Early Settlers of Revilla: Cristobal Gutierrez de Lara and Isabel de Benavides

Cristobal Gutierrez de Lara and Isabel de Benavides

An early settling family of Revilla (Ciudad Guerrero) is that of Cristobal Gutierrez de Lara and of Isabel de Benavides. They are listed in the 1757 census of Revilla as follows, "Don Cristobal Gutierrez casado con Doña Isabel Benavides, cuatro sirvientes, todas armas y cuatro caballos".

The parents of Cristobal were Nicolas Gutierres de Lara and Clara de Trevino Renteria, all from El Valle del Carrizal.

The parents of Isabel de Benavides are Bernardo de Benavides and Francisca Reyes.

Here I list the names of their children and whom they married, to find out more about their descendants make sure to consult our Community Family Tree.

Note: With their children, I included Maria who is listed as (criada) in the 1753 census. I believe that she is a granddaughter of theirs.

Here is their family group:

  1. Thanks moises, Christobal is brother to my ancestor antonio Gutierrez De lara. He married Clara De Villarreal. Nicolas and Antonio’s parents were Melchor Gutierrez and Isabel De Lara. Melchor ‘s parents were Rodrigo Abrego Gutierrez and Isabel Rodriguez. Rodrigo’s parents were Agustin Guillen De Abrego and Leonor Gutierrez De Baeza.

  2. I keep getting tangled up with Maria Francisca Javiera Gutierrez de Lara and Maria Francisca Javiera Gutierrez de la Garza. The latter was my fifth great grandmother. She was the daughter of Jose Bernabe Gutierrez de Lara…A son of Antonio Melchor Gutierrez de Lara. So the confusion I guess. ( How is MFJ Gutierrez de Lara fit in to this pedigree or does she fit at all?) Was my 5 X gd a de Lara de La Garza? Maybe Rose Munguia can help? (my short term memory is having great difficulty with these repetitive names)

    1. I checked the names that you mention and they are not in our database. The Gutierrez de Lara are too many and the names are repeated several times.
