Juan de Trujillo and his wife, Elvira Sánchez Jiménez, both natives of the Rio Abajo, returned with the Reconquest. He gave his age as forty in 1695, and forty-seven in 1696, always claiming the Rio Abajo as his place of birth. Hence, he was in all probability the Juan de Trujillo who passed muster in 1681, and the son of old Francisco Trujillo. At the turn of the century he moved from the Albuquerque area to Pojoaque, where he bought considerable property in 1701 and 1702. There he gave his age as sixty-six in 1714. His two known children were María, wife of Juan de Mestas Peralta, and Antonio, married to Ana María de Córdoba.
