    Biography/History

    Annotated by Melchor de Molina and Toriobio de Ma. Villa in Puebla de los Angeles, New Spain, in 1582 and 1584 respectively. Melchor de Molina also appears as the scribe for Leonardo Ruiz de la Peña's testament in the Archivo del Convento de la Concepción in Puebla (ACCP, Libro de Profesiones, f. 2, 1586/07/17).

    Scope and Content

    These three notarial documents from the end of the sixteenth century in the city of Puebla de los Angeles document the system through which quotidian transactions were formalized through the use of a public scribe in early colonial Mexico. As three separate notarial contracts, there do not appear to be any linkages.
    Text in Spanish.
