About Blas María de la Garza Falcón

Blas de la Garza Falcon was alderman of Monterrey for several years; procurer in 1638; assistant mayor in 1630, 1642 and 1657; and lord chief-justice and chief magistrate from 1644 until 1653.

The Monitor, McAllen, Texas, June 24, 2001, page 8E … “Sample Lineages: Marcos Alonso de la Garza” ... “Marcos Alonzo Garza is the forefather of many that carry the last names of Garza, de la Garza, Falcon and Treviño. What is known about Captain Marcos Alonzo Garza is that he was the son of Marcos Alonzo and Constanza La Garza. He also went by the names Marcos Alonzo Garza y del Arcon, Marcos Alonzo Arza y del Arcon, Marcos Alonzo Arza y del Arcon, Marcos Alonzo Garza del Alcon , and Marcos Alonzo. He was from Lepe, Huelva, Spain.

It is estimated he was born about 1550, came to New Spain serving the military and married in 1585 to Juana de Treviño from a prominent Mexico City military family. His assignments took the family to Durango and Zacatecas where his duties were supervising the mining of silver and gold. His whole family ended up in Nuevo Leon in the time period between 1596 and 1603, after completion of his military career. The family of Marcos Alonzo is included in the list of the 12 original founding families of Monterrey N.L. Mexico, which was founded in 1596.

It is not known where the "del Arcon" or "del Alcon" part of the last name came from. However, this ending had an impact on his son, Blas, for he used as his last name, de la Garza-Falcon. (Alcon is the ancient form of the word Halcon, Falcon) At the time it was common to use either paternal or maternal last names.

The children of Marcos Alonzo Garza never again used the paternal last name of Alonzo. Instead his sons Francisco and Pedro used the last name of "de la Garza," Blas used the last name of "de la Garza-Falcon," and Diego, Alonzo, and Jose used their maternal last name "Treviño."

As to why the last name Alonzo was totally abandoned by the family is a mystery, but it may have to do with the fact that Alonzo last name of Lepe, Huelva, Spain was associated with the Jews. Hernando Alonzo financed and aided Hernan Cortez in his actions. After the conquest of Mexico City, Hernando Alonzo, a well known Jew in the New World, was becoming too wealthy and powerful, and thus a threat. Hernando Alonzo was burned alive under orders of the Inquisition. While no link has been established between Hernando Alonzo and Marcos Alonzo, the name may have been changed for protection.

Only to add to the speculation is the fact that Marcos took his family to Monterrey where many other families with Jewish roots had settled. The Treviños which Marcos married into were known to be converts from Jews to Christians.

Today many people go by the surname Garza having dropped the "de la" many years ago. There is also the surname Falcon having dropped the "de la Garza," de la Garza and Treviño, and all come from the same common ancestor. For more information on this very topic refer to Tomas Mendirichaga Cueva's book "Origin of the Surname Garza and Treviño in Nuevo Leon". “

Twice Governor of Coahuila

Capitan Blas María de la Garza Falcon

  • was born in 1591 in Real de Mapimi, Durango.
  • He died on Feb 21, 1669 in Monterrey NL Mexico.[34]

Captain Bias de la Garza was born in Real de Mapimi, in the present state of Durango, around 1591 and died in the city of Monterrey February 21, 1669, "having confessed and received all the holy sacrements..." He was given a Christian burial in the church of the Franciscan convent of that city. The account of the burial says that he made a will before Captain Juan Cavazos, assistant mayor, but this will is not known.

He entered the conquest of Nuevo Reino de Leon "around the year one thousand and six hundred and seven. ... "(22) He was alderman of the municipal government of Monterrey in 1613, 1625, 1627, and 1628; procurer in 1638; assistant mayor in 1630, 1642, and 1657; lord chief-justice and chief magistrate of Monterrey from 1644 until 1653.

He contracted matrimony before 1626 with Beatriz Gonzalez Hidalgo, origin­ally from the town of Santiago del Saltillo, legitimate daughter of Captain Marcos Gonzalez and, probably, of Mariana Navarro.(23) From this union 5 sons and 12 daughters were born:

  • 1. Juan,
  • 2. Blas,
  • 3. Lazaro,
  • 4. Miguel,
  • 5. Francisco,
  • 6. Leonor,
  • 7. Margarita,
  • 8. Beatriz,
  • 9. Juana,
  • 10. Maria,
  • 11. Ines,
  • 12. Francisca,
  • 13. Isabel,
  • 14. Melchora,
  • 15. Luisa,
  • 16. Antonia, and
  • 17. ApoIonia.

All contracted matrimony. The males adopted the sur­names De la Garza Falcon and the females the De la Garza surname, except Bea­triz, who, in order to carry her mother's name, used the first maternal sur­name, that is to say, Gonzalez. (See Explanatory Notes I at the end.)
