The Family of Matías Romero and Doña Isabel de Pedraza in 17th-century New Mexico.
From the testimony of doña Isabel de Pedraza, it is learned she was born circa 1606 and that she was a first cousin of doña María de Archuleta (born circa 1611), the wife of Juan Márquez and a daughter of Asencio de Archuleta and Ana Pérez de Bustillos (AGN, Inquisición, t. 372, exp. 16, ff. 11r and 18v, Testimony of doña María de Archuleta, March 25, 1631). In all likelihood, Pedraza and Archuleta were related through their mothers, who were apparently two of the seven daughters of Alférez Juan Pérez de Bustillos (native of Mexico City, b.ca. 1557) and María de la Cruz.
Isabel married Matías Romero, son of Bartolomé Romero and Lucia López Robledo.252 (Matías Romero was born in 1597-1598 in route to Nuevo Méjico, Nueva España 252 and died in 1648 in Santa Ana, Pueblo, Nuevo Méjico, Nueva España 252,416.)
