Pedro Varela de Losada was an Alférez, thirty-six years old in 1644, and was referred to as a native of New Mexico in 1660. His wife was Ana Hoguín, and they lived in the Sandía district. It was at his estancia, somewhere in the present site of Alburquerque, that a meeting was held in 1664 for founding an official settlement in the valley of Atrisco. Capitán Pedro was at death's door sometime prior to 1667, but it cannot be ascertained if he died then. He and Juan Varela had been condemned to death for treason in 1643, but escaped execution. It is very likely that Lucía Varela de Losada, wife of Francisco Jurado de Gracia, was his daughter.
