El Camino Real de Tierra Adentro brought wagon trains of good to trade as well as new settlers into New Mexico.

They married the daughter and granddaughters of the earlier settlers. In parenthesis is the earliest known year for which those families that can still be found in New Mexico appear in New Mexico records, with place of origin if known.

Pedro Lucero de Godoy worked as a Lt. Governor and Commanding General of Royal Troops in New Mexico.

Pedro Lucero de Godoy was a native of Mexico City, where he had a brother, Francisco; another Diego, was a secular priest there.

Pedro was involved in most of the Church and Political intrigues in New Mexico of his time, although he managed to steer clear of unpleasant consequences experienced by others. By 1663, when he gave his age as sixty-three, he had attained the rank of Maese de Campo. In this same year he was Lieutenant Governor of the Kingdom, as well as, Syndic of the Franciscans.

His first wife was Petronila de Zamora, who married him, she later claimed, when she was eleven years old. To all apperaences, she was the Petronila listed as the youngest child of Bartolome Montoya and Maria de Zamora when they came to New Mexico in 1600. They had a daughter, Catalina, who married Diego Romero, son of Gaspar Perez, and also a son, Juan, also prominent in public affairs. Another son, Pedro, Alcalde of Santa Fe, at this time, (1663) might have been a child by Petronila, or else his second wife.

Pedro's second wife was Francisca Gomez Robledo, who was also active in affairs connected with the Palace of Governors, in Santa Fe. In 1663, they had five daughters "of Marriagable age," and the young Pedro, just mentioned. Another son, Francisco, figured in later historical events. One of the daughters, Maria, who was perhaps the youngest, became the wife of Lazaro de Misquia.

Two other Lucero women, Ynez, wife of Juan de la Escallada, and Luisa, married to Pedro Montoya de Esparza, were most likely his daughters, Pedro Lucero de Godoy, also had a stepson, Antonio de Salas.

Pedro died before the rebellion of 1680 and Francisca appears to be among the colonists who were massacred; from a statement by Diego Lucero de Godoy.
