• Background Information. 1511
Three brothers, Juan Borruel de Luna, Bernardino de Luna & Diego Dorruel Luna, left Spain to find fortune and adventure in the northern frontiers of Nueva Galicia & Nueva Viscaya in New Spain. We know of them becasue Bernardino left their names in a will that was date 31 May 1577. He declared that he was the son of Antón Borruer and Pascuala de Luna and that he was born in the Kindom of Aragón. In a document dated 1582, Bernardino de Luna gave his home town as
the Villa de Castro in the realm of Aragón.

Juan Borruel de Luna was married to Ana de Gamarda, daughter of Pedro de Quiroga, by the time that Pedro de Quiroga granted land to Juan on 8 Sep 1572. Although Pascuala de Rueda could be the daughter of any of the three brothers, Juan, Diego and Bernardino, it is likely that she was Juan's and Ana's daughter.

One of the clues that suggest that Juan and Ana were the parents of Luis Gallegos's wife Pascuala de Rueda is a last will and testiment of don Lucas Hurtado y Valle. Lucas mentions his wife, María de Luna, as the daughter of Juan Borruel and Ana de la Mancha (a.k.a. Ana de Gamarda). Lucas also mentions Pedro de Quiroga (son of Ana and name sake for his grandfather & his wife's brother) as guarantor of his estate and appointed Luis Gallegos as the executor of the estate. Add to this the fact that Luis Gallegos de Terrazas and Pascuala de Rueda had a son who used the used the name Juan Borruel de Luna. Their other son was named Diego Gallegos, which would tie them to Jual Borruel de Luna's brother Diego.
