Titulos de sitios de ganado mayor y caballerias Hacienda de Guanamé


Calvillo, Isidro, scribe.


Five ledgers containing certified copies of the original land grants issued by Isidro Calvillo, escribano público y nacional, in 1868 on behalf of Atanasio Hernández and Francisco de P. Hernández, brothers and current owners of these properties. The land titles were confirmed to various persons in the eighteenth century as the Spanish crown sought to issue titles to lands that had been previously occupied without title or lands that it deemed vacant (realengas). The primary recipient of these titles was Francisco de la Cotera Salmont, a Mexico City merchant and wholesaler, who owned an hacienda dedicated to sheep husbandry named San Juan Zapi Guanamé. He married Ana María de Rivascacho, daughter of the first Marqués de Rivascacho. By the nineteenth century, these lands had been consolidated into the Hacienda de Guanamé, in the modern-day state of San Luis Potosí.
