About Capitan Sebastian Rodriguez de Salazar

Captain Sebastián Rodríguez de Salazar was killed by the Acomans.

He first went to Mexico, then moved to Santa Fé, New Mexico in 1619.

He was a captain, forty-four years of age, living in Santa Fé with his Luisa Días in 1626. They had come to New Spain seven years before.

The Origins of New México Families, pg. 95 Note: The following contains speculation.

What his exact involvement was in the assassination of Governor Rosas is unknown, but it would appear that he was involved with the political affairs in 1641-43, along with Juan Ramirez de Salazar, who was most probably a nephew. It also appears they were closely related to some of the conspirators. He most likely was the uncle of Francisco Salazar and his sister Catalina, wife of Luis Martin Serrano, one of the masked men who broke down the door, January 25, 1642.

As a Capitan, he barely escaped execution for sedition under Governor Pacheco. He came to New Mexico, probably from Nueva Viscuya, in the 1620's, with the other Salazars.
