About the Chavez surname

There are many of my ancestors named CHAVEZ who were born in the territory of New Mexico in the years 1800 and before. example, CANDIDO CHAVEZ was BORN in 1886 in NEW MEXICO, U.S.A. This surname goes all the way to Spain, the Z was dropped changed to CHAVES around 1885. ....................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................... A versão mais aceita sobre a origem do sobrenome CHAVES e a cidade de CHAVE em Portugal, tendo começado a usar como sobrenome por volta do ano de 1160. No Brasil, no século XVIII os Chaves já estavam presente pelo menos nos estados de Pernambuco, Minas Gerais e Ceará. Meu 6o avô faleceu em 1774 em Aracati, Ceará, Brasil.
