ended when he was be-headed along with seven others July 21, 1643. -------------------- He came with his family when they moved to New Mexico from New Spain in 1600. His family were among the Loyalists who stayed in New Mexico.

"Antonio Ortíz Baca, was a Capitán by 1628 and was twenty-six years old, he said, married and living in Santa Fé. He was the main ring-leader in the anti-Rosas faction which caused this Governor's death, January 25, 1642. He was also the leader of the people who defied the Governor by barricading themselves with the friars at Santa Domingo pueblo. His turbulent career ended on July 21 1643 when he was beheaded with others in Santa Fé.

His wife was Yumar Pérez de Bustillo, forty years old in 1631. She, too, had come to New Mexico as a child with her parents. Of their three known daughers, Gertrudis married Antonio Jorge, Ana was the wife of Franciso López de Aragon, and Gregoria married Antonio de Alvizu. What later Bacas were their sons, if any, cannot as yet be ascertained."
