Miguel Tenorio de Alba (ONMF: 293 & 395), native of Zacatecas and born circa 1675, had a brother named Nicolás Tenorio who was married in Zacatecas on 8 December 1686. A premarital investigation record dated 22 November 1686, Zacatecas, identified Nicolás "Thenorio" as español and a legitimate son of "Juan Thenorio y Da Josepha Lopes Sandobal." Nicolás sought to marry María de Rada, española and a native of Zacatecas, legitimate daughter of Joseph de Rada, deceased, and Ygnés de Arteaga. All these individuals were identified as españoles and originarios of Zacatecas. This indicates that Juan Tenorio and Josefa López de Sandobal were natives of Zacatecas.
Nicolás Tenorio signed his petition to marry María de Rada. In further testimony, he declared he was age twenty-five (born circa1661) and that his parents were españoles y vecinos of Zacatecas. The three witnesses to the investigation were: Nicolás Mendoza, age sixty, español and vecino of Zacatecas, who knew the couple since birth in Zacatecas and declared there was no known impediment to their proposed marriage; Nicolás de Trevo, age fifty-one, español and vecino of Zacatecas, gave the same testimony, having known both since their birth; and Juan Bautista Gorrogín, age twenty-five, español and vecino of Zacatecas, who had known both all of their lives, and was aware of no impediment to the proposed marriage.
