About María Bernardina de Salas y Trujillo

AKA Bernardina de Salas y Orosco and Bernardina Trujillo.

It is no wonder that Bernardina de Salas Orozco y Trujillo and her family are listed as the first family of Alburquerque in New Mexico Genealogical Society's monumental book, Aqui Se Comienz. As I journey through this book, time and time again, I find myself coming back to Bernadina. She should really be called the "Founding Woman of Alburquerque," since she raised or is related to many of the people that are contained within the book.

Family Background Information.


Information from Hurtado's declaration to governor, dated October 17, 1661, Santa Fé, indicates that he was married by 1652. His wife has been identified by Fray Angélico Chávez as Bernardina de Salas y Trujillo (sometimes called Bernardina de Salas y Orozco). Chávez indicated that Andrés Hurtado was referred to as a son-in-law of Diego Trujillo (see ONMF, pg. 10).

The original source (AGN Tierras, t. 3268, f. 94) refers to Captain Diego de Trujillo as an encomendero and then mentions "su hijo Capn Franco de Trujo y sus yernos Capn Xptoval Vaca y Capn Andres Hurtado." This record clearly indicates that the wives of of Cristóbal Baca and Andrés Hurtado (Ana Moreno de Lara and Bernardina de Sala y Trujillo, respectively) were daughters of Captain Diego de Trujillo, and thus they were sisters of Francisco de Trujillo.

Fray Angélico Chávez refered to Bernardina de Salas y Trujillo as a daughter of Francisco de Trujillo, but did not provide a specific source citation for this statement. It appears that there may have been some confusion that resulted in the inconsistency with his previous statement about Andrés Hurtado being his son-in-law. Chávez also mentioned that Bernardina de Salas was a "grand-daughter of María de Vera," but once again did not give a specific source citation for the statement.

Based on the declaration of Andrés Hurtado that he arrived in New México in 1649 and was married and had a family of five children in 1661, the eldest of which was nine years of age (b. abt. 1652), we can estimate the year of marriage with Bernardina de Sala y Trujillo as circa 1649-1651. As such Bernardina de Salas y Trujillo was a contemporary of Francisco de Trujillo, rather than his daughter. This further supports the statement that Andrés Hurtado was a son-in-law of Diego de Trujillo.
