  • 1. Diego Rodríguez

  • 3. Lucas García Rodríguez

Ines RODRIGUEZ [765] was born about 1550. I show Ines Rodriguez as the daughter of Diego de Montemayor and Inez Rodriguez because several published sources make that assertion; however, there are some who question, due to a lack of available evidence, whether she was indeed a daughter of Diego de Montemayor.

Parents: Governor Diego de MONTEMAYOR and Ines RODRIGUEZ.

Spouse: Baltasar de SOSA. Ines RODRIGUEZ and Baltasar de SOSA [365],[1867] were married.

A census of the Villa of Cerralvo (Monterrey) conducted on September 4, 1626, noted that Lucas Garcia and his family did not have a house at that time and that they lived in the house of his brother Diego Rodriguez. Diego Rodriguez' dwelling is described as being 50 paces from and facing the Convent of San Francisco. The dwelling contained 2 rooms and "un torrecilla alta", or small tower. Diego Rodriguez and his family lived in one of the rooms, his brother Lucas Garcia lived in the other room, and Diego Rodriguez' son-in-law Miguel de Montemayor lived with his family in the small tower. Children were: Capt. Diego RODRIGUEZ, Maria RODRIGUEZ, Capt. Lucas GARCIA.

Notes for Inés Rodriguez de Montemayor:

Beth Perez internet site lists Ines as Ines Rodriguez Carbajal. After contacting Beth for more information on where she had obtained the Carbajal last name, she was unable to provide a source. More research is required as to the validity of the Carbajal last name.

Inés Rodríguez, wife of Baltasar de Sosa. In 1548 Diego de Montemayor and Inés Rodríguez, his wife, embarked in Seville in route to la Nueva España.428 We have the suspicion that Diego de Montemayor was married three times: first with Inés Rodríguez, secondly with María de Esquivel, and thirdly with Juana Porcallo de la Cerca. Might the Inés Rodríguez married to Baltasar de Sosa not have been the daughter of his first marriage? If it were so, and Lucas García would be grandsons of the governor Diego de Montemayor.
