In 1662, he was fifty, a Sargento Mayor, living in the jurisdiction of Sandia as Lieutenant General for the Rio Abajo area, as well as Alcalde Mayor of Zuni. He then declared that he was born in México City. His wife was Catalina Vásquez.

In 1661, Governor Mendizábal confiscated his Zuni alcaldía. Many records can be found that tell of his troubles with this governor. From then on we learn that his home was four leagues from Sandia Pueblo, and that his two sons-in-laws were Andrés Hurtado and Cristóbal Baca. The name of his estancia was "Paraje de las Huertas." Diego gave his age as forty-eight in 1661. By 1669, he was Maese de Campo and also Syndic of the Franciscans at Sandia. His wife age her age as forty-eight at this time, and stated that she had been born in Santa Fé. Diego also served a short term as second Alcalde Mayor of Guadalupe del Paso.

In 1680, he gave his opinions about the cause and problems of the Indian Rebellion, but is not mention in the following year. He died at Casas Frande in 1682. He had one son, Francisco, who married to a daughter of María de Vera. ONMF, pg. 108

In his claim there was mention of his son, Captain Francisco de Trujillo, and two son-in-laws: Captain Cristóbal Baca (husband of Ana Moreno de Lara, aka Moreno de Trujillo) and Antonio de Carbajal. This information indicates that Truijillo had a second daughter whose name is not known at this time, but who was the wife of Antonio de Carbajal.

Diego married Catalina Marquez Vásquez, daughter of Diego Márquez and Bernardina Vásquez, about 1633 in Sandia, Bernalillo, Nuevo Méjico, Nueva España.

The major accomplice in the death of Governor Rosas. He was beheaded in 1643. His half-breed illegitimate son, Juan Márquez, 36 years old in 1639-40, an alferez and treasurer of the Holy Crusade was said to have been murdered by orders of Governor Rosas, which accounts for Diego’s part in the Rosas Murder. He apparently was related to co-conspirators Cristóbal Enriques, who was also executed, and Agustín Carvajal.
