About Álvaro García Holgado

He came to New Mexico with the Second Wave of Colonization in 1600.

In 1609, he was a Alférez escorting the wagon-train that brought Governor Peralta to New Mexico. By 1625, he was a Captain, 48 years old, and living in Santa Fé.

His wife was Juana de los Reyes, forty or fifty in 1631, and a sister of Juana Sánchez. These two women were accused of using bizarre remedies to hold their husband's affections.

The children of Alvaro and Juana were Diego, Juan, Francisco, and possibly Lucia López de Garcia.

Alvaro appears to be the progenitor, either by a second wife, or through one of his children, of the López de García family group.

-------------------- In March 1599 don Juan de Onate wrote the viceroy of Neuva Espana and requested additional soldier and families to help strengthen the colony that had been established.

With approval, the recruitment began in late summer of 1599. 65 Spaniards and 25 servants were recruited at Mexico City. By October 1599, recruits, including women, children, and servants, were at the outpost of Santa Barbara in the Valle de San Bartolome in Nueva Vizcaya. After some delay, these settlers began their journey to New Mexico in late September 1600 on the route of El Camino Real de Tierra Adentro, the route that Onate had taken in the original expedition of 1598 and which by now had stopping places about every ten miles. The group arrived at Onate’s colony on December 24, 1600. Many of these settlers became discouraged and disappointed and left in late October 1601. The families that remained from the second wave of colonization are common ancestors for people with Hispano roots in colonial New Mexico.

Alvaro Garcia Holgado married Juana de los Reyes in New Mexico. They had 3 sons and a daughter. This family name was shortened to Garcia through the decades of the 1600s. --------------------
